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
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
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.

News from the Church Basement Ladies
Greetings from the church
basement!!! We have met for several sewing
mornings, and are putting out a few quilts, but we
need help. Our biggest need is for people to tie
the knots. This is pretty easy to do, and it's fun,
too. We will meet on August 6 from 8 to noon.
Please come and help, and some of us may go out to
lunch together. The last time we also went to buy
school supplies for the kits, and made it a full
day. We will work on putting kits together on
August 6, with whatever supplies we have by then.
Now is the time, they're on sale. I did leave out
crayons in the first lists, and we can use boxes of
either 16 or 24 crayons.
The Fireside outing is coming up, October 6, meet
there around 10:30. Rides can be arranged for those
who prefer not to drive. The cost is $38.50, which
includes tip. Checks can be given to our treasurer,
Our next meeting will be on Thursday, September 3
at 2:00 PM in Friendship Hall (lower church). Our
hostesses will be LIght Circle, and the program will
be an introduction to one of our Bible Studies for
the year, Philippians. Please join us. Thanks to
those who delivered Meals on Wheels last month. Your
help is so much appreciated. Our next opportunity
is weekdays from October 5 to 16. Please let me
know when you can help. firstname.lastname@example.org or
423-4048. I'm waiting to hear from you!!!
Thanks to all of you who get the work done around
East. I'm not going to start naming names, for I
surely would not get them all, but your help is
appreciated, and noticed.
God Bless you.
Transforming Faith and Life
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.
