The Lutheran Women's Missionary League is made up of the ladies who are communicant members of the congregation and seek to develop, promote and maintain a mission consciousness in our congregation. In addition, they strive to perform acts of service for the congregation and community.

Mission Statement

Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only. Matthew 4:10

The mission of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is to assist each woman of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.

If anyone is interested in participating in LWML or a Bible Study please contact Mary Harrington at 715-468-7797. We would LOVE to have you join us.


In fervent gratitude for the Savior's dying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption we dedicate ourselves to Him . . . . . . with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us. We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for Him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His Kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him. Amen. ®
