Hear About Past Guest Experiences
“I am so thankful for the hospitality and loving kindness that everyone at Luther’s Lodge has shown to me during my husband’s hospitalization. As travelers from Virginia, we were welcomed with open arms and having this homelike facility available has been such a blessing. May God continue to bless each of you as you provide this help in a time of need.“
“We love the homey atmosphere. I have stayed at Luther’s Lodge several times throughout the last two years. All these times I have had to stay many weeks. This last time, my husband and I were there for almost two months. The fact that it is so close to the medical facilities is great. The staff have been so kind to us, too. We have met some great people while staying there. Also, the wheel chair accessibility is so nice because we can have our son come to the home and just be with us for a few hours. Thank you for providing this incredibly blessed service.”
“Having that beautiful home to come to was so nice. Luther’s Lodge was a warm, welcoming light when life dealt me insecurities and the unknown!!! It provided me the security that I had a wonderful, safe place to sleep and feel the presence of our dear Lord Jesus!!! You are always in my thoughts and prayers and these words don’t even seem like enough. Thank you!”

What does Luther’s Rose represent?
Luther’s Lodge is named after the founder of the Lutheran religion, Martin Luther, who lived in Germany in the 1500’s. He and his wife Katherine were known for welcoming many guests and boarders into their home. We are blessed to be able to carry on this generosity for those who stay with us.
A well-known symbol of our faith is Luther’s Rose, which dates back to the 1520’s. Luther explained that the red heart with the black cross at the center should remind us that the righteous live by faith in Christ the Crucified. The heart rests on a white rose to show that faith gives joy, comfort and peace. The rose is white, not red, because white is the color of heavenly spirits and angels. The white rose stands in a field of blue, the color of heaven, to show that joy in the spirit and in faith in this life is only the beginning of future heavenly joy. Surrounding the sky-blue field is a gold ring to show that happiness and joy in heaven has no end but lasts forever, just as gold is the highest, most noble and precious metal.
