Christ Lutheran’s unit of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is part of a nationwide organization that exists to develop and maintain mission consciousness among the women of the synod. The LWML is divided into districts and zones which select mission projects to support at their biennial conventions. Funds to support these mission projects are gained by the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters (mites) that are placed in Mite Boxes and collected several times a year here at church.

Our local unit operates in conjunction with the Ladies Aid Society, and meetings are held at the same time as the Ladies Aid Society meetings. Our zone holds an annual Spring Rally and a Fall Workshop in member churches to encourage and promote mission work and friendships among Lutheran women. There is always a need for new members interested in promoting missions and mission work.

The Ladies Aid Society holds bake sales periodically and helps to support a child through a Christian organization.

Meetings are held at 1:00 pm on the first Wednesdays  of April, August, October and December. All the ladies of the congregation are invited to join our group.

LWML MITES Give your pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters (mites) in the mite boxes for mission work through the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. These boxes will be collected during Lent and Holy Week in the large purple/white box in the narthex. A good Christian tradition is to take the money saved through Lenten fasting and give it to mission work.

L.W.M.L. The change (and dollar bills!) you place in a mite box during Lent will support the mission
work of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. Please feel free to take a purple packet with
information about the L.W.M.L. from the basket by the large mite collection box in the narthex.
Your support of this twice a year collection is greatly appreciated.
