Legacy Giving Options

For over 100 years, generous gifts from members and friends of Luther Memorial sustained the mission of the church. In donating to the capital campaign, you have a chance to further Luther Memorial’s mission while establishing a lasting legacy.  

God is generous to his children. Giving to a church is always meant to be a joyful response to God’s generosity. In 2 Corinthians, the apostle Paul says: “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God can bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” The early church was known for their generosity and God blessed them in a mighty way.  

There are many different ways to leave a lasting impact on Luther Memorial as gifts of cash or non-cash can be given (see below for various options). If you have any question, please contact the church office by phone or email (info@luthermemorialdsm.org).  

Together we Luther Memorial we journey into the next 100 years.
