LWML Reveals Logo for the 2017 Convention
The convention logo for the 37th Biennial Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Convention was created by graphic designer Nichelle Dykema of Boise, Idaho. The theme for the convention is: “Jesus Christ Above All.” The logo and the convention theme are based on the Scripture verse from Philippians 2:9.Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name.
In the logo, the simple yet powerful design allows the viewer to find personal inspiration. The strong vertical lines may represent tall western mountain ranges, compass points, or skyscrapers. The cross, in royal purple, evokes Jesus as King, above all of man’s striving for the heavens, while the blue lines embody sky and sea - Jesus rules even the earth. The vertical lines are broken by the word Jesus Christ, reminding us that Jesus is not only above all things, but in all things.
The LWML Convention will be held Thursday, June 22-Sunday, June 25, 2017, at the
Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. (updated March 2016)
The goal statement for the convention is: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, through Word and Sacrament, I will proclaim Jesus Christ above all.
Convention attendees will have the opportunity to be encouraged through worship and Bible study; equipped to share His message of salvation; and engaged in celebrating God’s faithfulness and serving the Lord with gladness.
LWML Past President Ida Mall will be the keynote speaker, the LCMS President will be the proclaimer at the opening worship service, Rev. Allen Anderson, LCMS Rocky Mountain District President will be the proclaimer at the closing worship service, Deaconess Betty Knapp will be the Bible study leader, Wendysue Fluegge will be the song leader, and Jan Struck will provide humorous interruptions as Katie Luther.
