LWML Update!

WHAT’S BEEN UP…JANUARY TO JUNE 2019!
Ladies, did you know … that all women in our congregation are automatically LWM Members? TAKE A SECOND LOOK at our national organization that was established and supported by our Missouri Synod to ‘give service’ not only to our church as its women’s auxiliary, but to help support those who are in need! Not only do we ‘give support’ to our Lutheran Missions abroad, we ‘get involved’ and try to ‘make a difference’ in small ways towards ‘serving’ our Community in our own backyard; reaching out!

WANT TO ‘SERVE GOD’ AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE? The degree of your 

involvement to serve is entirely up to you. You may join us in the Fellowship Hall, every second Tuesday of each month. (Jan. thru June and Sept. thru Dec.), 9:30am-11am for a brief business meeting, followed by inspiring programs/speakers, service projects and fun while enjoying fellowship with your ‘Sisters in Christ’! Projects or programs generally begin @ 10:30 am if you are not interested in the business part of the meeting. Join us!
