As an auxiliary of Lutheran Church–Canada, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League–Canada is committed to serve and support the mission of the church through mission grants, service projects and resources. Mission in word and deed is the focus of all LWML–Canada activities. Four areas of work include Growing in Faith; Putting Faith into Action; Encouraging One Another in Faith; and Working Together in Faith.
The first LWML–Canada mission trip took place in November of 2008 when a small group of women travelled to Nicaragua to lead women in Bible study, teach crafts and songs to the children and spend time encouraging and mentoring sisters in Christ.
Growing in Faith
LWML–Canada produces resources which include Bible studies, individual and booklet devotions and sketches. Many seminars have been prepared to encourage and strengthen a woman’s walk of faith. Resources may be ordered from our catalogue or downloaded from our website by clicking here.
