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!

News from the Church Basement Ladies
August, 2016
Fall is approaching again, and our focus is on School Kits for Lutheran World Relief.   If you are able to find some of the things on the list on sale, please do that and donate to the 100 kits we will prepare.   There is a full list of things needed in the Women of The ELCA at East  2016 Schedule booklet, but here are the things we need most :   spiral notebooks, rulers, pencil sharpeners, safety scissors, pink erasers, and crayons, (boxes of 16 or 24).     There are containers  in the Narthex to receive these items.   Thank you for anything you can do for these kits.

There will be 28 people in our group going to the Fireside on August 9:   looking forward to having a great day there.   Thanks to Sue for taking care of the reservations and sign-up.   The arrival time is 10:30am at the Fireside

Our Meals on Wheels deliveries were cancelled for this rotation because the Family Restaurant closed for a month.    Thank you to all those who so willingly take on this responsibility.   We'll be needing you again beginning the last day of October, and until November 11th.  

Skaalen Home will have an Ice Cream Social on Sunday, August 21st.    There will be pie and ice cream, and entertainment.    If you would like to help by making  a pie, contact Wilma.   This is a good time to get over there to visit residents we know, so take the opportunity to have pie and ice cream.    

We will meet in the Upper Church basement for sewing on Thursday, August 4.   This is an added day, so we will meet from 8 to noon, and will not have a business meeting.   No pot luck, either, but sometimes some of us find a place to go out to lunch.   Please come and have a fun few hours working and socializing.   We can always teach you what you need to know about making the ties to hold the layers of quilt together, and there are sewing machines for those who can sew edges.    You are always welcome to join the fun.
Hopefully the rest of your summer will be enjoyable, and not go too fast.  
God Bless you.

Let’s Knit & Crochet Baby Blankets!
I’m looking for knitters and crocheters to help me make baby blankets for Global Health Ministries. Blankets don’t have to be fancy. They can be just plain knit or crochet. They should be at least 36” x 36”. If you don’t want to make a whole blanket you can make strips or squares and I will put them together. I also have yarn if you need it. As long as the yarn is washable it can be any color. If you have any questions contact Beverly Lien
