What is the Lutheran
LLF is an organization for women and men, both lay and clergy, active in
the Nation's Capital area. As early as 1936, feeling there was a definite
need for closer cooperation between Lutheran laity and clergy, a group of
laymen in the Washington, DC. Metropolitan area, organized to hold meetings
that would bring pastors and laity closer together. Due to jurisdictional
differences as well as ministerial difficulties, very little success was
achieved until the fall of 1941. Then the group met and decided to hold a

Washington, DC, published in 1999.]
Today, more than 70 years later, the Lutheran Lay Fellowship of
Metropolitan Washington takes pride in knowing that every night, 365 nights
each year, more than 700 low income seniors and disabled persons live in safety
and friendship in four high rises owned and managed by Fellowship Square
Foundation, Inc. By means of annual scholarships and grants, LLF also supports
various college and seminary students; it also provides ushering services for
major inter-Lutheran events. But most of all, LLF is known far and wide as a
place to hear stimulating speakers on timely topics and to make friends from
other Lutheran congregationsfriendships that last for decades!
