  • The SELC is a district within the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS). Due largely to the work of Ann Bajus, women within SELC came together to become a part of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). In 1987 the LWML SELC was formed.

     

    Our LWML SELC District is now divided into three zones: Eastern Zone, Central Zone and Western Zone. The Eastern Zone includes LWML SELC societies in New Jersey, Connecticut, Eastern Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Central Zone societies are all located in Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. The Western Zone societies are located in Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. Each zone meets once or twice a year for zone rallies, and the LWML SELC District meets biennially in convention that rotates geographically among the three Zones. There are currently 21 societies in our district.  

     

    Mites are collected within the district to fund national LWML and LWML SELC District mission grant projects. Our mites have funded all types of projects at home and abroad, including, for example the Lutheran Church Charities Comfort Dogs, and many missionaries around the world. Within our district some of our mites have gone to purchase church signs, altar ware, paraments, handbells, hymnals, and media and other equipment for preschools and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs. Our LWML SELC District often supports the Lutheran Haven in Oviedo, Florida. In all these matters we are “serving the Lord with gladness.”
