Other Shared Projects:

Cradle Roll
All children baptized at Emmaus receive cradle roll material until age 3.  The curriculum used is Splash, supplied by Augsburg Publishing.  Diane Neet oversees this program that is paid for by the Women of Emmaus.

Quilting
Quilts are made for Lutheran World Relief, the Eugene Mission, as gifts to our high school seniors, and to sell at the annual Holiday Bazaar.  Material to make the quilts is donated and Women of Emmaus pay for the batting.  Jeanne Hubbard and Lori Nicklin oversee the quilting program.


 

Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCAPurpose 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.

Note:  It is a policy of the Women of the ELCA to include all women members of the congregation in its organization, so we encourage any woman interested to join a circle for Bible study, service, and fellowship!

If you are unable or choose not to attend monthly meetings you are still a member of the Women of Emmaus Lutheran Church (ELCW).  Please feel free to participate in any way that fits your lifestyle.
