LWML Eyewear Collection

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE MANY, MANY DONATIONS OF gently used eyeglasses and sunglasses to be donated through the nonprofit  “New Eyes For the Needy.”

The project has concluded for 2021.

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!
