The Mite Box-based on the Biblical account of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1-4), the mite box is intended for regular contributions of “mites” – offerings above and beyond the support given to congregation and the LCMS. Mite box contributions amount to millions of dollars that fund district and national mission grants and implement the LWML program.
