Some Basic Facts of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League
It has as its "mission heart" thousands of volunteers who are daily dedicating their lives to making a difference in this world.
"Lutheran Women in Mission" describes in spoken and written form who we are and what we do.
It is women who are finding avenues to use their God-given talents as they meet the challenges to share the Gospel message.
It is composed of individual women and women's groups within the congregations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, on campuses, in resident homes, or in other settings.
Individual membership is available to women in LCMS congregations with or without a society affiliated with the LWML. Women may have an interest in the mission and ministry of LWML - and wish to be a part of the organization; but cannot, for a variety of reasons belong to a local group.
The LWML seeks to develop and maintain a greater mission consciousness among women of the LCMS through education, inspiration, and service.
A major emphasis is the support of mission and ministry throughout the world by means of mite box offerings. These mite box offerings have funded tens of millions of dollars in mission grants since the organization's inception in 1942.
