Materials available for 'LWML Sunday,' Oct. 5

“Opened Eyes … Hearts Ablaze!” is the theme of this year’s materials designed to help congregations celebrate “Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Sunday” on Oct. 5, or an alternate date.lwml-sun.gif

Dr. Robert Roegner, executive director of LCMS World Mission, authored the new materials, using the text from Luke 24:31-32 to develop the worship service ($4.25 per 50 for blank bulletins or $5 for 50 pre-printed bulletins, various item numbers), sermon and outline (free), and children’s sermon (free).

New this year, the worship-service CD ($10, item no. 99005) includes a short video clip featuring LWML President Jan Wendorf that can be used to inform congregations about the women’s auxiliary and its ministry.

Samples of the new worship-service bulletin and sermons were mailed in late June to all LCMS congregations and LWML societies.

Also included in the sample packet were:

  • a banner pattern for the LWML Sunday logo.

  • an order form for LWML Sunday materials.

  • information about new LWML products.

  • a flier on the next LWML national convention, to be held June 25-28, 2009, in Portland, Ore.
  • Orders of LWML Sunday bulletins or the CD will receive a free packet of new “With This Ring” Mustard Seed Devotions.

    Ideas for celebrating the special Sunday include:

  • handing out LWML “mite boxes” to encourage mission-grant support.

  • collecting a door offering for LWML mites.

  • asking LWML members to serve as ushers and greeters, wearing their purple LWML apparel.

  • recognizing all LWML and Teen LWML members.

  • giving away LWML pencils, bookmarks, and other items.
