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
October, 2016
Thank you to everyone who brought in school supplies. We were able to pack 138 backpacks for Lutheran World Relief, and there is also a box for Cambridge Schools.   God's work, Our hands. Confirmation youth will help pack, seal, and weigh the boxes containing the school kits, sewing kits, health kits, and quilts.  Thanks to them, and thanks to Heidi Woodstock and her family for delivering these items to the train yard  on October 1. God's work, our hands.
There will soon be packets of fabric squares to be found in the narthex, for assembly by someone who has a bit of time and likes to sew.   Just sew them together to make a quilt top and return them.   We'll take it from there.  
There will be a lefse making day on Saturday, November 19, (more information next month). Please plan to participate.
Thanks to Joy Circle for duties in September, and Light Circle who will be handling October, including  Pin and Sew on October 6 in the Upper Church Basement. We will work on next year's schedule at the business meeting, so it would be helpful if there is someone from each circle in attendance. As usual, we begin around 9, break for coffee, and share a pot luck lunch at noon. This is followed by  the business meeting around 1 PM.   
Thanks to all those who deliver Meals on Wheels. Your help is much appreciated. Here is our next schedule.

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
