Lutheran Women’s Missionary League
first Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm
LWML is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. LWML meets the first Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. We usually have a Bible Study and/or a work session in addition to a short business meeting. The work session could include packing Personal Care Kits and School Kits which along with quilts are sent to Lutheran World Relief. Also, Bibles are marked for the local Prison Ministry, packing and delivering hats, mittens, etc. from the Mitten Tree, and delivering canned goods to a local charity, H.O.T.E.L., I.N.C.
For those interested in tying quilts, that group meets the third Tuesday of the month at 1:00 PM. We also have Crafters for Christ which meets the second & third Saturdays of each month at 10:00 AM. This group works on various crafts to prepare for the annual Holiday Bazaar held each November. The Holiday Bazaar and bake sales are held as fund raisers. We also enjoy Christmas Luncheons and Prayer Teas.
A major emphasis for LWML is the support of mission and ministry throughout the world by means of mite box offerings. Mites are gathered on the 5th Sunday of a month. These mite box offerings have funded tens of millions of dollars in Mission Grants since the organizations inception in 1942.
The LWML encourages women to seek out and serve the needs of the people in their community and the world, to provide materials which enable women to grow spiritually, to encourage and equip them to reach out in love as they meet the opportunities and challenges for mission service projects, and to grow in agape love as fellowship is shared.
