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
February, 2016
Peace Circle will present a Valentine Brunch after service on Sunday, February 14.   All are invited to attend.   The menu includes pancakes, Canadian Bacon, and applesauce.   There is no ticket price, just an offering of your choice.   Come and share food and fellowship. If anyone would like to help with the dishes afterward, you are welcome in the kitchen!


Our next Pin and Sew day is scheduled for Thursday, February 4 at 9 AM.   We will have a pot luck lunch at noon, followed by a business meeting and Bible Study. All are welcome. We can find jobs for everyone. It's a fun time, and we hope to get a good amount of quilts done for Lutheran World Relief. We will be hosted by Light Circle on this day.   

Thank you to our faithful folks who delivered Meals on Wheels on those cold January days.   Your help is so much appreciated.   Our next delivery dates will be warmer, I'm almost sure-  we'll be delivering on weekdays from April 18 to 29th. Volunteers are welcome.   

Thank you to Peace Circle and Volunteers, for the funeral serving work last month.    There is a list of volunteers for this  work in our yearly booklet (page 26), and if you would like to be included in that list, let me know, or Julie in the office.   Speaking of the booklet, there are extra copies in the kitchen if you would like one.   
 
And thank you to all of you who do the important work for the family at East:  Circles, Altar Guild, cleaning, repairs, and much more.   We need everyone's help to keep  the church strong.       
God Bless you all.

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
