NO REGISTRATION NEEDED! Link to view the convention and password will be HERE on day of the convention. A test link to make sure your equipment works will be available soon.
Make plans to host a watch party and gather early. Allison will begin the convention with singing by 9:20 a.m.
In an ever-changing world, we reaffirm our hope is anchored in Christ. Convention attendees will:
Rest in God’s Word;
Recharge in worship; be
Re-energized to share our hope in Christ with others
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:19-20).
Your offering will assist with expenses associated with this convention. Thank you.

Proposed Amendment #1 is to conform to LWML structure by replacing the term society with group. Rationale: to recognize flexibility in the naming of local organizations such as circles, guilds, and societies and recognize all as groups of Lutheran Women in Mission.
Proposed Amendments #2–#5 are to conform to LWML structure by establishing a Mission Service Committee under the Gospel Outreach Department and removing the office of Vice President of Human Care, thereby emphasizing that mission service activities are an outgrowth of Gospel Outreach. Amendment #3 allows for the election of the same number of officers at each biennium.
Proposed Amendment #6 is to conform to LWML bylaws by changing the name “LWML Board of Directors” to “LWML Presidents Assembly” and allowing a substitute to attend a Presidents Assembly meeting or LWML convention as the district’s representative with voice and vote.
Proposed Amendments #7 and #8 are to conform to current practices for conducting financial reviews.
Proposed Amendments #9 and #10 provide flexibility in distributing a slate of candidates for election and proposed mission grants prior to the District LWML convention.
