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.
