40th Biennial Convention - LWML Texas District July 5-8, 2018 - Waco Convention Center
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, "Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" John 7:38 ESV.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with mission and ministry on the beautiful Brazos River! The Waco Convention Center has been spruced up with beautiful new spaces; restaurants and food trucks abound.
Author Donna Pyle will present a brand new Bible study prepared for the convention. Texas District LCMS President Ken Hennings will serve as the Proclaimer for the opening worship service. Wendysue Fluegge will be the song leader for the convention and entertain us with a program on Saturday evening.
And there is more than just meeting, singing, Bible study, and servant events! Come early on July 5 to visit with ministry exhibits, bring your Gifts from the Heart to be distributed to agencies in the Waco area, and just enjoy the beauty of Central Texas!
Rev. Ken Hennings
