The Lutheran Women's Missionary League's (LWML’s) motto is “Serve the Lord with Gladness”. You will find this motto carried out everyday in the Faith Lutheran LWML whether it is serving funeral lunches, first Sunday coffee or coffee at Maryhouse, the women do it with gladness.
The LWML is mission oriented. It encourages women to live Christian lives. The six circles of Faith do this in many different ways: Altar Guild preparing the Church Sanctuary for Worship; Berea Circle taking care of the Library; Faith Circle preparing goodie boxes for the college students; Mary/Martha Circle visiting the elderly and shutins; Priscilla Circle supporting parents of Cradle Roll children and remembering them on special occasions, and Rebekah Circle’s support for the Daycare and Preschool, to list a few. They also do this by collecting “Mites” which are offerings above and beyond the support given to congregations and LCMS. These contributions go toward our district and national mission grants.
The Country Fair is a wonderful annual event that brings the whole congregation together to put all their talents to work for wonderful mission projects.
The 2010 Country Fair proceeds went to:
NATIONAL: Orphan Grain Train and Solar Oven Partners;
DISTRICT: Rosebud Lutheran Church and Angel Flight;
LOCAL: Pierre Food Pantry and Pierre Area Referral’s Back Pack Food Program;
IN-HOUSE: Daycare, Preschool, Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF).
