Launching Logos

Logos PLM Banner-2

I am excited to announce Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries’ latest project, Logos Lutheran, in Center City.

Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries seeks to establish a presence in Center City among a people our Heavenly Father loves and has sent His Son to redeem.

The board and staff at Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries seek to serve Christ and take His Word to the people of Philadelphia. We do not proclaim just any words but The Word, Christ Jesus, God and man (John 1:1).

Christ Jesus loves His creation and came to live among the people He had made. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

To focus our eyes on Christ, the Word made flesh, we are calling this project Logos Lutheran with the Greek word lógos (meaning word) at the center.

What is Logos Lutheran?

We seek to proclaim the Word of God and bring His sacraments to the city. There is a shortage of the Gospel of Christ in the midst of a rapidly growing young adult community.

We are beginning our work in Center City with services that proclaim the saving grace of the One who was made flesh and won the salvation of the world on the cross. We pray that God will draw young people and families to hear of Christ and eventually that Logos Lutheran will also offer the sacraments as an official church plant.

Why does Center City Philadelphia need Logos Lutheran?

From its beginning, the Board of Directors has recognized the tremendous need for Lutheran outreach in Center City Philadelphia where there has never been a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregation. While working on other projects, the Board has looked for opportunities to reach the people living, working, and studying in Center City with the Gospel of Christ. The area is home to thousands of students, young professionals, and families.

Over the past three years, the initial phase of the Logos Lutheran project has taken shape. We have identified a central location on Broad Street in Center City and have begun to gather a core group of regular attendees
