Lutheran Women in Mission Sunday

Ready to Serve

Traditionally celebrated the first Sunday in October, Lutheran Women in Mission Sunday can be celebrated any time.

This year’s Lutheran Women in Mission Sunday theme is “Ready to Serve” based on Luke 1:38. As redeemed children of God, Lutheran Women in Mission give thanks for the opportunity to serve others as we have been served, to proclaim that Jesus is our Lord and that He came for all nations, and to respond with our mite offerings to support God’s mission. Our example has been the widow and her mites. The offering she made was observed by our Lord leading Him to share that her copper coins, her mites, were “everything she had, all she had to live on” (Mark 12:43). May our mite offerings be blessed for our Lord’s kingdom.

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her (Luke 1:38).

2024 Lutheran Women in Mission Sunday downloadable materials, authored by Rev. Dr. Dwayne Lueck, will be available soon.
