Welcome - LWML CNH - Lutheran Women in Mission

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.  2 Corinthians 9:15

In October 2013, over 70 leaders from across the United States met to establish goals and develop work plans for the 2013-2015 biennium of the LWML. These leaders form the various committees, task forces, and teams of the LWML. They addressed the needs of the organization and supported the organization through the development of programs, materials, and products. The work is guided by three Primary Targets adopted by the LWML Board of Directors, which include:

Nurturing Faith in Christ – We are committed to helping every woman find personal opportunities in her daily life and in her congregation to be nurtured in faith in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to discover her unique gifts and value in God’s family.

Making Our Mission Meaningful – We challenge and equip women of all ages, stages, ethnicities, and experiences to make a meaningful difference in the loves of hurting, helpless, and unbelieving people at home and throughout the world.

Sharing Encouragement – We believe that women value the friendship, support, and encouragement from other women and strive to offer warm, welcoming opportunities for women to grow in faith and relationships as sisters in Christ.

The societies and zones of the LWML CNH District are encouraged to incorporate these targets and goals in their planning.

With praise and thanksgiving to God:

  • The many exciting Mission Grant proposals that have been submitted
  • 2012-2014 Mission Grants already funded – only 3 left to be funded before March 30
  • The many societies who were part of the district PING presentations – leadership ideas, inspirational thoughts about leadership and ways to serve, and activities that can be tailored  by societies to reflect the mission and joy of LWML
  • Willing leaders and committees  preparing for the May 2-4, 2014 LWML CNH Convention
  • Women willing to serve in elected positions – many thanks to the Nominating Committee
  • The opportunity for worship, fellowship and serving through the many fall rallies, in our congregations, the Ferndale Event and the Fall Retreat in San Juan Bautista
  • For the gift of family and friends

Each of us is the “Face of LWML” as we are participants in the many opportunities to use our gifts to impact the world for Christ in our daily lives.

Marcia Houseworth, LWML CNH President

God is good and so faithful to us in the LWML CNH District.  Let us return that faith 10 fold in the support of all of our Grant Projects.

Remember 25% of our Mites go to LWML to help fund the mission work of our national organization.   Continue to send your Mites in each month especially doubling your effort at this time to help with our national mission goal that is now running behind.   Go to the LWML website to see the list of mission grants for this biennium.
