Congregations in a close geographical area may form a circuit. Circuit membership is encouraged. 

Circuit rallies are semi-annual gatherings where mission-minded women come together to encourage one another in spiritual growth and mission awareness. They are usually held in the spring and the fall. These are a wonderful opportunity to meet or join with women for worship, fellowship, and learning about missions at home and around the world.

There are 60 LWMS circuits and each circuit has the latitude to organize their circuit gatherings as will work best in their area. Some start with a Bible study while others enjoy hearing a mission speaker followed by study of the Word. While a business meeting is essential to conducting the business of the organization, the time is kept to a minimum to allow for more time to focus on mission and spiritual growth.

The LWMS membership list by circuit can be found on the Members page.

For upcoming rally information, see our Calendar.

Check out the WELS Missions Promotions page for information on requesting mission speakers, mission display kits, and mission fact sheets that you can print for your circuit rallies or mission festivals.

Resource Materials - Check out the resource catalog for items to use within your circuit.

Social Media

Does your circuit have a Facebook page? Are you thinking about starting one? The LWMS Awareness committtee has put together a brochure on using Facebook to reach out to others using social media. You can download the brochure Reaching Out on Facebook. Before posting anything to social media or website, please make sure that you are familiar with the latest security guidlines from WELS. You can request a copy of the security guidelines from the LWMS Central Office.
