Donate your gently used eyeglasses

The LWML invites you to donate your gently used eyeglasses to benefit MOST Ministries, one of this year's LWML National Convention 'Gifts from the Heart' recipients.

MOST Ministries provides recycled eyeglasses to people living in the developing nations around the world. The cost of a pair of glasses in many developing nations can exceed a month's salary. Without assistance from MOST Ministries, hundreds of thousands of people would go without the glasses they need to work, read, or attend school. MOST Ministries often provides the only pair of eyeglasses a person will ever own.

Gently used adult-sized glasses, child-sized glasses and non-prescription sunglasses will be brought to the LWML National Convention (Milwaukee, WI.) this June by ORELC members. NO EYE CASES PLEASE. A collection basket is in the narthex sitting area thru June 11.

For those wishing to make a monetary gift, please make checks out to: MOST Ministries. Direct questions to Nancy Stinnett.  Thank you for your support!


Our Redeemer's LWML Society has opened its own bank account for easier accounting purposes and will provide year-end statements for members who desire a receipt for tax purposes.

Your check donations can be made payable to “LWML-NED-Our Redeemer.

Please place your MITE offerings in the LWML basket beneath the member mailboxes or give them to Kristin Jager or Nancy Stinnett.

Thank you for supporting LWML Mission Projects!

SAVE THE DATE: 2024 LWML NED Convention


Congratulations to Nancy Stinnett, who has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the LWML-New England District. She will serve as the LWML-NED Vice President of Special Focus Ministries, which includes the Human Care Committee, Young Women Committee, and Heart to Heart Sisters Committee.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10).

50 years of the LWML New England District

We are called to Love, Encourage, serve and Glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Together everyone accomplishes more as we are Sisters in Christ, teamed in missions, actively praying, and serving because we are Redeemed by HIS loving grace.

May we continue our mission work with the blessings of God.

LWML Mite Boxes

Based on the Biblical account of the widow's mite (Mark 12:41-43), the Mite Box is intended for regular contributions of "mites" — offerings above and beyond the support given to the congregation and the Synod. Mite Box contributions amount to millions of dollars that fund district and national mission grants.

The LWML has collected over 127 million dollars since 1942. These coins have, and will, continue to make a difference. Thank you for contributing to the Mite Box and providing the opportunity for us to spread the Gospel to the world. Please write your name on your Mite Box before you place it in the "MITE BOX" basket in the narthex. Thank you.

The mission of  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. Give All Thanks and Praise to God!
