Women of Faith

An open Heart of love for all our sisters in Christ in our congregation, community, and the world.  An open Bible that we may continue to grow in the inerrant Word of God through study and Divine worship. The Dove represents the fruits of the spirit given to us in our baptism by the Holy Spirit.  And the Cross keeps us focused on Jesus above all, as our Lord and Savior.

Who We Are

The Women of Faith (WoF) promote Christian knowledge, fellowship and service at large. If you are a woman (high school age and above) attending Faith Lutheran Church then you are a part of Women of Faith. Our gifts of time and efforts are signs of love to our Savior. We invite and encourage all women of Faith to join our sisterhood.

We conduct business meetings throughout the year and invite you to attend. Morning meetings immediately follow the Tuesday morning Bible Study. The evening meetings, usually include a guest speaker or program, and are held on Thursday evenings. Announcements of the meetings are in the church newsletter and bulletins and WOF yearly handbook.

Our society is part of the national Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML), which is the official women’s group of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod. We are in the Texas District and are a member society of the Dal-North Zone LWML, which meets twice a year.

The only method of gathering funds that the national LWML advocates is through Mite boxes, small cardboard boxes that each woman uses as a reminder of the widow who gave all she had to the Lord (Mark 12: 41-44). Give to the Mites, out of each dollar, 25% will go toward international missions and 75% with be used for mission projects in our Texas District. Your spare change makes a big difference by bringing support, comfort, and knowledge of Jesus to many in need. A Mite box is given to our women to help them give a prayer and a coin for mission work. Each month, we have a special moment when Mites are gathered and dedicated to God’s work.

The major fundraiser for Women of Faith is our annual rummage sale. Held in the fall, this rummage sale is an outreach to our neighbors, as well as, a way to provide WoF the funds needed to assist our congregation with projects and missions.

The Women of Faith Executive Board strive to involve as many women in our ministry as possible. Prayerfully consider supporting us when we reach out to you regarding the needs of the church or church members. We try to keep business meetings brief but when one is called please try to attend, as your input is valued.

We also strive to keep you informed about WOF. Follow us on Facebook: Faith Lutheran Church Women of Faith. Emails will be sent periodically to keep you informed, so be sure to give us your email address for the distribution list. Phone calls, newsletter articles, and bulletin announcements are also a way we communicate to our members.

If you want to be more involved or have a question, please contact any of the WOF officers. We would love to get to know you better and have your participation.

Theme: Jesus Christ above all

Verse: “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

Philippians 2: 9-11

Goal: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, through Word and Sacrament, I will proclaim Jesus Christ above all.

Objective: To proclaim Jesus Christ above all through our service and outpouring of love to our church, our community and the world around us.
