LWMLThe Lutheran Women’s Missionary League
T he Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. For more than 75 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 supporting global missions.
LWML Mission Statement: As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
LWML Vision Statement: The LWML is the leading group for LCMS women where each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God-given gifts as she supports global missions and serves the Lord with gladness.
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is one of the many mission outreaches of Trinity Lutheran Church. We sponsor a variety of activities every year to help raise funds for missions locally, nationally, and globally. Meetings are held from September through May on the third Tuesday of the month from 7 – 9 pm. The program for the meeting is announced in advance, and all women are welcome to attend any or all of the meetings.
Recent and ongoing LWML activities and programs at Trinity include:
- Mite Boxes are our most important and impactful program, helping to fund local, national and global missionary projects. Mite Boxes are distributed in October on LWML Sunday and are collected throughout the year.
- Baby quilts and Layette Kits are sewn and distributed through Lutheran Social Services’ New Life Center in Uniondale and the Christian Appalachian Project in Kentucky.
- Food Drives are held several times each year to distribute canned food, fresh fruit and vegetables to the needy within our church and community.
- Hospice Kits are gathered, packaged and sent to health ministries.
At least 4 fundraisers are held each year, including our annual Garage and Bake Sales. 100% of the money collected supports ministries in the Church, community, national and global mission projects.
