Prayer for Mites

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.

More about LWML Mites

Automated Giving

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 society'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.

Memorial and Honorarium

Wish to honor a special person or remember a loved one? All memorial and honorarium mite offerings are designated to stay with the district. The offerings designated to either the Mission Inreach or Scholarship Endowments are deposited into the respective fund. Memorial and honorarium cards and envelopes are available from the Financial Secretary.
