The Christian Life Committee of the LWML Kansas District provides guidance to the women of the Kansas District on how to find resources and programs to help them and their societies grow in faith.
“Save the date! The Christian Life Retreat will be held Nov 12-13, 2021 in Wichita. We are excited to announce that Past LWML Pres Patti Ross will share how we can be ‘Keeping the Focus on Jesus.’ Be on the lookout for more details in the Spring Sonshine and here.”
Christian Life comprises a number of events, resources, and tools to grow your faith.
Bible Study Samplers
There were short sessions at the 2020 Convention given by various LWML leaders – “samples” of a particular study or book you could use with your local group. View or download a PDF of these Bible Study samples for some great ideas.
2021 LWML Prayer Service
“He Prayed with Them”
When was the last time you prayed with someone?
Not for someone, but with someone?
We are encouraged in Scripture to be people of prayer, and prayer marks us as children of the heavenly Father. He has promised to hear us and to answer our prayers. May the 2021 Prayer Service encourage and expand our life of prayer to include praying with others.
Written by past LWML Pastoral Counselor Rev. Robert Mundahl and is based on Acts 20:36b.

“Resources for Planning Programs”
This “grab and go” resource provides two years of thematic monthly meeting plans. You can print as many copies as you need of any of the resources which include icebreakers, devotions, Bible studies, Mission Servant projects, reference to Mission Grants projects, and a periodic sketch.
A new two year collection is available following each national convention!
Prayer Mail (Pmail)
“Pray for those in need with LWML”
Do you have a prayer request or thanksgiving to be circulated? If you’d like to be included in the LWML Kansas District Prayer Mail network, send your name and email address to our coordinator Velma Bass. Requests, updates and thanksgivings are distributed in “blind copy” fashion so your email address is not shared with anyone else.
More than 100 LWML brothers and sisters participate in this email sharing.
Mustard Seed Devotions
“A vibrant tool for Christian growth and Gospel sharing”
The seed of the mustard plant is among the smallest of seeds, yet from this small seed grows a large bush. Jesus used the analogy of a mustard seed to show how something small and seemingly inconsequential can have a powerful impact. In 1971 the LWML developed a new series of short personal Bible studies called Mustard Seeds. Mustard Seed packets are used both for personal Bible study & as an evangelism or witness tool.

If you enjoyed the coloring note cards designed by Pat Maier and presented by Eden Keefe at the Christian Life Retreat November 2017 OR if you are just interested in what the “visual ministry” buzz is about, check out the new resources available on the Visual Faith Ministry website https://www.visualfaithmin.org/
This site is administered by Connie Denninger (the wife of the Southeastern District President), Pat Maier, and a few other LCMS women. In the words of Eden Keefe “This is an AMAZING website!” They are all free printables for church, school, or personal use. You “add them to your cart” as you browse and then “check out”, but after check out they are available as a free download to you and are also sent to your email address. Check it out!
Christian Life Connection
“Everyone needs a little CLC”
The purpose of the Christian Life Committee is to provide materials to engage, encourage, and equip women to grow in their Christian faith and service. Enjoy and share this periodic eNewsletter from the LWML Christian Life Committee, and use their Bible studies and devotions to share God’s love in your societies. Also view the archives of some great resources from the past eNewsletter from the LWML Christian Life Committee…”CALL– Connecting All LWML Leaders”. Visit the CL Connection page on LWML.org
