Who We Are
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. For over 70 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
The League Pledge
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.

“Lutheran Women One and All”
Lutheran women, one and all, We have heard the Gospel call. We by faith have seen our Lord Crucified and then restored. We have seen Him pay the price, For our sins a sacrifice. Him we Lord and Christ acclaim And unite to praise His name. Lutheran women, young and old, Well we know His challenge bold: Help to take the Gospel light To a world in darkest night, By example in the home, By inviting those who roam, By our prayers for sinners lost, By our gifts for missions’ cost. Lutheran women, coast to coast, In the Lord a mighty host, Let us all united be In the Holy Trinity, One in faith, in hope, and love, Working for the Lord above, Till, our earthly labors done, We in heaven shall all be one.
