THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! LWML and Good Shepherd would like to thank everyone who helped in any way to make our annual Fall Festival another successful one! We do appreciate all of the time and work that people put in to support our programs. The proceeds benefit Good Shepherd, Zion’s Christian Care program, Brighton’s Almost Home and the Lutheran Hour Ministries.

The next program coming up for LWML is “Tator Time” on Monday, November 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. What kind of “Tater” are you? Are you an “Agie Tater” (always stirring up trouble) or are you a “Sweet Tater” (always willing to help, bringing sunshine to the lives of others)? Come and have some fun with “taters”!

Besides the projects that LWML does here at Zion, the LWML also has many resources available for anyone to use. One of these is the Mustard Seed packet. In 1971 the Lutheran Woman’s Missionary League (LWML) developed a series of short personal Bible studies called Mustard Seeds. (The seed of the mustard plant is among the smallest of seeds, yet from this small seed grows a large bush. Jesus used the analogy of a mustard seed to show how something small and seemingly inconsequential can have a powerful impact.) These individual leaflets were designed initially to help women working outside the home share their faith during coffee breaks and lunch hour discussions. Over the years the LWML developed numerous Mustard Seed packets, all on different topics. They are used for personal Bible study or as an evangelism/witness tool. The hope is that Mustard Seeds will continue to be a strong, vibrant tool for Christian growth and Gospel sharing
