“And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.” Luke 10:39
The Ascension Women’s League
On the first Monday of the month at 7:00 PM, the Ascension Women’s League (AWL)–the women’s group at Ascension, meets. Sometimes there’s business to conduct, sometimes there’s fun to be had, often it’s a combination of the two. This group plans most of the congregation’s social activities.
These meetings are often combined with meetings of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). The LWML is the official women’s auxiliary of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For almost 75 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries, and to support global missions.
The women of Ascension are a welcoming and accepting group. All women are encouraged to attend meetings, lend a hand, and share some laughs.
