What’s New on the LWML Website

 2016 LWML Prayer Service
“Wanted: Workers in God’s Harvest Field”

by Pastor John Heckmann, Past LWML Pastoral Counselor

The 2016 LWML Prayer Service expands on the themes of “Sow ● Nourish ● Reap” from the Des Moines LWML Convention. Whether it is the thousands of acres farmed in Iowa and other states, our own backyard, or the field our Heavenly Father allows us to tend and nourish with and through His means of grace, this service offers a time of worship revolving around the various tools needed to bring about a bountiful harvest.

The service offers opportunities for:

  • singing;
  • learning a little bit about farming practices through the ages;
  • Confession and Absolution;
  • very small group discussion; and
  • prayer.
