Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10
Come join us! No matter what our situation or season in life, we all need discipleship, fellowship, encouragement and opportunities to serve. St. John’s Women’s Ministry has many options in all of those areas, and we are always open to new ideas!
The mission of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is to assist each woman of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.
Be a Missionary with your Mite Box
Each of you, giving and praying for our 18 Mission Grants, brings the Mission Goal of $1.83 million for the 2013-2015 biennium closer and brings the hope of Jesus to others. Check for mission grant updates and more information on each grant at http://www.lwml.org/missions/mission-grants/
Please help yourself to a Mite Box from the Narthex on Sunday, fill it with coins/check or bills and return the first Sunday on the month to further God’s work through the LWML. Every cent donated goes directly to missions, none kept locally.
