LWML Mission Statement
As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Pledge
In fervent gratitude for the Savior’s dying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us. We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for Him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His Kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him. Amen.
The LWML supports the work of missionaries around the world, equipping them with the resources they need to proclaim Christ to all who are still in their sins, pointing them to their Savior.
Thanks be to God! All 28 mission grants for the National LWML 2021-2023 biennium have been paid in full. New National LWML mission grants will be voted on in June 2023 in Milwaukee, WI.
2022-2024 Pacific Southwest District Mission Grants, your mites go to support the following:
*Camperships to Camp ALOMA for low-income and disadvantaged kids.
*Scholarships for Church Workers in Crisis, Shepherd’s Canyon Retreat, Wickenburg, AZ
*And 15 other missions
Thanks to generous donors like yourself we have been able to fund 10 of our 17 District Mission Grants in less than 6 months. That doesn’t mean we are scaling back but will save any excess mite money for the 2024-2026 Biennium.
Speaking of the 2024-2026 Biennium, LWML Pacific Southwest District is accepting new mission grant proposals. The deadline to file a mission grant proposal is September 15, 2023. If you have any ideas for a mission grant, contact Susan and she will get you the paperwork. The mission must be within the Pacific Southwest District, and it must be used to spread the Gospel. Apostles has received two mission grants in the past. I challenge the Pastors, Church Council, Elders, and all committees to come up with a mission grant idea.
Next Mite Sunday – April 30, 2023
