Church Workers in Mission

A great way for LWML to let church workers know their value is to make them feel welcomed when arriving in your district, zone, or church. Church workers also need to know they are appreciated after many years of service. There are many LWML prepared resources available at You can start by sharing the Church Workers in Mission brochure found on that page. 

Ideas for Pastor Support and Involvement
