Lutheran Women's Missionary League
If you are a woman and a member of a Lutheran Church, you are a member of LWML. We at St Matthew are reorganizing our LWML to better serve a greater variety of ladies and provide more opportunities for mission. We have elected to have a St. Matthew LWML Society that will be the umbrella organization for any circles present or future.
At the Convention in Albuquerque, LWML will make a commitment to fund a new Mission Grant Goal for the 2017-2019 biennium. There are 34 different grants written and posted on the LWML website. Please read through these grants and choose 8 that you like to be included in that goal. You will find a list of these grants in your mailbox at church. Please mark the grants of your choice and put the list in Marilyn Stelljes' or JoAnn Davis' mailbox by May 31. All other convention resources can be found here.
Congratulation to your new Society Officers: Jean Stubbs, President; Marilyn Stelljes, Vice President; Karen Mitchell, Secretary; and Bonnie Stair, Treasurer. The terms begin on July 1 with the president and treasurer position for 2 years and the vice president and secretary for 1 year. Our first society meeting will be in August. Watch for more information.
