What is LWML?

LWML is the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League; it is an organization of women within the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod whose primary purpose is to support mission work locally, nationally, and internationally.

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 may use her gifts in ministry to the people of God.

Who may belong to LWML?

All women who are members of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod are
automatically members of the LWML. Within a local congregation such as Holy
Cross, women choose to become active members, attending monthly meetings, or
inactive members.

What does the LWML do?

The LWML raises funds in a variety of ways to support local, national, and
international missions. The LWML is also active in supporting the local
congregation. Here at Holy Cross, the LWML maintains an active Altar Guild,
collects food and clothing for those in need, maintains a working prayer chain,
and is always ready to meet whatever needs arise within the congregation if it
is within their power to do so.

At Holy Cross Lutheran Church, the LWML meets every second Monday, at 7:00
p.m. in the church fellowship hall.
