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!

Women of the ELCA Communications
We canceled our January Sewing Day, a good choice, since the day turned out very cold
and very messy on the roads.   We will plan for our next day on  Thursday, February 5, beginning at
9 AM.   We'll break for coffee, share a potluck lunch, take care of our business meeting, and finish
with Bible Study.   Steadfast Circle is in charge for this month.    Please come and learn about our
mission work.  It's easy, and there are many knots to tie. 

Women of the ELCA booklets are now available in the Narthex. Pick one up there, especially if you do not get to a circle meeting. Thanks to Julie for doing the book for us. 

Peace Circle is presenting a Valentine pancake breakfast on Sunday February  15th after service.   Plan to come and have breakfast there with your church family.   It is not a fancy menu, but a chance to get together in the bleak mid-winter.  No tickets will be sold, just an offering.

We are scheduled to be Church of the Month at Skaalen in February. Look for sign-up sheets to volunteer your time. Some of the jobs are really interesting and fun. Please plan to help.  

Our next Meals on Wheels adventure is scheduled for weekdays from March 23rd through April 3rd.   Please let me know when you would like to do this.  It's easy, and much appreciated by the recipients.   Give me a call   608-423-4048, or email and tell me when you can help.   I need this in the next month so I can print the reminder schedule for March's newsletter.     Thanks for your help. 

Thanks for all of your help with all of the things we do.   Things go smoothly when we all pitch in and
offer our skills.

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.
