The mission of the Lutheran Chautauqua Association is to provide a Lutheran identity through witness, worship, fellowship, and hospitality.
The Lutheran House first floor has been revitalized and is ready to welcome guests for the 2021 Chautauqua Season! Thanks be to God!
Alan Johnson saw the need and provided the initial generous gift in honor of Marilys, his loving wife of 60 years. Board president Bill Schweinfurth declared it was time to move ahead. Pastor Denise Sager designed the space from a new layout and flooring to new furniture and artwork. The first floor committee spent hours reviewing and refining the plan with Pastor Denise. Board nominee Kurt Johnson rendered the room drawings and led the technology upgrade that includes much improved Wi-Fi, a sound system and a large monitor. Many of you responded in faith and gratefulness to provide funds that, when matched, reached our goal of $50,000. A team of volunteer Board members along with Sue & Jerry, Dennis & Heidi Herrit, Kurt & Dave Johnson, Andrew Kirsop and Pastor Denise all together worked over 400 hours at the house to make the vision a reality. What an effort!
We thank everyone for their part in making the Lutheran House a more welcoming and effective place for Lutheran worship, fellowship, hospitality as well as a multifunctional space to serve the greater Chautauqua community.
We look forward to many of you enjoying the revitalized space this summer. A dedication for the space is scheduled for August 20th. More information will be shared as dedication plans are finalized.
About the association
A Note from Jerry and Sue.... Greetings Lutheran House friends, thank you for continued support of the Lutheran House over the past year. As some of you we are approaching our last year as host and hostess at the Lutheran House even though we will still be involved. We want to leave you in good hands when we leave. Every summer for the past five years we have looked forward to seeing all of you and saying “Welcome home!”
If you have active friends at your church that would qualify as first time Chautauquan or for our new diversity scholarship encourage them to apply by Feb 1, 2020. We do not get many applications and would love to see more families or couples apply
