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
June, 2016
Thank you so much to all of you who provided parts for the Hospice and Newborn Kits that we took to Synod Assembly.   Totals of the ingathering were   922 Hospice Kits,    544 Newborn Kits, and 91 blankets.   Since our supplies went in 2 different vehicles, I have only totals for the kits.   East Koshkonong supplied 90 kits (about 75 of these were newborn kits), and 22 baby blankets.  These things came from 30 congregations, of the 140 some congregations in our Synod.  

Thank you so much for your generosity. The Assembly itself was very interesting. Please see Marilyn's report  article in this issue of the newsletter. Quilt making is coming right along this year, and we can always use help.   Next Sewing Day will be Thursday, June 2 at 9 AM, with potluck lunch at noon. Light Circle is our host.  Please come if you are available, and join in the fun.   Knot tying is not a difficult sport, and can be easily learned.    Another sewing morning is June 16, from 8 AM to noon, and does not include lunch. This event is for all ages and genders, so   come if you haven't before, and let's see how much we can accomplish.

There are two events scheduled at Skaalen this summer, a salad luncheon on June 28th (bring your favorite salad to share), and the Ice Cream Social on Sunday, August 21.

Our Fireside outing is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9. Sue Repyak will be taking reservations and money, which is $38.50, which includes lunch, Christian Concert, and tip.  
Our next Meals on Wheels work is scheduled for weekdays from July 25 thru August 5.   I am taking volunteers now  so please let me know when you can help.    608-423-4048 or  .   Early birds have already spoken, so let's get the schedule filled.   Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you to all for all that you do to keep things rolling at East Koshkonong.   Many  hands help make the work light.   Keep in touch about our latest work, Habitat for Humanity, help is always needed for this, builders as well as food suppliers.  
Enjoy the summer,    
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
