LWML of Peace
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For over 65 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
The mission of the 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.
All women of Peace Lutheran Church are eligible to join LWML. The objective and purpose is to serve the Lord in the church and the home; to support missionary work in countries much less fortunate than ours; to foster Christian love, fellowship and social ability; to assist carrying out the programs of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church and to cooperate with the aims and programs of the LWML of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod; and promote systematic study of the Bible and to encourage growth in the Christian knowledge. Currently we are sponsoring two missionaries in foreign countries. We also host various events such as weddings and funerals, assist Luther Park with some of their activities, support World Relief with our school kits, make and plan kits for our shut-ins or persons who are in assisted living or nursing homes. We also have some fun while doing items listed above; the month of June is our outing at one of Des Moines finest restaurant and in December, we have our Christmas party which is always a fun get together. Come join us and help spread the Word of God with those near and afar for a very rewarding experience.
LWML Women’s Missionary League (L.W.M.L.) meets the second Thursday of each month. ALL women of the congregation are invited! Please join us as we joyfully serve our Lord.
