Lutheran Women in Mission (LWM) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, LWM has “affirmed each woman’s identity as a child of God and her relationship with Jesus Christ.” Lutheran Women in Mission are encouraged and equipped to live out their lives in active mission ministries and to support missions around the world through their sacrificial gifts of Mite Box offerings and tireless service. Saint John’s Mission Guild is our congregation’s LWM group.
Our activities through the year include Bible studies, business meetings, a summer “picnic” in June, a “lunch out” in August, our special Fall event, Red Stocking donations, a Christmas party and a Secret Sisters program. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month, except July, at 10:30 AM in Room 301. We learn and pray together with Bible studies and devotions.
Offerings are collected monthly through our Mite Boxes for the Rocky Mountain District and National mission grants, projects and program expenses. We also bring free-will offerings for Mission Guild’s outreach and expenses.
Workshops, rallies and conventions are held yearly through the Rocky Mountain District and National Lutheran Women in Mission organizations. We also subscribe to two LWM publications: “Lutheran Women’s Quarterly” and “Tidings”.
LWM Sunday is celebrated the second Sunday in October. Along with special references to our organization, a list of the Rocky Mountain District and National mission grants are included in the service folder.
This year LWM is celebrating eighty years of mission funding and service throughout the world. Since 1942, over 1,100 gifts and grants totaling over $125 million have been distributed through the Rocky Mountain District and National mission projects. That’s God’s power in action!
We welcome any women of the congregation to join our group, to “serve the Lord with gladness”. For more information on Mission Guild, please contact LeOra Spence or check out the bulletin board across from the office.
