LWML: What's Your 80? 1942–2022 — 80 Years of God's Grace

In thanksgiving for 80 years of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, each member, group, zone, or district is encouraged to reflect God’s love by blessing others with 80 of something, remembering events from the last 80 years, or sharing legacy concepts for carrying forth the LWML mission. Below are some ideas to get you started. 

We are planning a montage of your activities at the 2023 LWML Convention in Milwaukee. Be sure to take a picture of your group’s 80. Submit one or two photos and brief description of "your 80" to depcom@lwml.org. These will be used to build the montage.
