From District President Becky Haltaufderheid
Welcome to North Wisconsin District LWML’s new website.

You will find all the information here that was on the old website. Take a look around and let me know what you think! The logo in the upper left hand corner is the new logo National LWML adopted at the 2017 Convention. The symbol was created with this in mind; one that represents the members of both the LWML and the Church. You see a heart to represent the love and giving nature of the members; a drop to symbolize the blood of Christ; and a cross above all else to proudly show the purpose behind the efforts of the LWML.

At our February Board of Directors meeting on February 19, the Board approved the Executive Committee’s recommendation to pay two full grants and one half of grant #3.

The following grants have been paid:

  • Grant #2: Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne Food Coop for $10,000;
  • Half of grant # 3: District Professional Church Workers Financial Aid for $12,500;
  • Grant #4 Ashland Cares, Inc. Homeless Shelter for $12,000 for a total of $34,500.

What a blessing this is to those in need. You are very instrumental in paying for these grants as you continue to place your offerings in your mite boxes. We still have lots of work to do both here and at the National level.

We selected a banner design that will represent the North Wisconsin District in Mobile. It is the world with a band of music notes across it. People with outstretched hands reaching upward and the words “Sing to the Lord, All the Earth!” There are music notes floating all over to show praise to the Lord.

Three Young Women applied to be a YWR representative for North Wisconsin District at Mobile. We could not make a decision on who to send, so we are sending all three! They will be so blessed.

North Wisconsin will be well represented at Mobile as we send a bus so full, we sent the overflow on the South Wisconsin District bus. Our past president, Mary Harrington is on the ballot for the Nominations Committee and Deaconess Betty Knapp is on the ballot for Vice-President of Special Focus Ministries. Sharon Nieman, who takes care of our LWML store and publicity wrote a national Mission grant Proposal for Lutheran Bible Translators. This grant is included on the Mission Grant ballot. We praise God that we are able to do the work God has called us to do in His name. If you are planning on attending the convention in Mobile, please send your registration in and make your hotel reservations. Rooms are going fast!

As we approach Ash Wednesday, I pray you will be blessed this Lenten season as you reflect on the great love God had for the world that he sacrificed His son for our salvation.
