ASWO's Purpose Statement
We, as diverse women of God, respond to God’s love by sharing the Gospel, cherishing creation, and encouraging each other’s growth in faith.
Have you ever considered doing more with ASWO?
Why not serve on the board to help inspire others around the state?
Travel funds are available for women around the state to be involved- the ASWO Board of Directors meets primarily via telephone, but we do have at least one in-person meeting annually. This has usually been in Anchorage.

Ever wonder what our ASWO logo means?
The mountains represent the quiet strength women bring to our organization. The mountains are the source of life-giving waters that bring us prosperity and fill our needs --as in the baptismal waters, we rejoice in the promise of our salvation. The meandering river that supports the water lily represents the diversities and distances we conquer in Alaska as we strive to do the work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
