Lutheran Women’s Missionary League
Trinity’s basic LWML theme is “Serve The Lord With Gladness”
To become a member, just attend one of the League meetings and you will be invited to be a member.
We meet for League Meetings on the First Tuesday of January, April, July, and October.
As a Society we have many different ways that we serve in the Church and the World.
We also meet every 1st Tuesday of the Month (those months we don’t have a League meeting) for Bible Study lead by Bernie Reetz.
You can be involved in any of these committees or activities.
For the Church we have:
This involves the responsibility of keeping the Communion Vessels clean and polished, changing the paraments for the church year and seeing that they are clean and good repair, also, decorating the altar as needed for special services.
This guild serves Trinity in the kitchen for a variety of events such as wedding receptions, funeral dinners, pastoral conferences, and pot luck luncheons. SOON, we will have a list of teams assigned so that every lady in the congregation can have an opportunity to serve. Youth groups can also be a part of this guild. Or any men that would be willing to serve in this capacity.
The auditing committee audits the LWML Books once a Year.
This committee maintains contact with our students attending college, They make contact with students from other congregations attending Garden City Community College, and contact members of our congregation who are serving in the U.S. armed Services.
This committee send out cards to Trinity Members who have Birthdays, Anniversaries, illnesses, wedding, sympathy, baptism, confirmation, new members, and need some encouragement.
Meals on Wheels
Various churches in the community take turns delivering meals to the elderly and handicapped. Volunteers may do this by themselves or with another person for one or more days, or all week. The volunteers pick up the prepared meals form the hospital and use their own vehicle to make deliveries.
Member Development Committee
This committee creates and provides ideas, techniques and resources which will enrich and stimulate individuals to increase membership for the society.
This ministry is for the shut-ins or the ill in our congregation that are unable to attend the worship services. Each week as needed, a recorded tape of the service and a bulletin are delivered to homes and left until the following week. We have a few tape players to be checked out if the resident does not have one. A master file of the tapes are retained for the year. If you want a copy of a special service, ie… baptism, then contact Fern or Shirley and they will make you a copy.
This is an opportunity to meet once a week on Thursday mornings to work on Lutheran World Relief Quilts. We receive donations of fabric and sheets from a variety of sources and we use these materials to create quilts that will be shipped for use all over the world.
