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 East Koshkonong
News from the Church Basement Ladies
December, 2016
Thanks to Steadfast Circle for taking care of the duties last month. And thanks to all of you who did tasks for the church and for others. Thanks to our youth for coming up with the wonderful Nativity Scene craft. What a great idea! We are so proud of our youth, who are so willing to help others in lots of ways, and are having fun all the while. Thanks, also, to Jamie, Ann, Sabra, Shawn, and others who work with our youth. Your energy and creativity are evident, and appreciated.

It's the end of another year, we have begun the church year, with the Advent season, and we are thinking "Time flies when you're having fun" We have been having fun this year, doing God's work with our hands.

Peace Circle is hosting the Christmas Brunch on Saturday, December 3 at 9:30. Please come and join us as we eat, sing, and welcome the coming of Christ.

Thank you to all the meals deliverers. Our next gig begins on February 6, and I will take volunteers whenever you want to commit. Contact me at 423-4048, or lienfarm2@netwurx.net or see me in church!

We do not have a regular meeting scheduled in January, as the weather is often not good. We may schedule a casual sewing time, we'll let you know when that happens.

Best wishes for a blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year.
God Bless you,
Communicator Carolyn

Let’s Knit & Crochet Baby Blankets!
I’m looking for knitters and crocheters to help me make baby blankets for Global Health Ministries. Blankets don’t have to be fancy. They can be just plain knit or crochet. They should be at least 36” x 36”. If you don’t want to make a whole blanket you can make strips or squares and I will put them together. I also have yarn if you need it. As long as the yarn is washable it can be any color. If you have any questions contact Beverly Lien
