I bring greetings to you from Lutherhill Ministries – the outdoor ministry of our synod and your church. Since 1954, Lutherhill has been a place set apart for rest and play – for people of all ages. Whether you’re drawn to the live oak trees and rolling hills of Lutherhill in La Grange or a walk to the seawall among the waves in Galveston – know that you are welcome, any time to visit us at the hill or at the beach.
I also bring a word of gratitude! Lutherhill is dependent on the faithful partnerships of congregations like yours and I am so grateful for you!
