What is LWML - Lutheran Women in Mission?


Mission: 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.


LWML is a national organization—the official women’s auxiliary of the LCMS—and is organized into districts, then into zones consisting of Women in Mission from congregations in a geographic area. They meet in convention every two years; the 2021 national convention was in Lexington, Kentucky.


Faith’s LWML is part of the Kansas District and is a member of the Topeka Zone. Mission projects are adopted after being submitted by members and voted on by member delegates from all areas. They meet in a zone convention once a year.

  • Worship — We experience a personal relationship with Christ and Christian unity with LWML members across the state and across the nation through  Bible study, individual and corporate prayer, fellowship and service.

  • Education — We enjoy Bible study within each Circle and share devotions at LWML General Assemblies.

  • Service — We provide service to members of our own church and community through prayer and actions as well as to people worldwide through our mites and support of Lutheran World Relief.

  • Fellowship — We enjoy Christian fellowship within our circles, our General Assemblies, our Topeka Zone Rallies, our Kansas District Conventions and our National LWML conventions.

  • Outreach — We reach out to all people to share the love our Lord has given each of us.

Mite Offerings

Loose change offerings are collected on 1st Sunday of the month in a large Mite box in our church lobby. These offerings go toward many mission grants around the world. The 2021-23 national goal is $2,150,000. Learn more here.

A mite challenge calendar is a resource designed to focus daily on LWML Gospel Outreach. It includes a suggested mite donation, but that is mainly to remind the user that even little amounts can make a big impact when coupled with prayer, mission service, a Bible verse, a song, or recognition and praise for what God is providing in your life.

The mite challenge calendar changes monthly:   November 2021   December 2021
