75 Big Ideas to celebrate 75 years of the LWML!!

The Time is NOW is an initiative to help the LWML refocus on our basic common core values: being in God’s Word, missions, service, and fellowship. It is imperative, even urgent, that women share with other women the contagious joy that results from participating in the LWML. The Time is NOW to look to the future of the LWML!

     These BIG Ideas shared by members of the LWML Board of Directors, show how this initiative could be shared throughout our LWML. The challenge is to try to use these 75 BIG Ideas before the 2017 LWML Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, when the LWML will celebrate its 75th Anniversary!

     Begin to think “outside the box” and be creative. Share at least one BIG Idea with a sister in Christ today!

The list can be downloaded from the LWML website on The Time is NOW page: www.lwml.org/now. Please share this important information with your districts. Thanks again.

May God bless your sharing of these BIG Ideas!

The LWML Leaders Manual and the LWML Handbook

The LWML Leaders Manual and the LWML Handbook are now posted on our website, www.lwml.org!

Totally revised, the 2015 LWML Leaders Manual details the responsibilities and duties of our LWML leadership, which is helpful for those who are elected or appointed to serve; it’s also useful for those who wish to be considered for an LWML committee appointment and need to know the scope of each position.

The 2015 LWML Handbook, also totally revised, is the resource that describes each part of the LWML … local groups, zones, district, and national … and how they fit together into one cohesive unit. Included is the function and purpose of each part, definitions of LWML words, sample bylaws, a map of district and regional borders, a listing of all mission grants since 1943, Mite Box devotions, installation services, and LWML songs.

Both resources are offered as free downloads from the website; they are no longer available for purchase through the LWML Store. You may print as many copies as you wish or send them as attachments via email. Many districts supply a copy of each document to every member of their board of directors.

The time is NOW to read, study, and share these basic LWML resources! As the LWML continues to grow, both documents will periodically be refreshed to reflect new ways to serve the Lord through the LWML. What will not change is our commitment to serving the Lord with gladness and support of missions!

LWML President Kay Kreklau Honored

Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) President Kay Kreklau was pleasantly surprised at The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s (LCMS) Board of International Missions meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, May 29, 2015.  LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison presented Kay with a certificate of appreciation surrounded by messages from the staff and board members.

The LWML is an auxiliary of the LCMS with a primary focus on supporting missions. The LCMS Board for International Missions took this opportunity to show their appreciation for President Kay’s commitment and the work of all women of the LWML. Kreklau’s four-year term as LWML President concludes at the 36th LWML Biennial Convention in Des Moines, Iowa, June 25-28, 2015.
