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!

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

Women of East Koshkonong
News from the Church Basement Ladies
January, 2017
Next up, 2017!!!
But to follow up on 2016, thanks are in order for many things done for East Koshkonong Church. Thanks to:
The guys who updated the bathrooms in the Upper Church basement, Peace Circle for  the Wonderful Christmas Brunch and other duties in December. And repeat for January! Everyone who helped to serve the funerals in December.  Light Circle and all who helped set up and decorate the tree in the sanctuary. Linda for the decorating all over the church. Those who provided gifts for Alden Estates, and Marilyn who organized that this year. Wilma and others providing gifts for Skaalen residents. Everyone whose generosity makes all of this possible. People who have delivered Meals on Wheels to fulfill our commitment to the community.
Our next Meals on Wheels delivery schedule will be weekdays from February 6 through 17. Please let me know what day or two you would do these deliveries  at   423-4048 or Thanks for your help.
There have been many funerals lately, and one of our commitments is to provide  a meal following the service if needed. Just a reminder, if the deceased has some affiliation with a circle, that group is asked first if they are able to take the responsibility, If not, the funeral serving group takes the reins, and volunteers  do this. There is a list in the  Women of the ELCA  booklet for women, and other volunteers are always appreciated. 
East is designated Church of the Month at Skaalen for January. We have special music for their Sunday Services, thanks to Andrew Severson, Vicki Schuh and the choir, Holly and Maggie Loomis, and Aryel Beck.   There is a sheet on our bulletin board in the basement for volunteers needed for activities and birthday gifts. Your help would be appreciated.   
There will be no regular Pin and Sew day in January, as  we usually need to cancel because of weather. If we schedule a different day, we'll let you know.    
Best wishes for a wonderful new year.                         
God Bless you.
Communicator Carolyn
