null        Mighty Mites

Mission grants: At the heart of the LWML is its focus on missions. Each biennium, a mission grant goal is set by the voting assembly. The goal is funded by supporters through monetary gifts place into LWML Mite Boxes as a thank offering to God and with a prayer for worldwide missions. Contributions collected by local societies, or at zone or district events, are sent to the district treasurer. The monies are divided 75% for the district mission goal and 25% for the LWML mission goal. In its first 65 years, over $85 million have been given to support missions all over the world.  The Mite Box is based on the Biblical account of the widow's mite (Luke 21:1-4) and is intended for regular contibutions of "mites" (loose change) -- offerings above and beyond the support given to the congregation and the LCMS.


Our Society

Shepherd of the Hill's LWML society meets on the 2nd Saturday of the month from September to May at 10:00 AM. All women are invited to attend the meetings and special events. The emphasis is learning, growth and service. During our December meeting we will have a cookie exchange and reveal our secret prayer sisters. We make cards and package personal care items for Prescott Manor, an elder care facility. Monies received outside of the Mite Boxes (see above) are directed to local charities over the course of the year.

In fervent gratitude for the Savior's dying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us. We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for Him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His Kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him. Amen.
