As a religious community, Greensboro is known for being the largest Quaker community in the south. Plus, the south, in general, is known for its Baptist churches. However, Greensboro is extremely diverse in religious institutions and has a surprising number of Lutheran churches. Featured above is Christ Lutheran Church at the corner of Lawndale and Pisgah Church Road. The building looks like it may have been a bank at one time; the brick building is beautiful with that blue sky as a backdrop.
Thrivent Financial, with Lutheran roots in the midwest, is a Fortune 500 financial services organization. Thrivent Financial has a presence in North Carolina, including a Guilford-Rockingham County Chapter. It is rather interesting to imagine a church in the insurance/investment business. That means they are taking care of members in this life AND the after life! Happy Sunday, dear readers.
