Lutheran Women's Missionary League

The LWML is a central hub of Grace where a group of faithful women meet up to fellowship, break bread, and find ways of reaching our Durham community, as well as others around the world.

  • Birthday and Anniversary Card sending

Join women at Grace who make quilts all the year long. They meet on Wednesday mornings at 10 AM and often have lunch together afterward. It is a great way to make new friends. The quilts are collected and sent to Lutheran World Relief once a year. 

Blanket Set

Prayer Shawls

Women at Grace who enjoy knitting and crocheting meet gather once a month to make prayer shawls. These shawls are given away as gifts. 

Eating a Meal

Golden Nuggets

Golden Nuggets hosts a potluck meal after the 11:00 AM service on the first Sunday of the month. It is a time for fellowship and enjoying good food. Everyone is always welcome to come (with or without food) and to bring a friend.
