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 the ELCA Communications
Thanks are due to the many of you who brought school supplies to put into backpacks for Lutheran World Relief to give to children around the world who need this help to be able to learn.   We have found a way to track them, so perhaps we can learn where in the world our gifts are being used.   We packed 88 backpack school kits, and 52 quilts and blankets.   There will still be some health kits and sewing kits, but those still need some additions, so we don't have numbers on those yet.  Thanks, also to all who helped to pack, label and weigh the boxes for shipping in October, and thanks to Heidi who is planning to make that delivery to the freight yards in Madison. 

Thanks to those of you who delivered meals on wheels this month. This is an important and helpful activity that we can participate in with the rest of the Cambridge religious community. Our next  assigned dates are December 15-26, and I will be accepting offers to do this, so give me a call (423-4048) or an email  (lienfarm2@netwurx.net )  and I will get you on the schedule. And then look for the schedule in November's newsletter as your reminder.  

Our next meeting of Women of East will be on Thursday, October  2nd, at 9 AM. We will sandwich and tie quilts, have coffee and potluck lunch, a business meeting, and Bible Study.

Hopefully many of you are joining us at the Fireside on Tuesday, October 7. We will meet there for lunch at 10:30 AM and enjoy the concert following that.  

Happy October.  
God Bless you.

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.
