All women members of Messiah Lutheran Church can belong to the Messiah Lutheran Women. The Terms of Reference state that any woman member of Messiah Lutheran Church who subscribes to the purpose – proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ – is eligible to be a member. A copy of the Terms of Reference can be downloaded (download instructions) from this site or through the church office.
General Meetings are held mainly for the purpose of electing the officers and distribution of money gathered through fundraising activities such as the Fall Faire (tea, bake and craft sale) and the convening of funerals and other events in the church.
The current officers are:

Program Co-ordinator Jennifer Rust
Convenors Marion Hopkins & Hazel Schultz
Faith Circle Chair Myrtle Giles

MLW sponsors several events through the year:

All events are open to all women at Messiah Lutheran, and for social events you can bring friends or relatives with you as well.
As well, MLW presents bibles to all Grade 3 Sunday School students each year, and administers the Secret Angel Program.

As part of that larger group, there are two circles which meet to have bible study and regular monthly meetings:
Faith Circle meets in the Peace Chapel at 1:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of every month except December, July & August. In June we enjoy a special lunch and fellowship together before we go our separate ways for the summer months. And in December we join all ladies of Messiah in a Christmas party.
Several times a year we join other ladies in special events coordinated by the General Executive of Messiah Lutheran Women.
Although there is no longer a national women’s organization, in our cirlce we still follow that motto: “We are a Christ-centered community of women committed to nurturing our faith and spiritual strength, enabling us to be people of God in mission.”
Everyone who has the afternoon free and would like to join us is welcome. Come every month, or if you are travelling just join us when you can.
The main focus of our time together is a Bible Study and prayer which results in much discussion and sharing of life experiences. A free-will offering is taken and throughout the year we support several church and community projects. Refreshments and fellowship are also enjoyed.
Please join us any time!
