The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is Gloria Dei's official women’s auxiliary organization. It is a ministry of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod based in St. Louis and recently celebrated its 80th anniversary of serving our Lord and Savior. There are over 250,000 ACTIVE women who dedicate their talent and time to this organization.

The objectives of the LWML are:

Mission Inspiration: Women are inspired by the Word to fulfill the Lord’s command to go ...and teach all nations...

Mission Education: Women are alerted to opportunities and equipped to serve the Lord whenever and wherever He has need of us.

Mission Service: Women help the needy through Servant Events, in their communities through the LWML and through their congregations.

Mission Grants: Women support various mission grants in sharing the Gospel with others in our district, our nation, and around the word.

THE MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.

OUR MOTTO: Serve the Lord with Gladness (Psalm 100:2)

OUR COLORS: Purple and Gold

OUR MAGAZINES: The Quarterly (national) and The Evangel (district)

MITE BOXES: LWML MISSION GRANTS are funded through volunteer contributions. Each supporter of the LWML places coins (mites) into an LWML MITE BOX AS A THANK OFFERING TO God and with a prayer for our world-wide missions. Contributions are collected locally and sent to the LWML FL/GA District. Monies are divided with 75% for the FL/GA District and 25% is sent in to be applied to the LWML national mission goals. Over $1,850,000 will be collected over the next two years through our loose change and mites for mission grants in the United States as well all over the world.

Scholarship funds are also available to LCMS students who enter the Concordia educational system to become pastors, teachers, DECs, etc.

A Breakfast and Bible Study is held in the chapel the first and the third Saturday of each month, with breakfast 9:00am followed by the Bible Study . The studies vary, but are based on those found in the LWML Quarterly. We are usually out by 11:00-11:30. The breakfast is cared for by a team of two volunteers and a third volunteer does the Bible Study. You certainly are invited to join us simply by being there at 9:00 am. You will indeed be glad that you did.

For more information, check out the national website www.lwml.org . There are many resources available to you on this site  You can also link on to the FL/GA District website at www.flgalwml.com.

Please check out the PURPLE TABLE in the Fellowship Hallway. You will find an assortment of Mustard Seeds devotionals, the Quarterly as well as the current Evangel among some of the resources available for you to take and use.

God Bless each and every one of you. We hope that you will indeed "SERVE THE LORD WITH GLADNESS"!

No matter what the circumstances, grief recovery is a painful process. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or a friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. There is help available through GriefShare.

 

GriefShare Groups start with our Orientation  in the Chapel, and  meet each Saturday. New participants are asked to come in at 11:30 a.m. to register, become acquainted with the workbook, etc. There is a $25.00 registration fee which covers the cost of the accompanying GriefShare participant’s workbook, resource manual and “Tool Box”.  Past participants, we look forward to you returning for this cycle…just bring your workbook, resource manual and Tool Box.

 

If you have lost someone recently, or one year ago, or years ago, and still feel empty and hurting, please consider this your invitation to join us. Or do you know someone who could benefit from GriefShare? .  Questions??? Call the Church office, 954-475-0683, Linda Malone 954-270-3321.
