Paint the Planet Purple – What does this mean?

Paint the Planet Purple with Servanthood

The official colors of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League are purple and gold. Purple, symbolizes royalty, and gold symbolizes value and integrity. The vision of the LWML is to recognize that each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God given gifts as she supports global mission and serves the Lord with gladness.

When you use your gifts to serve God, “Jesus’ love in action,” you are spreading the word of Christ around the world. You are painting the planet purple!

We would like you to share with us where, what, when, and how you have shared “Jesus’ love in action.” The Gospel Outreach Committee would love to hear about and share your mission servant activities! Please contact us through the LWML email at Thank you.

A New Kind of Gift Exchange

A New Kind of Gift Exchange — A Reflection of Jesus’ Love in Action

nullInstead of exchanging gifts at the Christmas Party last year, our LWML group decided to place the money we would have spent on a gift exchange to share Jesus’ love in action with a CASA family (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children). The family was anonymous but we were provided basic information about them. We gathered enough money to buy the family personal items and gifts. We were also able to pay some of their bills. This family is now attending church and the children are going to Sunday school. God has blessed us and them as we reached out to share the hope and promise of Christ at Christmas.

Thank You Lord for the opportunities that you put in front of us. Help us to recognize these opportunities to share your love and the Gospel with others.

Cross Generational Learning Day

Cross Generational Learning — A Reflection of Jesus’ Love in Action

LWML women and young ladies of Eternal Hope Lutheran Church, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota were very happy to engage in a ‘cross generational’ Learning Day.  We presented Pie Crust making classes to a few young ladies and also helped other ladies that just have not made any pies in years.  So April 13, 2019 was a very busy and productive day.

This class included demonstrations, plus a hands-on section.  Everyone got to measure and mix ingredients, roll out dough, crimp edges, and watch as the crust baked.  Some made a pudding type filling and left them to be enjoyed on Sunday during our Palm Sunday Dinner, while others took them home to fill and enjoy with families.

Cross Generation activities prove to be so very valuable, not only in learning skills, but getting to know each other, especially our young ladies, as they grow.
