If you have not signed up to be a hostess at one of our meetings, please sign up at this meeting.
We are also in need of a greeter for our meetings. This would require arriving about ½ hour before the start of the meeting, setting up the greeter table, and be on hand to assist members and newcomers.
If you would like further information on any of these events,
please feel free to contact President – Kathy Arnold
Some of you may not know about our Caring Card ministry.
Perhaps you’ve received a card from LWML, but don’t know who sent it.
Our Caring Card ministry is headed by Nancy Aldrich, and is active all year –
even when she’s away from Green Valley in the summer.
Whenever we hear of a woman member who needs to know she is
on our minds and in our prayers, Nancy sends that greeting.
We thank her for this expression of Christian love and sharing.
Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML),
is the official auxiliary for women of the Lutheran Church-English District, Missouri Synod.
The LWML encourages women to seek and to serve the needs of the people in our community and beyond, to provide material which enable women to grow spiritually, that they may reach out in love as they experience the opportunities, and also the challenges, for mission service and mission projects. We invite the women of Risen Savior to join us.
We meet on the third Tuesday of the months of October through April, except for December, when we meet on the second Tuesday. An appropriate program is planned for each month along with a dessert and a short business meeting.
Meetings start at 1:00PM. The December and March are potluck meetings beginning at 12:30PM.
Our society and other societies in southern Arizona form the Arizona Zone of Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
The Arizona Zone is part of the English District of LWML and it is non-geographical.
LWML has two informative publications:
The Quarterly is a national publication, available 4 times a year, and the English District LWML Accent, published 3 times a year. We place these in the racks in the narthex and have them available at our meetings.
Mite Box giving is an important part of LWML and the story of the widow’s mite (Mark 12:41-43) serves as our model. We use individual mite boxes to place our offerings into, thanking God for His daily blessings. These Mite Box offerings are used for mission projects at our local level, but also for Az. Zone, English District and National levels of LWML. Your mite offerings also support local, district and national mission grants. During the last 71 years, LWML had contributed over $100 million to missions of the LCMS, and with God’s help and YOUR help, we will contribute $7 million dollars this biennium. Our Mite Box offerings are part of our meetings in October, January, and April.
Sisters in Christ, LWML is YOUR organization. Plan to participate!
