Are You Prepared For Christmas?
As leaders in the LWML, we have the opportunity to address the true meaning of Christmas while the world is bombarding us with “holiday” commercials. As we plan our December LWML events, consider using LWML resources to remind attendees why we celebrate Christmas, the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Check out the Christmas Collection on CD (code 51011) which will make your program planning easy with a Bible study, devotions, programs, readings, and sketches. There are numerous other Advent and Christmas resources available on the “shop” tab on the LWML website and through the LWML Catalog. As the time for baking, shopping, and decorating draws near, be aware of the example you set as an LWML leader. Draw strength and peace from the Baby in the manger. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, may your LWML Christmas events be centered in Christ!
The Planning Zone - The Planning Zone has been compiled as a resource to assist leaders at the zone and society levels so they can:
› understand the organization of the LWML and “how it works;”
› be guided and inspired as they fulfill their leader role;
› identify key components of a zone/society event;
› lead and participate in a business meeting; and
› be empowered with resources for completing the leader tasks.
“Wow! I wish I had a copy of that Bible study!” Have you ever said that after participating in a study with such a powerful message you wanted to share it with others?
It just might happen with the Bible study, Christian Leaders Bible Study, written by Rev. John Heckmann, one of our LWML Pastoral Counselors. Geared for Christian leaders, it contains new insights into developing leadership attitudes and skills.
The Christian Leaders Bible Study is divided into three parts, each with a different focus. A separate study guide and leaders guide are available on this page as free downloads. They are also offered for purchase in the LWML Catalog as printed resources: Study Guide #14191; Leaders Guide #14190
This is an excellent resource for districts to use with their board of directors, committee chairmen, or zone counterparts. Consider passing it along to use on the zone level at retreats or rallies, or as a resource for society leaders. Take a look today! It will be a blessing and a help for you.
Welcome to our link on the LWML website. We are a committee who seeks to Follow The Leader, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We serve with confidence knowing He will lead and guide us as we read in Psalm 25:5a NIV: “Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are my God and Savior.”
Our committee's objective this biennium is: While in an intentional walk with our Lord, women will receive guidance and be encouraged as ministry partners for joyful service.
Watch for updates on this Leader Development page, including monthly articles, quarterly newsletters, and more revised resources offered as free downloads and through the LWML Catalog.
We are seeking ways to better connect, network, and share ideas and information with LWML women in our districts, zones and societies. Please support our efforts by lifting up this committee in your prayers: Cheri Fish, Katy Gifford, and Eden Keefe, Chairman.
We’d Love to Hear From You! Please let us know if we can assist you in any way. If you have specific topics you would like to see researched and addressed we would love to hear from you, too. Please contact email@example.com and put Leader Development in the subject line so the message can be forwarded to us.
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are my God and Savior.
