In 2012, Mar-Lu-Ridge completed renovations to Dining Hall 2 and renamed the space “Agape Hall”. We are grateful to those who supported us through the Capital Campaigns of the Delaware-Maryland Synod and the Metro-DC Synod, as well as through individual gifts.

Total Need – $600,000

Raised to Date – $375,000

Remaining Need – $225,000

The building includes a larger meeting and dining space complete with a patio for small gatherings and reflection. The facility is fully handicapped accessible and energy efficient while still maintaining the elements that make it “Mar-Lu-Ridge-y.” There are many ways you can help!
