The LWML is the leading group for LCMS women where each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God-given gifts
as she supports global missions and serves the Lord with gladness.
LWML is organized into districts, then into zones consisting of Women in Mission from congregations in a geographic area. They meet biannually at the 2023 National Convention in Milwaukee WI, June 22-25. Faith’s LWML is part of the Kansas District and is a member of the Topeka Zone. The district meets yearly, which was April 22-24, 2022 in Overland Park.

We experience a personal relationship with Christ and Christian unity through Bible study, individual and corporate prayer, fellowship and service.
We enjoy Bible study within each Circle and share devotions at General Assemblies.
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 by making hand-tied quilts distributed through Orphan Grain Train. Quilters usually meet the 2nd & 4th Monday, 9a-12p, in the church parlor (Rm 100).
We enjoy Christian fellowship within our Circles, General Assemblies, Topeka Zone Rallies, Kansas District and national conventions.
We reach out to all people to share the love our Lord has given each of us.
Loose change offerings are collected on the first 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. Learn more here.
