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.
Thank You From Luther

Let’s Knit & Crochet
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
the magazine of Women of the ELCA, offers a mix of
articles, theological reflections, devotions, and
stories of comfort and challenge that help readers
grow in faith and engage in ministry and action.
Gather is published 10 times a year with combined
issues in January/February; July/August.
