LWML - aka Lutheran Women in Mission
With an active membership of over 250,000, the LWML is the official women's organization of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For over 60 years, the LWML has focused on a combination of fellowship and ministry in order to affirm each member in her relationship in Christ, her relationship with her sisters in Christ, and her ties to the world at large.
At Our Redeemer, the group has gained strength each year, and its officers have consistently supported and planned a diverse and ambitious agenda. The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall, from September through April, unless otherwise noted.
The LWML sponsors a variety of activities and missions throughout the year, that reaches out to the Church, as well as local and international communities. Events range from pure fellowship to ministries across the globe, keeping at its focus Christ's love and a desire to share this love with others.
Please join us for any of our meetings or events. It's a great way to serve the Lord and get to know your Christian sisters!

LWML Cutting Guidelines
Postage Stamps Cut the stamps from the envelopes with a margin of no less than 1/4 inch around the perforation of the stamp. The entire perforation needs to be intact; this provides a “handling area” for the collector. (Trimmed too closely the stamp may be damaged and become worthless - please do not turn these in.)
Box Tops for Education Please check the expiration Date. Box Tops submitted after their printed expiration date are considered void and will not be honored. The entire stamp needs to be intact – no torn corners are accepted.
*** Both of these items should be placed in the nook where there are marked containers for them.***
