Lutheran Women in Mission (LWML)

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is an official  auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.

Mission Statement

As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others. 

Prayer Chain

We currently have an email prayer chain at St. Paul.

The way a prayer chain works is that you will be contacted and asked to pray for specific people and specific situations. We ask you to pray immediately (if possible) when you receive the request and then to include the request in your regular prayers.

To enroll as a member of the Email Prayer Chain, contact Kathy Zawilenski at

Become a member of the prayer chain and let the prayers of God's people be offered to our Lord! Questions? Speak with Pastor.

Food Pantry

Even if there are specific food requests for each month, any donation of nonperishable food is welcome!

St. Cyprian's Food Pantry is located at
United in Faith Lutheran Church
6535 W. Irving Park Road
Chicago, IL 60634

The Food Pantry is open on Mondays and Thursdays from 9AM to 11AM.

Did you know that the individuals or families can go to the food pantry only once a month? They must register and records are kept. For the past two years, St. Paul members have played a significant role in providing items that the pantry never has enough of. The pantry serves as a Christian witness to many diverse peoples, Christian and non-Christian, who live in the multi-cultural neighborhoods between Belmont and Bryn Mawr/Cumberland and Central.


The Al-Anon Family groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope, in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses or opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through voluntary contributions.

Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.

Is Al-Anon For Me?

Help is here for the asking. Are you troubled by someone's drinking? Did you grow up with

a problem drinker? If you identify with some of these statements, it is important to know that help and hope for friends and families of alcoholics is just a phone call away.


We know the importance of protecting the identity of one another, providing a safe place in which to mutually exchange our experience, strength and hope. Our Traditions, promoting unity and harmony among members, affirms it. Our Concepts of Service, binding our fellowship through the World Service Conference, assures it; offering hope and recovery to all people everywhere affected by a drinking problem.

Who is Al-Anon ( Alanon) for?

You are invited to try an Al-Anon meeting here at St Paul; meetings are held in the church basement at 9:30AM on Saturdays (enter door off parking lot).
