As early as 1936, believing there was a need for closer
cooperation between Lutheran laity and clergy, a group of laymen in the
Washington, DC, metropolitan area decided to organize get-togethers. In 1941,
the group established monthly luncheons, inviting friends and bringing
visitors. The first luncheon was a success, and within three months, every
Lutheran jurisdiction was represented. Formal luncheons ended in December 2015.
Informal luncheon groups will begin in early 2016.

A concern for the low and moderate income elderly in need of
adequate housing moved LLF members to sponsor, in 1960, creation of Fellowship
Square Foundation, Inc. (FSF), a not-for-profit corporation to implement
Federal housing legislation designated to relieve this need. FSF currently has
five buildings on four campuses.
