The women's organization of St. John's celebrated its 135th Anniversary during 2011.  It is significant to note that only 25 years after the founding of St. John's, a group of women had a vision to organize "Frauenverein" in order to serve special needs of the congregation.

Who We Are
The Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) is the official women's auxiliary of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For over 65 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman's relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.

Our purpose is to inform, encourage, and inspire women to be actively involved in supporting Mission Outreach.

The Lutheran Women's Missionary League is collects mites annually.  This amount is forwarded to LWML District and will be used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, throughout our State, our Nation and the World.  We thank God for blessing us in this way and we thank everyone who participated in the project.
Women's Quarterly Subscriptions cost $6.50 for the year.
LWML raises money for missions through sponsoring the annual Sauerkraut Dinner.  Over 500 people attend the wonderful meal of kraut, pork, mashed potatoes and gravy, roll, and great pie.

Another favorite is the annual rummage sale.

LWML also gives to projects within our local church, such as repairing the organ and contributing to the choir fund.

The chapter also works with the Rachel Circle to organize the annual Women's Christmas dinner.
