LWML Sunday was celebrated at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Lillian, AL, on Sunday, October 16.

The ladies of the congregation served as greeters, ushers, candle lighter, fellowship helpers, and on altar guild. A special cake and other refreshments were served to all during fellowship time. The theme for LWML Sunday was Come and See, based on Psalm 66:5–“Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.”

Since 1942, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League has affirmed each woman’s identity as a child of God and her relationship with Jesus Christ. Women are encouraged and equipped to live out their lives in active mission ministries, as well as to support missions throughout the world through sacrificial gifts of mites, tithes, offerings, and tireless service. Through their invitation to “come and see” what God has done for all people, countless neighbors from all walks of life have been reached and touched by the love of God in Christ Jesus.
