LWML - Who We Are…
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For over 65 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
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.
2015 - 2017 Primary Targets
Nurturing Faith in Christ. We are committed to helping every woman find personal opportunities in her daily life and in her congregation to be nurtured in faith in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to discover her unique gifts and value in God's family.
Making Our Mission Meaningful. We challenge and equip women of all ages, stages, ethnicities, and experiences to make a meaningful difference in the lives of hurting, helpless, and unbelieving people at home and throughout the world.
Sharing Encouragement. We believe that women value the friendship, support, and encouragement from other women and strive to offer warm, welcoming opportunities for women to grow in faith and relationships as sisters in Christ.

A Secret Sister is a terrific thing!
Secret Sisters pray for you, send you cards to say “Hi, I’m thinking about you and praying for you!” and generally can be your own personal cheerleader…
except you don’t know WHO THEY ARE!
Sign up and revealing of Secret Sisters is in October. Usually a small gift is given to reveal yourself to your Secret Sister.
