LUTHERAN MISSOURI SYNOD
The Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) is an international organization organized by "societies" within local congregations. The primary purpose of the LWML is to assist in the great work of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ into the world. To this end, the LWML works to educate, strengthen, and motivate women of all ages both in Gospel outreach and faith-sharing, as well as preparing future leaders.
The LWML funds its mission projects through the MiteBox and thank offerings. The Mite Box is based on the story of the widow's mite in Luke 21:1 - 4 where it is recorded that "she gave everything she had."
Members often place pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and even more in their Mite Box each day. Together with the thank offerings, tens of millions of dollars have been given as mission grants since 1942.
Our local society meets at the church on the second Thursday of each month.
