I send greetings to you, dear sisters in Christ!

The LWML MN North District 2020 Convention will be held June 22-24th at the Timberlake Lodge Hotel and Event Center in Grand Rapids, MN. The Bible verse chosen for this convention is Joshua 1:9b – For the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Our theme will be "Drawn to the Cross". Arrowhead I Region is looking forward to hosting this event.

My prayer is that our LWML MN North District Website will encourage you and give you some ideas to reach out to the women in your congregation. May our good and gracious God show you the way to help them become more aware of the mission field that is around us in our daily lives.

I would like to let you know about a few other helps and programs that are available to you from LWML:

Heart to Heart Sisters

The Heart to Heart Sisters program motivates, equips, and provides opportunities for multi-cultural women to serve the Church, participate in the LWML, witness to the world, and grow together in relationships as sisters in Christ. This program is not designed to be an outreach program, but a means to make all sisters feel included and a vital part of the LWML.

The LWML MN North District would love to find and train a woman for this position. For more information visit https://www.lwml.org/heart-to-heart-sisters

Gifts of Love

Most Christians don't have a charitable plan for when the Lord calls them to heaven and may be unsure where to start. LWML Gift Planning Counselors can help you put your wishes on paper to care for your family and impact ministry. LWML offers free, professional assistance you can trust. You will have joy and peace of mind knowing your instructions will be carried out. Contact an LWML Gift Planning Counselor to learn more! Visit www.lwmlgiftplan.org.

Download the Strategic Planning PDF. It can be found at LWML.org under the "About" tab, then "Who We Are".

Drawn to the Cross,

LWML Handbook

LWML Handbook Information to Share:

"Societies and individual members are the foundation upon which the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is built. The entire LWML program begins with participants at the congregational level."


A woman's involvement in LWML usually begins through the local organization. Local groups

  • help each woman draw closer to the Lord
  • encourage and equip women to use their God-given talents in sharing God's love, and
  • provide opportunities for service within the congregation and for outreach to the community and world. (LWML Handbook 2017)
