Spend Your Time, Your Way
At SpiriTrust Lutheran®, The Village at Luther Ridge, you can live the life you love, and shed the responsibilities you don’t. No more mowing, shoveling or spending time in the kitchen (unless you want to).
The conveniences that make retirement living easy and fulfilling are right on campus, including a sit-down bistro that serves hot, fresh, made-to-order meals, beauty salon, fitness center, aquatic programs through the YMCA, community garden and chapel. The hub of our neighborhood is the Fleck Community Center, a favorite gathering place for a wide array of social, recreational and educational activities. Best of all, you’ll enjoy all of these amenities for the most affordable monthly fees in the area.

No Chores. Many Choices.
Stroll through our park-like campus; pop over to Baltimore or Washington, D.C., to see a show; watch the ducks swim with their little ones; check out our popular annual car show; or just enjoy the stunning mountain views from your patio. It’s all part of Spirit360®, a program that fully integrates seven dimensions of wellness to encompass every aspect of life, supporting active aging and well-being so individuals can live as fully as possible.
