Luther Place Memorial Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, built in 1873 as a memorial to reconciliation after the Civil War. God’s purpose for our congregation is to grow a Christ-centered inclusive community, led by the Spirit, that proclaims the Gospel’s transforming love and grace and challenges injustice. We continue to discover what this means for our congregation in this ever-changing world, and where we are located – in the Logan Circle neighborhood. We value tradition, yet embrace change. We are structured, yet spontaneous. We are musical, prayerful, and spiritual. We embrace a lot of tensions, including the classic Lutheran understanding of being both saint and sinner.
