The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is an official auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has affirmed each woman’s identity as a child of God and her relationship with Jesus Christ. Lutheran Women in Mission are women of faith, empowered for active service in Jesus’ name and bold support of missions through Mite Box offerings. As Christians, we have been given the kingdom of God to bear its fruit.


Kingdom People Produce Kingdom Fruit


OPENING HYMN “Open Now Thy Gates of Beauty” LSB 901










SECOND READING Philippians 3:4b14


HOLY GOSPEL Matthew 21:3346



HYMN OF THE DAY "Praise, Love, Serve"

(Based on LWML Pledge, Text: Jean Hansen Kammerer, Tune: LSB 361)

Our God and Father, made the earth, And when we went astray,

Our God, the Son, descended here To take our sins away.

With His own blood He bought us. He broke the bonds of sin.

Then God the Spirit came into Our hearts to dwell within.


In gratitude we pledge ourselves, To Him with all we have.

Our hands will work; our voices sing; Our lips proclaim His love.

His errands we’ll do gladly; His Gospel we’ll defend;

Our silver and our gold we’ll use — His Kingdom to extend.


Wherever He has need of us, We will His call obey.

Whenever He calls out to us, We’ll answer right away.

His will is ours that lost souls Will turn away from sin

And come to have eternal life Through fellowship with Him.

SERMON “Kingdom People Produce Kingdom Fruit”

The kingdom of God will be … given to a people
producing its fruits” (Matthew 21:43).



In fervent gratitude for the Savior's dying love and His blood-bought gift of redemption we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have; and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest fields, we pledge Him our willing service wherever and whenever He has need of us. We consecrate to our Savior our hands to work for Him, our feet to go on His errands, our voice to sing His praises, our lips to proclaim His redeeming love, our silver and our gold to extend His Kingdom, our will to do His will, and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and the erring into eternal fellowship with Him. Amen.

CLOSING HYMN “Serve the Lord with Gladness”

Text: Prof. Ernest Lewerenz, Tune: LSB 662

“Serve the Lord with gladness!”  It is He alone
Who redeemed us sinners,  Guides us as His own
To enjoy the blessings  Of His love and grace,
Will at last in glory  Meet us face to face.
Onward, then, for Jesus!  Let this be our aim:

“Serve the Lord with gladness!” 

Glorify His name.

“Serve the Lord with gladness!”  He gave us command
To proclaim His Gospel  Now in every land
So that fellow sinners  May, like us, be blest.
Leading them to Jesus,  We can serve Him best.
Onward, then, for Jesus!  Let this be our aim:
“Serve the Lord with gladness!” 

Glorify His name!

 “Serve the Lord with gladness!”  There’s no greater joy
Than to serve the Master,  Work in His employ.
As we build His kingdom  Angels, too, rejoice
Over every sinner  Brought to hear His voice.
Onward, then, for Jesus!  Let this be our aim:
“Serve the Lord with gladness!”
Glorify His name!
