LUTHERAN WOMEN IN MISSION
MINNESOTA SOUTH DISTRICT
Lutheran Women Meeting the Gospel Challenge
The mission of the Minnesota South District Lutheran Women's Missionary League is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world. (Adopted 1988)
THE LEAGUE PLEDGE
In fervent gratitude for the Savior's dying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have;
And in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us.
We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowsip with Him. Amen

Mite Box Ministry
The MITE BOX is a small box used to receive gifts of gratitude to support the projects and programs of the LWML.
Anyone who wishes to contribute to the missions may use a MITE BOX.
MITE BOX offerings are collected and sent to the DISTRICT on a regular basis by the SOCIETY.
The DISTRICT keeps 75% of all MITE offerings for district grants; 25% is sent to the national LWML for its mission goal and programs.
Memorials and Bequests
You may honor a loved one by sending a memorial to the District LWML Financial Secretary. The District Memorial and Bequest Committee will distribute the funds for the mission and ministry of the District LMWL, the national LWML, or the LUtheran Church-Missouri Synod.
