Quarterly serves as LWML outreach tool

The Lutheran Womanís Quarterly is a major outreach tool of the LWML. Our goal is to place the Quarterly into the hands of every woman in our congregations and communities.

Please remember, unless your society is paying for each Quarterly they receive, the funds come out of mite offerings.

If your society is able to cover the subscription cost of each Quarterly ó great. If not, consider making at least a partial contribution. You might even consider a special fundraiser to cover this cost.

In either case, please continue to distribute the Quarterly as widely as possible. Our LWML Mission Statement encourages us to assist women in their relationship with the Lord.
