Construction of Lodge Underway

January 24th, 2019

Lutherdale held a Ground Breaking Service on September 15, 2018. Gas and electric lines were rerouted, and excavation for the foundation officially began in October. Forms for the foundation were built, concrete poured, and masonry work has begun. The entire foundation is nearly complete.


In late spring, the spancrete will arrive, followed by the modular bedroom wings. ELCA Mission Builders, alongside Lutherdale volunteers, will then work to complete the siding, roof, and The Great Hall, Conference Room, and Welcome Center this summer. The basement apartments will be completed during Phase 2.

Generous gifts and pledges towards the Share the Adventure Campaign have accumulated to almost $1.5 million. This is wonderful progress! We are so thankful for those who have supported the campaign in this initial phase. The campaign has been blessed by individual pledges of $500,000, $300,000, and $100,000, as well as several pledges in the range of $25,000-$75,000. We have also received many smaller gifts and pledges. Through these leadership gifts, our campaign is off to our wonderful start as we seek to open new ministry at Lutherdale.
