LWMS Annual Convention

The LWMS convention is held every year during the last full weekend of June and is hosted by local LWMS circuits. It is a wonderful opportunity to gather together with other mission-minded WELS women for worship, fellowship, and learning about missions at home and around the world.

The convention typically begins with a communion worship service on Thursday evening and ends with a service on Sunday morning. Friday and Saturday are filled with a mixture of mission speakers, workshops, devotions and entertainment.
