Greetings to the wonderful women of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church & School!
We are thrilled to announce the upcoming Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) Retreat, taking place in Cullman, AL from October 13th to 15th, 2023. This retreat promises to be a spiritually enriching experience, offering a blend of fellowship, worship, and activities that align with our mission.
For those unfamiliar, the LWML, also known as St. Paul’s Ladies Aid, meets every third Wednesday of the month at 1 PM in the Klein Haus. Our mission is to strengthen each woman’s relationship with the Triune God, enabling her to use her gifts to serve the global community. We welcome all ladies of our congregation to join us, and visitors are always appreciated. Our activities range from collecting “Mite Boxes” to gathering various items that aid both local and national projects.
This retreat is a fantastic opportunity for women from our church and parents of students attending St. Paul’s School to come together, deepen their faith, and enjoy a time of relaxation and camaraderie. If you would like to join us, please download and print the registration form. Remittance instructions are provided on the form. We look forward to seeing you!
