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
Dear Women of East,   I'm not sure how it got to be the end of November already, and the year is mostly over, so thank you for all that you have done throughout the year.   Thanks to the kind person who made three quilt tops of the squares that were in the Narthex.   More squares will appear for some more tops. These are put together  on Pin and Sew days, which are always open to everyone who likes to be crafty, or can make knots. Our next Pin and Sew Day will be on Thursday, January 8," God willing and the creek don't rise", or more likely the snow! We begin around 9, break for coffee, break for pot luck lunch, then meeting and Bible Study. Thanks to everyone who comes to help. 

The Meals on Wheels Delivery schedule is as follows:
Monday and Tuesday, Dec; 15 and 16    Don and Eileen Hoehn Wednesday and Thursday,   Dec. 17 and 18,    Marge Stach & Bea Householder Friday, Dec. 19,   Wilma Furseth
Monday and Tuesday, Dec 22 and 23,   Judy Rusch
Wednesday, Dec 23rd, Ron Anderson Thursday and Friday, Dec.25 and 26   Susan Kaare. Thanks to all of you for taking on this task in this busy Christmas season.
Thankofferings were collected on November 23rd to help in the work of the Women of the ELCA.  Thanks to those who helped with that  offering. Lefse making will take place on Saturday, November 29, so sign up to come and help, and learn, or teach. 

Christmas Brunch will happen on Saturday, December 6, at 9:30 AM. Invitations are extended to all women of East. We will eat together, hear again the Christmas story, and sing Christmas carols. Child care will be provided by kid care extraordinaire Jenna, so we hope to welcome women of all ages. We will finish in time for you  to get to Country Christmas in Cambridge for the afternoon. Again, thanks to all who have worked so hard to keep things going around the church. We are the church together. 

Blessed Advent, Merry Christmas,
Carolyn Communicator
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.
