“Opened Eyes … Hearts Ablaze!” is the theme of this year’s materials designed to help congregations celebrate “Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Sunday” on Oct. 5, or an alternate date.
Dr. Robert Roegner, executive director of LCMS World Mission, authored the new materials, using the text from Luke 24:31-32 to develop the worship service ($4.25 per 50 for blank bulletins or $5 for 50 pre-printed bulletins, various item numbers), sermon and outline (free), and children’s sermon (free).
New this year, the worship-service CD ($10, item no. 99005) includes a short video clip featuring LWML President Jan Wendorf that can be used to inform congregations about the women’s auxiliary and its ministry.
Samples of the new worship-service bulletin and sermons were mailed in late June to all LCMS congregations and LWML societies.
Also included in the sample packet were:
Orders of LWML Sunday bulletins or the CD will receive a free packet of new “With This Ring” Mustard Seed Devotions.
Ideas for celebrating the special Sunday include:
