Announcement from the LWLBC Board

After months of thoughtful study, prayer, dialogue and research, and along with the diligence of the Strategic Planning Task Force, today our Board of Directors announces our intentions to sell the Luther Dell camp property. 

 We are incredibly grateful for the 21 years of ministry we’ve provided at that site in Remer, MN.  We give thanks for all of the campers, retreaters, volunteers, families and church staff that traveled down that 5 mile dirt road to Luther Dell.  We also give thanks for all of the summer staff and fulltime staff who dedicated their energy and compassion to making the Luther Dell experience so special.   We will cherish all of our Luther Dell memories.  They have been an incredibly important part of this organization’s history.  God used people in mighty ways in this ministry. 

 After a careful and deliberate time, recognizing the downward trend of camping and retreat usage at Luther Dell, we have reached a decision that closes one door, but propels and encourages us to move forward in a new direction.  We will be praying for wisdom as we develop plans to better accommodate youth and families at Ox Lake, Wilderness Canoe Base, and Wapo. We cast our eyes ahead with anticipation, content in the knowledge that God will continue to guide and bless these efforts.  We are grateful and excited for opportunities to grow and serve people in new ways.  Thank you for your continued support as we continue to build places of grace, forming people of faith.
