A LETTER FROM ROGER
Many of you, the friends and family who are close to Lutheran Life Communities, have heard talk of thoughtful growth for a few years. The talk has been driven by two truths and one common message.
More will be required, and Lutheran Life Communities is faithfully preparing communities to serve tomorrow – today!
Today, you can see it happening: a new rehabilitation and therapy environment at both the Lutheran Home and St. Pauls House, 103 new Villa Homes and Greenview Terrace Suites at Wittenberg Village, a full-scale model of the resort lifestyle residents will enjoy at The Arlington of Naples, Luther Oaks nearing its capacity as the newest Lutheran Life Community, the healthcare pavilion at Pleasant View being remodeled to begin redevelopment that will bring Hearthstone Assisted Living and all new Villa Homes to its campus. It is all happening.
It is happening because it has to happen, and God is providing the people and opportunity to make it happen. Current residents, volunteers, family members, friend, donors, professionals and board members are all living out our shared mission: empowering vibrant, grace-filled living across all generations.
God is working through people like you and me. Could there be anything more awesome and inspiring at the same time? We have been given the opportunity to do something great in God’s name, to build communities in God’s name, to build Lutheran Life Communities. I am so thankful for this opportunity and all of the people involved in it.
Throughout this web site, I’d like you to get to know some of those people who bring the “community” to Lutheran Life Communities. I hope you will see yourself in this community!
Together, our mission calls us to promote abundant opportunities to celebrate and encourage one another’s physical, spiritual and emotional wellness, recognizing abundant gifts in each day. We are to do this each and every day, and across all generations. Our organization’s vision for growth is in faithful preparation for the next generation.
I assure you, Lutheran Life Communities is growing carefully and prayerfully. We are diligent in considering partnerships with existing senior care providers and new community development. It is that diligence and the success of every community that will ensure the continued growth of this ministry and service of Christ through Lutheran Life Communities.
I invite you to visit the Lutheran Life Community nearest you. Take a look around. See what is happening. Better yet, get involved in what is happening. Be a part of empowering vibrant, grace-filled living across all generations.
