The Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) is recognized as the official women's auxiliary organization of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. The LWML is comprised of member societies within synodical congregations. The purpose of the LWML is to further Christ's mission to the world by supporting the work of the church and by providing education, inspiration, and opportunities for service, both at home and in the world.
The LWML endeavors to develop and maintain a greater mission consciousness among the women of the synod through programs of Mission Inspiration, Mission Education, and Mission Service.
Work of the LWML is accomplished by the voluntary contributions of its members through Mite Box offerings. The LWML Michigan District supports its programs with 75% of the Mite Box offerings and forwards the remaining 25% to national LWML for its projects and programs.
