The mission of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League
As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
Continue to stay strong in His Word, encourage one another, help each other as you can, pray with one another - living each day serving your Lord and Saviour in (JOY and) GLADNESS!
2021-2023 LWML Mission Goal:
$2,150,000 to fund 28 Mission Projects!
First project to be funded: Deaconess Ministry Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch $81,680
The KS Mite Box update - next to be paid - # KS District LCMS Retreat Center Herington, KS $8,500.
Your MITES helped make this happen.
PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW!
WE are HIS!
Our theme WE are HIS will be shared with the ladies of Trinity.
How can we help them in their faith walk, encourage them, be a buddy or a mentor, find ways to involve them in Church life? Look beyond what we have done in the past to endeavor to keep LWML alive in the hearts of all our sisters.
The survey is available here , in the Vineyard, and on the credenza. Once completed, please put in the LWML box on the credenza or leave in the church office.
Prayerfully consider volunteering for at least one of the Committees. These Committees will be a vital part in reaching out to all women of Trinity.
Your comments, ideas, etc are so very much appreciated!
