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 next National Convention is June 20-23, 2019 in Mobile, Alabama.
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.

Service Projects and Mite Offerings
Members of LWML sew and donate hand-tied quilts to Lutheran World Relief. Join them on the 2nd & 4th Monday of the month from 9am-2pm in the church Parlor (Room 100). Bring a sack lunch if staying through the lunch hour. Donations of large material scraps are always welcome.
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 2017-2019 national goal for Mite collections is $2,075,000.
