An ELCA Church serving the Augusta, Georgia area

Lutheranch – A New Ministry

Update: Bowe Strickland is happy to announce that as of Sunday, October 20th, we had 30 pledges totaling $20,000. That is a great start to this great fundraising campaign.

We sent a letter to the congregation prepared by Bowe Strickland about an important new ministry. If you didn’t receive it or have a chance to read it then we’re providing it again. Here’s a link to the Lutheranch Facebook page and website.



Dear Member of Resurrection Lutheran Church,

One of the finest ministries we provide to children and families in the Church is providing “a place apart” through Christian outdoor ministries. Since the ministries of Lutheridge and Lutherock have served the Southeastern United States for more than 50 years, our camps have provided settings where Christ’s love has been shared, where faith has been nurtured and where lives of children and families have been strengthened in faith.

Now as we celebrate the acquisition and beginning ministry at Lutheranch, near Tallapoosa, Georgia, we look forward to the construction of the first ministry facility there. The proposed Multi-use Retreat Center and Dining Hall will welcome and comfortably serve both youth and adults from across the Southeastern Synod. A special project has been undertaken across the Southeastern Synod to fund this effort and make this new facility a reality.

Over the past decades, the ministry at Lutheridge has been important to many of our Resurrection members, as campers and confirmands, counselors and staff, participants in youth weekend “getaways”, and workshop participants. The development of similar ministries in Western Georgia will foster opportunities for growth for more members of our wider Southeastern Synod family.

During the next five weeks, you will learn more about this important effort, called “Standing on the Promise,” to make this Christian outdoor ministry a vital and accessible resource for all. We pray that our commitment to ministry will encourage you to become involved as we learn more about this exciting opportunity in the weeks ahead.

Yours in Christ,

Bowe Strickland
