Oklahoma District Zones MapThe Oklahoma District is comprized of 8 Zones:  Enid, Lawton, Kingfisher, Oklahoma City, Miami,  Panhandle, Ponca City and Tulsa. Each Zone is made up of Societies. Click on the buttons below to visit the Zone pages.

Societies and individual members are the foundation upon which the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is built. The entire LWML program begins with participants at the congregational level.

A zone is a group of societies and individual members in the same geographic area united to promote the object of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League–mission education, mission inspiration, mission service, and mission grants.

The districts–usually conforming to LCMS district boundaries–link individual members, societies, and zones to the LWML. Districts initiate programs and projects as well as implement those of the LWML.
