About us

Luther Place Memorial Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We are both old and new—built in 1873 and continually seeking ways to be relevant in today’s world. We seek to gather young and old, gay and straight, and racial/ethnic diversity. We value tradition yet embrace change. We are structured, yet spontaneous. We are musical, prayerful, and spiritual. We embrace a lot of tensions, even the classic Lutheran understanding of being both Saint & Sinner. Beyond these tensions, the Luther Place community also provides diverse worship opportunities, food, conversation, and creativity.

Most important, we realize, as Martin Luther once wrote, that

“this life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road.”

We are a dynamic community of believers offering hospitality through worship, fellowship, and ministry. We invite you to join us on this journey.
