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, 2015
Did anyone notice where the summer went so quickly? And why does the winter not pass so fast?
The next meeting of the Women of East will take place on September 3, in Friendship Hall at the lower church.   This is the one meeting we have of the traditional meeting type, where we have some food, probably a dessert, hosted by Light Circle, a business meeting, and an introduction to the Bible Study of the year. These studies are taking a different form now; they are arranged in 3 month lessons, and the subject changes. You may have noticed in your Gather magazine that the first subject is Sabbath Keeping. This does not point only to Sundays, but is about a rhythm and pace for life, letting us know we need to take time for ourselves and for appreciating the gifts of God. A later one will deal with the book of Philippians, and will be introduced at this September meeting. All are invited to attend. It's a good time to renew friendships with the other women of East, and get ourselves organized for the year. We will need to select a day for finishing the packing  (we packed around 70 school kits in August, and can pack as many more as we have contents for the backpacks), and getting our quilts and kits ready for shipping in October.
You may have seen Sue Repyak with a signup sheet for our Fireside outing on October 6.   This event is for all who would like to attend the Christian Concert and buffet lunch.   The cost is $38.50 which includes tip, and is payable to Sue.  Here's another opportunity for fun and fellowship with our friends at East. 
Our next Meals on Wheels work will happen on weekdays from October 5 thru 16.   Please let me know when you would like to do this, and I will get you on the schedule.   Contact me at 423-4048 or     Thank you so much for taking on this responsibility, and thanks for contacting me so that I don't have to make all those phone calls to talk you into taking a day or two of deliveries!!!   We will need someone for October 6 who is not planning on attending the Fireside outing, so be aware when signing up.    Thanks again.
God Bless you all for the work you do for Christ,   Remember, this is God's Work, our hands.
