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

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 ELCA.   
 Biennial Convention of the Synodical Women was held June 12 and 13 to conduct the business of the Women, as well as to participate in workshops and worship together. I attended that, and was our voting delegate at the business meeting.

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.
