You can leave the following or write your own words about the mite box. I have fixed up wording and a link at the end to take them to the national page to download wraparounds, etc.
Members and friends of Lutheran Women’s Missionary League-Canada collect most of their funds in small coin boxes called “mite boxes.” The money collected this way is used to provide grants to projects that others do.
THE MITE BOX
Based on the Biblical story of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1-4) in the King James Version (more recent versions refer to a small coin worth less than a penny) the mite box is intended for regular contribution of “mites” – offerings above and beyond, and not in competition to, the support given to the congregation and the church body.
The mite box is more than just a small cardboard box! It is a reminder:
• to share blessings from God,
• to pray for mission projects,
• to thank the Lord for mission opportunities.
Mite box contributions amount to thousands of dollars. They allow the contributors, through the districts and the national body of LWML-Canada, to provide mission grants which assist others in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to implement the LWMLC program.
