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!

We have begun again with quilt making after the winter's coldness. We had two days in April, and perhaps will schedule an extra one in May.The official Pin and Sew Day will be on Thursday, May 7, beginning at 9 AM. As usual we will be tying and sewing edges of quilts, and can use all the help we can get. So, even if you are not sure how we do this, please come, and someone will help you get started. We share a potluck lunch at noon, and have our business meeting after that, and then Bible Study.    

Synodical Women will  meet in convention on Friday, June 12th for the business meeting, and Saturday June 13th for all the rest of us. Diane Luginbuhl has consented to be our voting delegate again, and the rest of us can join her on Saturday for workshops and worship. There are workshops on many subjects, such as Bullying Basics, Definitions and Signs of Child Maltreatment, Refugee Resettlement, Yoga, Financial Strategies for Women,  Racial Justice, and others that are really on the front burner in our society today. There will be registration forms on the bulletin board, which need to be returned by May 18th, with a fee of $40. This meeting will be at Good Shepherd West, near Verona, and there is plenty of room there for all of us. I will be going, and would take riders!   Let's talk.  
Thanks to all of you who helped deliver Meals on Wheels last month. You are so much appreciated.   Our next schedule will happen weekdays from June 29 to July 10. If you are willing to take a day or two, please contact me the church office and I will get you on the schedule. I would like this done in the next few weeks, so the schedule can be in the June newsletter as a reminder.  
We are still unsure of the Fireside date on August 4, as they could not seat us all on the main floor for the program, and Sue is checking to see if we could at least get a few seats downstairs for those who cannot do stairs.   If the seating arrangement cannot be resolved we will reschedule for October. I will get this news to you as soon as it is known. This must be a popular group, for it to be so sold out so early.    This is a fun time for all of us, we are asking for the daytime show, and all are welcome to join the crowd as we enjoy fellowship over food and Christian music. 
Thanks again for all you do for East Koshkonong; a lot of cleaning, painting and moving things around have been happening lately, and all of this is greatly appreciated. Some things have changed locations in the kitchen. You may have to open a few doors and drawers to find what you are looking for. And thanks to the phantom plumber/handyman who has been replacing faucets and making our lives cleaner.       

God Bless you all,
Communicator Carolyn
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.
