Luther Memorial Church’s building project harnesses the synergy among community, college, and congregation to preserve our rich history, meet modern-day needs, and create space for transformative community engagement. The building design includes the addition of wings on the east and west sides of the sanctuary building as well as a restoration of the sanctuary which signifies a wholistic approach to life: mind, body, and spirit.
Architecturally, to enter the sanctuary, one must go over a bridge. This is not only a metaphor for the Danes who crossed an ocean to make a life here; it is also a metaphor for the entire project as the congregation’s mission is all about creating bridges – inviting people in, providing space for strengthening relationships, deepening faith, learning together, and serving each other and the community. It is a demonstration of our commitment to live out our mission for many years to come. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey.
