Women of L.I.F.E.

Lutherans In Fellowship & Evangelism

“Acknowledging that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Divine Head of the Church, and desiring in our day to follow and serve Him, we dedicate ourselves to the furtherance of His Kingdom, by a stewardship of life and service, to the glory of the Triune God.”


We have chosen NOT to be a separate entity unto ourselves. Therefore, we are governed by the constitution of The AALC and have at least one clergy representative on our Commission to safeguard the theological correctness of our Bible studies. We never want to state unknowingly anything that would be contrary to our belief that the BIBLE is truly the divinely inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God.

Each year Women of L.I.F.E. leadership or AALC Pastors have written Bible studies using a 12 month format. Some groups study together monthly, others meet weekly with the same study at their pace. There is a study guide to facilitate discussion and for clarification and correct Biblical answers.

Current and past studies, along with leader guides are available by contacting our Materials Resource Coordinators, Neoma Yount and Mary Jose at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Elk Grove CA (916) 689-7300.

2016-2017 Bible Study

The Rev. Gary Rokenbrodt has written a Bible Study titled “Fragrance of Life” based on 2 Corinthians 2:14-17.

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God’s word; but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.”

Samples of the "Fragrance of Life" Bible Study can be viewed by clicking on the links below.

Books will be printed upon receipt of each order and will be delivered in a timely fashion so that those wishing to begin this study as early as the Fall of 2016 may plan on doing so. Still others may choose to wait till January 2017 to start this study and that, of course, is fine too.

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Elk Grove CA has graciously offered once again to do the printing. We appreciate their generosity and assistance with the printing of our studies.

“Obey the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart.
Remember the great things He has done for you.”

(1 Samuel 12:24)


All confirmed women of The AALC are members of The American Association of Lutheran Churches’ Women of L.I.F.E. It is recognized that some women will serve in areas of Christian service other than the Women’s Commission and congregation circles. Women who serve in the congregation in such areas as: Choir, Sunday School, Altar Guild, Cradle Roll etc. are still a part of The AALC Women of L.I.F.E. It is recognized that some women, because of small children, handicapped, aged or infirmed members of the family may not be able to take responsibilities in other Christian service, at least for awhile. ALL women of the congregation beyond confirmation age; however, ARE the concern of The AALC Women of L.I.F.E. and should be considered in planning.
