Our Engagement and Stewardship Teams want to help members and friends of Luther Place become fully engaged in congregational life. We highlight members of our community who share their talents, time, and treasures to enrich our lives together.

Storytelling is a way for God’s people to grow in their relationship with Jesus. Sharing also draws us closer to our brothers and sisters in Christ.

These are short stories about from Luther Place members.  We invite you to share your story.

Stories appear on the Luther Place website, and our social media accounts. Some stories may be shared in the Sunday Bulletin.  Please include a photo with your written story. Anonymous submissions are okay.

Use the hashtag #IamLutherPlace if you post on your personal social media accounts.  Help spread the word.

To learn more about how you can use your talent, time, and treasures contact the Engagement Team or the Stewardship Team.

Thank you for sharing your story!
