Nestled in the trees and projecting dramatically from the side of the hill, the New Chapel Center is the focal point of the Lutherhill facility. Two levels of space provide the capability for a variety of activities and worship. The formal entry, drive and parking are surrounded by beautiful oak trees leading directly to the Chapel doors. Progressing into the Chapel, spectacular views of the grounds and countryside greet the visitor from the glass enclosed nave and surrounding activity deck. Doors open from all sides to the deck allowing activities to flow in and out of the multi-function chapel space. Below the chapel, at ground level, there is a kitchen, conference room, two multi-function classrooms, restrooms, storage, and access to the large covered exterior activity spaces.
In the fall of 2004 Lutherhill Ministries broke ground on it’s first new building in 20 years. The Carby Chapel Center was made possible by the generosity and foresight of Mr. E. Carby (who named Lutherhill in his Estate,) and the gifts of many throughout the synod. It was built in partnership with Roesler Associates Inc./ Architects and Mission Builders, along with volunteers from around the synod. The Chapel Center has approximately 5,000 sq/ft of indoor space for worship and meeting, along with an additional 5,000 sq/ft of outdoor patio and porch. We are excited for this new birth in our ministry and for the gift it will prove to be to our synod.
