Please join LWML for a meeting and Bible study Monday, January 16. We will meet at 7 p.m. in the Lower Level of First Trinity. All are welcome!
Light refreshments will be served along with our Bible study and discussion on how we can serve the Lord with gladness this year.
Your Mite Box donations can be brought to the meeting or placed in LWML bin in hallway (across from the main office).
For those who are unfamiliar with LWML:
We are an official auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
For those who are unfamiliar with Mite Boxes:
Based on the Biblical account of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1–4), the Mite Box is intended for regular contributions of “mites” — offerings above and beyond the support given to congregations and the LCMS. Mite Box contributions amount to millions of dollars that fund district and national mission grants and implement the LWML program.
Perhaps inspired by the various “cent” or “mite” societies of the early 1800s, the Woman’s Mission to Woman (Baptist) urged members in its first circular letter in 1871 to use their new Mite Box to raise funds. The entire family was encouraged to contribute. The garnet-colored paper box had an opening on the top and the words, “Woman’s Mission to Woman,” in gold letters on the side.
