2020-2022 Mite Goal
Total Mites Still Needed
Return your filled Mite Box to your LWML group, who will mail the mites to the LWML Texas District Financial Secretary, Kathy Walther. Be sure to include a remittance form or individual member remittance form with your mailing.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for giving me all that I have. Bless these mites that I give back to you so that they can be used to spread the Good News of Jesus' love here and throughout the world. Amen.
Mite Boxes are used to collect money for missions.
25% of the mite offering is sent to the national LWML for national mission grants, and the remaining 75% is used for LWML Texas District mission grants and mission goal (includes inreach work program).
Mite money is used to further God's kingdom through the mission grants selected by delegates at district and national conventions.
Place your Mite Box wherever you can feed it: dressing table, office desk, laundry room, car, kitchen counter, etc. You might want to give a Mite Box to family members and friends.
JoyfulResponse® is a service provided by the Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF). JoyfulResponse® provides both members and supporters an electronic automated mite offering resource. Offering amount and frequency is specified by the supporter. A supporter is not required to be an LCEC investor. The offerings of members will be included in their group's contribution total. For those who are unable to attend meetings regularly or at all, JoyfulResponse® provides a means of giving regularly and consistently. Please contact the Financial Secretary for the necessary forms.
Wish to honor a special person or remember a loved one? All memorial and honorarium mite offerings are designated to stay with the district.
