WOMEN'S MINISTRY AT

OUR SAVIOR

The Women's Ministry at Our Savior is active in supporting groups within and outside of Our Savior Lutheran Church. There is something for women of all ages! Many of the activites are aligned with the Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) of the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod. The mission of the LWML 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.

The LWML meets on the 4th Sunday of each month in the room off of the Fellowship Hall. 

Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude supports American Military and First Responders with care packages. Our Savior’s Women’s Ministry has been supporting Operation Gratitude for several years by sending them handmade scarves every November.

Every month, starting in February, and ending in October we will be collecting two items to go in these care packages. A marked box will be located in the Welcome Center for you to drop off your donations. 

 

For September we are asking for:

  • Individual packages of Jerky

The following are the totals for the items donated though July:

  • Deodorant – 66

In 2018 we donated a total of 68 quilts. Here are the stories of some of the quilts donated: 

  • Twenty-five were given to Freedom House in Louisville which is a residential treatment program for alcohol and/or drug dependent pregnant women and women with young children. This holistic and comprehensive program is designed to treat the women’s chemical dependency, to break the cycle of addiction in families, to reunite families broken apart by addiction, and to promote the birth of healthy, drug-free babies.  

  • Nineteen were given to Louisville Rescue Mission  They reconcile homeless and hurting people to God, family, and community by the power of Christ in partnership with the local church.  A Christ Care Small Group at Our Savior serves monthly at this organization.
