Faith Building Help for Groups 2021–2023

Faith Building Help for Groups is the planner for 2021–2023. This planning resource includes over 50 new devotions, songs, Bible studies, and sketches to encourage your faith.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrew 12:1–2). 

One of the greatest joys as Lutheran Women in Mission is to run the race of faith proclaiming the glory of the Triune God and tell the truth that salvation is found only in Him. The purpose of the Faith Building Help for Groups manual is to help you do this with joy! Every Bible study, devotion, sketch, and song contained in this manual has been LCMS doctrinally reviewed so you can use them with confidence knowing that they truthfully proclaim God’s Word. The materials in this manual have been designed to help you reach the “woman in the pew” so that she can grow spiritually, joyfully join her LWML sisters in Christ, and spread the Word in service to Him.
