 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

Unfortunately, the market for stamps has really dried up. Places will take stamps, but for approximately 20 pounds of stamps, the payment is $1-2.   If you know of any new plac...
