LWML Turns 80 in 2022!

At a meeting held in July 1942, at St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Chicago, Illinois, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) was founded by delegates from 15 districts. For 80 years, Lutheran Women in Mission have joyfully proclaimed Christ, supported missions, and equipped women to honor God by serving others. As we continue to serve the Lord with gladness, let’s celebrate the blessings that the Lord has bestowed on LWML — 80 years of serving Him and those around us!

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

In thanksgiving for 80 years, please join me and others as we 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. Learn more about “What’s Your 80?” at You will find plenty of ideas and suggestions for sharing “your 80” with us.

In thanksgiving for 80 years, “my 80” is to donate an extra $80 to mites every month for the next 12 months. What’s Your 80?
