 LWML members are Lutheran Women in Mission

     Through the LWML, thousands of volunteers daily dedicate their lives to making a difference in this world. They prepare for this through prayer and interesting, encouraging Bible studies.

    The LWML helps women of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) find avenues to use their God-given talents as they joyfully share the Good News of Jesus Christ with people far and near.  

    One of LWML’s primary means for carrying this out is through mite offerings donated by each member. These moneys fund mission grants – for the national LWML and also the South Wisconsin District LWML. See the list of 2014-2016 recipients Mites collected to date; and 2014-2016 Grant Descriptions

Christian Life March Inspiration
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
The book of Genesis shares many facts about Noah and how he fulfilled God's direction for his life. But little information is given to us regarding Noah's wife. In fact, she is only referenced as "Noah's wife.” We are never told her name. Yet she played an important role as a woman in the Bible.   Put yourself in her shoes (or sandals) for a moment and imagine her reaction and thoughts to what her husband is about to share with her. Noah t...
