Christian Life

The Christian Life team promotes, provides and encourages Bible study at all District LWML activities, to include meetings, retreats, and zone events.  They seek to reaffirm spiritual growth of God’s people, equip individual women for greater service in God’s Kingdom, assist and encourage LCMS women to recognize their service potential and motivate women to grow in faith and in service to the Lord.

2024 Prayer Service

Grace, Mercy, Peace

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord (1 Timothy 1:2; 2 Timothy 1:2). 

At some point you have probably heard a pastor begin his sermon by saying something similar to this verse from 1 Timothy. The 2024 Prayer Service is designed around those first three words — those three gifts that come to us from our gracious Father and our Savior — Grace, Mercy, and Peace.

Read Through the Bible in One Year

Did you start reading the Bible at the beginning of this year? Or do you feel like you missed the Bible reading boat? It is never too late to start the daily readings. The LWML Gospel Outreach Committee created a monthly reading plan to guide you. You can start with today’s reading and finish the yearly readings next year at this time. Or you can start the daily readings from the beginning. God’s Word speaks to us each and every day. Many LWML women have accepted the challenge to read through the Bible in one year. If the Holy Spirit is nudging you to be in His Word, please join us.

 LWML Spiritual Growth Resources for Leadership: Not just for LWML leaders in our
 group, zone, district, or national disciples of Christ, we are all leaders.   
 Bible Studies and resources are available to help influence us to be effective Christian servant leaders.
