2023 Convention In-Kind Gifts

Each year, the women of our Synod gather for our annual convention. Throughout the year the women that gather create and assemble quilts, kits and other offerings for our in-kind offering. These kits are then sent to Lutheran World Relief as well as other groups depending on the year. The Mission Action team chooses a kit to prioritize for our women every year, but all Lutheran World Relief kits are accepted. In recent years, we have utilized a large semi truck and trailer to haul our donations to the Twin Cities. In 2017, we filled this enormous trailer half way with our offerings!

2023 In Kind Offering

This year the Mission Action team has decided to focus on School Kit! These kits are simple to assemble and inexpensive.

Make one or a few Lutheran World Relief School Kits as a solo kit-maker, or make hundreds as part of a kit assembly with your congregation. Please consider organizing a drive for your local unit and bring your assembled kits to convention in May. Each School Kit you make will be cherished by the person who receives it. Check out the School Kit Resources below. 

 A truck or trailer will be parked out front to bring them all to Lutheran World Relief for you! For more information on how to assemble these kits, please visit the guidelines at Lutheran World Relief.
