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!

News from the Church Basement Ladies
December, 2015
And off we go, into Advent and the last month of 2015. Just being a bit philosophical here, when I was young I never even thought of living in another century, let alone getting more than a decade in.   Just spending a moment to be thankful for life and health and daily food, and preparing to welcome the Christ child who comes reminding us of our gifts of love.   

Each year we send quilts and kits to Lutheran World Relief, and they are rather costly to ship, so this year, thanks to several folks, we were able to actually pay to ship the gifts we sent.Thanks to Linda Hanson, Alma Houfe, and the Cambridge Piggly Wiggly  (and all of you who brought in receipts from the Pig).  
Don't forget to get to the Christmas Brunch at 9:30 AM on Saturday, December 5 in Friendship Hall.   Bring a guest if you'd like. We'll be hosted by Joy Circle. This is always a wonderful way to begin the season, we'll be waiting to see you there. After the brunch, at least one representative from each circle is asked to stay for a brief meeting on giving away the money in the treasury.

Several of you have lists of gifts to buy for residents at Alden Estates and Skaalen, so please see that they get back to church by the first week of December so they can be taken to the appropriate places for gifting.  

We have had to cancel our January meeting so often that this year we decided not to schedule one at all.   Our first meeting of 2016 will be Pin and Sew on Thursday, February 4, at 9 AM.   

Thanks again to our faithful delivery folks for doing Meals on Wheels. Here is the January schedule:

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
