I'm New Here

Welcome to the LWML Texas District. If you are a new Lutheran, new to Texas, or have never participated in LWML, we hope you find the information below helpful.

Who is the LWML?

You are the LWML! Every woman who is a communicant member of an LCMS congregation is eligible to become a member of the LWML. All you need is a love for others, a desire to share the Gospel message, and a heart to serve. “Lutheran Women in Mission” describes who we are and what we do.

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is an official auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions. As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others. 

What does LWML Do?

Lutheran Women in Mission groups frequently gather for events and activities to provide fellowship, work together on service projects in the church or community, pray, worship, sing, and study the Word as sisters in Christ. Many Texas LWML groups also meet regularly to make quilts for relief organizations. Gatherings can be centered around local interests; business meetings can be held at separate times. Bible study, working on projects, listening to inspirational speakers, celebrating with luncheons, or going on day trips unite women in a common purpose and enable them to use their gifts and talents in the Lord’s service. They also provide witnessing opportunities to reach out to sisters who may not yet know Christ as Savior, or who are not involved in the life of the church or of the LWML. The time is now to reach out to our fellow sisters with God’s love!

How Do I Get Involved?

In your local group? Talk to members of your local LWML group, the president, or your pastor. Don't have a group? Consider beginning a new group or individual membership.

In the LWML Texas District? We are always looking for volunteers to help spread the enthusiasm of Lutheran Women in Mission and Serve the Lord with gladness! (Psalm 100:2). Contact our District President.
