Women's Ministry

Women growing as noble, strong characters of Christ.

Our Purpose

The Trinity Women’s Ministry aims to connect women with other women, working to build one another up in Christ and to build positive, strong, and healthy relationships with God and with others (Proverbs 31).

Our goal is that women will be able to speak with wisdom, fear the Lord, be hardworking, teach the Gospel, and care for others (Proverbs 31:26-29).

The Mite Box:  Money collected in this little box is the way Mission grants are funded both at the Michigan District and the National LWML levels.  Over LWML’s 79 years of existence, $127 Million in grants have been awarded to organizations that reached into 81 countries on five continents.  For the Michigan District 2020-2022 Grant Years, the Mite goal is $251,250.  For the National LWML Grant Years 2021-2023, the Mite goal is $2,150,000.

Trinity’s LWML Society:  meets the second Monday of September, November, January, March and May.  Regular meetings feature Bible study, mission speakers, reports, projects, and Mite Box devotions and collection. Special events include the February Valentine Tea and May Banquet with guest speaker.

Trinity Quilters:  meet once a month on Fridays or Wednesdays during the summer to assemble quilts to be sent to Lutheran World Relief.  These quilts get sent around the world to assist those left homeless or those in need when disasters strike.  (Organized by Trinity’s LWML)
