Women of the ELCA


Purpose Statement
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Women of the ELCA (WELCA)
Our women meet on the first Thursday of the month in September, October, November, January, February, March, April, May and June for sewing in our Sewing Room in the basement of First East Church.  We put together and tie around 80 quilts each year to send to Lutheran World Relief, along with sewing kits, school kits, and soap.  These meeting are open to anyone who would like to help.  Squares usually are available for those who would like to sew tops at home.

We have seven circles which meet monthly for business and Bible Study (this year it is the book of Romans), and which do many of the duties around the church, find ushers and provide flowers for the altar. Circles meet at various times, morning, afternoon or evening,

A book is published each year including all the necessary information about circles and the Women of East Koshkonong. 

Of course our women are also involved in the whole life of the church, including teaching, singing, reading, and leading,  and we also  enjoy meeting for study, food, and  fun.  Join us.

Thank You From Luther Elementary!

September, 2014
Women of the ELCA Communications
Where did the summer go? It can’t be time for school to start again already!

Women of East put in several extra sewing days, and came up with more than a dozen extra quilts to send to Lutheran World Relief. Thank you to all of you who helped with that sewing and tying. We will meet in September on Thursday the 4th at 2 PM in Fellowship Hall in the lower church to begin our season in a traditional way. Light circle will be our hosts, and we will learn about the Bible Study for this year, “Transforming Life and Faith.” Please plan to join us there. Note to Peace circle- we will all try to attend this September afternoon meeting instead of our regular time in September.

We are collecting school supplies for the school kits to send to Lutheran World Relief. Please bring any of these that you are able to supply to church, and we will find a time to do the packing. The list of needed supplies is found in the Women of the ELCA yearly booklet If you do not have one, ask Julie at the office, or find one in the narthex. Shipping day is Saturday, October 4, so we must set a time for our packing of kits and quilts.

Jo Lee is gathering reservations for our trip to the Fireside on Tuesday, October 7. Please have your money to her by the end of August, or at least let her know you are planning to attend. Cost is $34.95 for each person attending. It’s a well known Gospel singing group, and you are sure to enjoy that as well as the buffet fish fry/chicken fry.

September 2014-May 2015:
Transforming Faith and Life

Gather Magazine 2013A new life partner, a new child, a new job, a new home: most of us recognize how our lives are changed by these experiences. In “Transforming Life and Faith” we will consider how our lives and our faith journeys are transformed by the events we experience and the people we meet. In both the Old Testament and New Testament, and especially in Acts of the Apostles, we will read about people who have life-changing experiences: Paul on the road to Damascus, Moses in the wilderness of Midian, Lydia praying by a river in Macedonia, an Ethiopian man traveling from Jerusalem to Gaza. We will watch them turn to and with God as their minds, hearts, and daily lives are altered. And we will reflect on the ways we, too, have been and will be transformed and called by God to serve God’s mission in the world.  Click here for more information.
