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!

Café is an electronic magazine for young women who want to build Community, participate in Advocacy, strengthen Faith, and strive toward Enlightenment (CAFE!). It incorporates a Lutheran perspective for women of Christian faith or simply for any woman who is interested in how faith can relate to the issues that women face today.

Women of East News
August, 2014
Women of the ELCA Communications
When you read this I will be back from our Triennial Gathering in Charlotte. I will report on that at our September meeting, scheduled for Thursday, September 5 at 2 PM in the Lower Church Friendship Hall. The program will be an introduction to the new Bible Study, and a good time for all of us to get together again.

We will have an additional sewing morning on Thursday, August 7, 8-12 AM in the Upper Church Sewing Room. Everyone is invited to come and get in on the fun. We'll have a coffee break mid-morning as all good Norwegians do, and those who wish can go out to lunch at noon.

Christian Fish Fry is October 7.. Sign up later, and money to Jo Lee.

Hope you are all having a great summer.
God Bless you.

September 2013-May 2014:
Gathered by God

Gather Magazine 2013Company’s coming! Bible study author Kay Ward, a bishop in The Moravian Church, has invited nine women from the Old Testament, several from the New Testament, and a handful of women she knows to stop in for a visit. They will be companions with us each month, long enough for us to get to know them and to also get to know ourselves a bit better. Their stories will draw us into Bible study, worship with the Psalms, and opportunities to tell our own stories. Ward was elected to be a bishop in the Moravian Unity in 1998, the first woman to be chosen in its 550 years of history. She has served as a parish pastor, and in 2006 retired as professor and administrator of Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pa. Kay has written three collections of essays and lives in a log cabin with her husband in central Wisconsin. Click here for more information.
