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 East Koshkonong
News from the Church Basement Ladies
September, 2016
Mange Tusen Takk for many things this summer.   If I have forgotten anyone, you are thanked as well!
Thanks for all of the school supplies donated for Lutheran World Relief and Cambridge Schools. We will have at least 125 kits to send and a box for our school. Shipping day is October 1, so we will be scheduling a packing day in September.
Thanks to Cambridge Family Dental for toothbrushes for the Health Kits. Thanks to Piggly Wiggly for the latest assist from our receipts. This may go for shipping, or to help fulfill our mission commitment, and thanks to you for saving and turning in your receipts. Thanks to Trevor Gunderson for providing food for our Habitat workers, and to those workers who seem to have had fun building.  (more opportunities in September). Thanks to those who were willing, but did not need to deliver Meals last month because of the closed restaurant.  
There will be a Synodical Women of the ELCA event  on Saturday, September 24 at Good Shepherd West, near Verona. The morning will be an exploration of the seasons of our lives, and it's called Cracked Pots. There are workshops to explore in the afternoon. The cost is $15, which includes a box lunch. There is registration information on the Women of the ELCA bulletin board in the lower church basement. I plan to go, and have some seats to fill in my car. It's always fun to mingle with friends from neighboring units. Registration is due on September 9th.
Plan ahead for Triennial Gathering next summer, July 13-16 in Minneapolis. If you have not attended in the past, now's the time to start. Warning: this is addictive. It's so much fun, that you will want to go every three years.   I have been attending each one since 1999. There will be group travel by bus or train. Early bird registration saves you $40 before January 6. Registration information available at
Our next Meals on Wheels assignment is October 31 thru November 11, weekdays.   I'm taking names!!!  so contact me at 423-4048 or    and tell me which days you would like.     
We meet next on Thursday, September 1, at 9 AM.   Joy circle is in charge of the day, with coffee in the AM, and pot luck lunch at noon.  We will want to finish as many quilts as we can, to ship in October. Please come if you can. Thanks for all you do for East Koshkonong.   
God Bless you.

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
