Affiliation with Lutheran Churches

Luther Park Community grew out of an affiliation with the Lutheran church more than 100 years ago and Christian compassion remains an integral part of who we are today. We have an ongoing relationship with Lutheran congregations in central Iowa, whose members participate in the Luther Park Auxiliary, support fundraising initiatives, and assist in selecting the Board of Directors.
