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
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
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.

We met for Pin and Sew and business meeting on
Thursday, June 4, with a nice representation to work
on the quilts we are making. There is always room
for more, however. We have scheduled Sewing
mornings on June 18th and July 16. These will be 8
AM to noon, with no meal served, tho some of us may
go out to lunch together. There is no meeting on the
first Thursday in July. The quilts we are working on
will get shipped in October, along with any kits we
can collect. There is a bin in the narthex of the
lower church for collection of school supplies for
the kits. Please pick up any of these things when
they go on sale soon. We need spiral notebooks,
pencils, pens, pink erasers, rulers, pencil
sharpeners, and blunt scissors. Just bring in any of
these things that you can, and we will put them
together later closer to the shipping day.
The October 6th Fireside outing was reviewed, and
since the tip amount is less than we had thought,
the price per ticket will be $38.50. When we get
closer to the time, Sue Repyak will have a sign-up
sheet available and will collect checks from those
who wish to attend, made out to Women of the

Transforming Faith and Life
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.
