When the Women of Eternal Hope Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Park, MN decided to make pillowcases for an area children’s hospital, they decided to get the entire church involved. Women and a few men of all ages came to help sew. At the end of the day 50 pillowcases were completed. One young attendee, Kaylee, age 11 enjoyed the project so much she continued making pillow cases over her summer vacation with her aunt.
Servant projects in the LWML are not only for LWMLers. They are also a great opportunity to share the joy of serving our Lord with others in our congregations and communities. So when you plan your next event, don’t stop the invitations at current members or LWML. Reach out and involve all the people in the pew. You never know who may be ready to serve with you.
Story update: This year friends and family of Women of Eternal Hope made a goal to make 100 pillowcases. Over 75 were either completed or started this March and the remaining 25 will be made at home by women who are on a mission to share God’s love!
The Mission Servants Committee would love to hear about and share your mission servant activities! Please contact us through the LWML email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
