Luther Memorial

Des Moines, IA

Located on the picturesque campus of Grand View University, Luther Memorial Church stands as testament to the Danish history of Des Moines, Iowa. From its construction in 1917, Luther Memorial has played an instrumental role in the life of the campus and its wider community. Today, Luther Memorial partners with Grand View University to offer several programs such as Viking Kids Club, an afterschool program for area elementary students.

With a $15,000 grant from the Nordic Heritage Churches Program, Luther Memorial raised $45,000 in matching funds to install new insulation in the church roof. As a part of a larger restoration project, the installation served as a first step as the congregation pursued a fire sprinkler system and new roofing.
