Lutheran Women in Mission

All women in the church make up Lutheran Women in Mission (formerly known as LWML – Lutheran Women’s Missionary League). Whether you attend one meeting or all of them, you are an important part of our community of Lutheran Women!

MEETINGS

Lutheran Women in Mission meets the 2nd Saturday of the month at 8:30 am in the Fellowship Hall.  Breakfast is always served. We welcome guest speakers and special events throughout the year. All women are welcome to join us!

 

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

Through mite box gifts, mission 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.

Locally, we use the money raised at the Spring yard sale, Christmas bazaar and the LWML resource center to give to many worthy projects locally and beyond. We have given money to Camp Hope, Angel Tree, missionaries who live all around the world, and community projects nominated by our members.

Through it all, women have been spiritually enriched, and the Lord’s cause has been advanced.  The Mission Grants passed at the last national LWML convention for the 2013-2015 bi-ennium is $1,830,000 for 18 grants. 

The total passed at the Washington-Alaska District LWML  convention for the 2014-2016 biennium is $89,000 for 15 Mission Grants.

  

We look forward to welcoming you to our meetings each month!
