The large Mite box is located in the lobby of the Christian Ministry Center to receive offerings from all in the congregation who feel led and are willing to support the ongoing project ministry of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League. If you don’t have a mite box, please take one from the LWML display and fill it with your change, “quiet money” is also accepted. When you are ready to bring the mites to church, please place them in an appropriate sized baggie (well sealed) and place in the large mite box. Our Lord Jesus will bless not only the gift that is given, but the giver as well!
An exciting new Bible study is available online at lwml.org (Lutheran Women’s Missionary League). Once at the website, scroll down to YOUR STRONG SUIT on the right hand side.

A Great Way to Start the Day! Is to read the daily Mustard Seed Devotion from LWML: food for the soul. The devotions are short, to the point, and apply to you. Sign up for the Mustard Seed devotionals at https://www.lwml.org/mustard-seed-devotions.
Your Mites at Work!
At the National LWML Convention, the 2021-23 Biennium Mission Grants were voted on that your Mites provide for. In the weeks ahead, I will list them in order of most votes to least as voted by delegates to the convention. The number eight grant voted on was: Light of Christ in Eastern Europe – Mission Central - $56,000: This grant supports eight missionaries in Germany and the Czech Republic to reach out to Muslims and other immigrants from the Middle East with the Gospel message.
