History of Mount Olive LWML

The Mount Olive LWML received their charter from the Washington-Alaska District at their 1986 Conference. The LWML was created by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) in 1942.  It is very active in every district of the LCMS.

FUNDS AND MISSIONS

With the National LWML  mite box offerings, bequests and proceeds from resource sales the LWML has funded projects totaling many millions of dollars. These projects have touched the lives of people in many countries.

You can follow the national LWML on the web http://lwml.orgwww.lwml.org/online by subscribing to email, blog, podcasts and videos.

Through this effort, people have been spiritually enriched, and the Lord’s cause has been advanced. The Mission Grants passed and goal at the last national LWML convention for the 2021-2023 biennium is $2,150,000 for 28 grants.

Locally, we use the money raised at the annual yard sale, Christmas bazaar and the LWML Resource Center to give to many worthy projects locally and beyond. A few of the many organizations we have given money to is Camp Hope, Lutheran World Relief, Orphan Grain Train, missionaries who live all around the world, and community projects nominated by our members. We pray these gifts will be blessed and multiplied in the Lord’s work.

The total passed at the Washington-Alaska District LWML convention for the 2022-2024 biennium is $75,000 for 13 Mission Grants.
