The first Sunday in October is traditionally set aside for the observation of LWML Sunday, but it may be celebrated at any time. Based upon Psalm 62:1–8, the theme chosen for LWML Sunday 2018 was “Our Rest in a Changing World.” As God’s children, we rest in the assurance that He loves us and sent His Son to redeem us. God is our rock and salvation. That firm foundation enables us to reach out into a changing world in need of the Gospel. Since 1942, the LWML has affirmed each woman’s identity as a child of God and her relationship with Jesus Christ, encouraging and equipping Christian women to live out their lives in active mission ministries, and to support missions around the world through their sacrificial gifts of mites, tithes, offerings, and tireless service.
In fervent gratitude for the Savior’s dying love and His blood brought gift of redemption, we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service, wherever and whenever He hath need of us. We consecrate to our Savior Our hands to work for Him, Our feet to go on His errands, Our voice to sing His praises, Our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, Our silver and our gold to extend His kingdom, Our will to do His will, And every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him.
