The first Sunday in October is traditionally set aside for the observation of LWML Sunday, but it may be celebrated at any time.
“Our Hearts in His Hand” is the theme for LWML Sunday 2021 and is based on Peter’s first letter to persecuted Christians in Asia Minor. In chapter 4:8, Peter tells them, Above all, keep loving one another earnestly. The heart of the LWML is its members; our hearts have been made holy by God. We are fully dedicated to serving Him, by serving His Church at home and abroad. Our hearts for Christ are in His hand of service, wherever and when He has need of us.
A full worship service is available for download. As many pastors prefer to tailor their services to their congregation’s needs, the sermon, litany and children’s sermon can also be downloaded separately and may be inserted in any worship service wherever needed.
All worship and devotional materials have received approval from LCMS Doctrinal Review.
