Joy Coe was recently hired to help Lutheridge, Lutherock, and Lutheranch become more intentional in serving non-traditional retreat groups.

Lutheranch is located just one hour west of Atlanta off of I-20 in Tallapoosa, Georgia. Featuring 519 acres, Lutheranch has beautiful rolling hills, two small lakes, and a picturesque creek. This newly acquired site is still under development. Off-road biking and hiking trails are being developed and charted. Fishing is already available in the stocked lakes. In addition, Lutheranch has a brand-new Group Interaction Course. The two story Holy Trinity Retreat Center includes two meeting rooms, eight bedrooms, and seven bathrooms. The brand new McKanna-Sandrock Retreat Center serves groups of 20 to 80 adults or up to 100 youth who will enjoy fellowship and the comfort of the new 41-room facility. The McKanna-Sandrock Retreat Center offers full food service and a variety of meeting options. All meeting spaces include a screen or a white board and LCD projectors are available upon request.

Special gift needs

People from across the country choose to make special gifts to keep the ministry strong. Annual fund gifts provide the support needed to keep fees low, provide scholarships, and launch new programs. Special giving opportunities are available now at Lutheranch as we seek to build the new Adult Retreat Center and to pay off the remaining debt on the land acquisition.
