Lutheran Women's Missionary League

LWML logo

The Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML), with a membership of over 250,000, is the official women's organization of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.

The LWML focuses on affirming each woman in her relationship with Christ to enable her to be in ministry among the people of the world. For over 60 years the organization has been encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to financially support global missions.

The Chesapeake District is blessed to serve over 125 churches, divided into 11 zones. With our unique geographical location the district is made up of churches in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia with a small number of churches in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. We serve many members from West Virginia as well.

A sample edition of our newsletter Mite Brigade is available.

Please visit our district and national LWML websites for additional information.
