Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer
Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer was founded in 1903 and is one of Atlanta’s oldest churches. The church initially met at the downtown Atlanta branch of the YMCA, which is now the current location of Underground Atlanta. In 1937, the church moved from the YMCA to its permanent home in Midtown Atlanta. When the pandemic struck in the spring of 2020, the church needed financial assistance and reached out to its Atlantic Capital relationship manager.
“While applying for the PPP loan, our banker Nancy Lewis and the entire Atlantic Capital team worked tirelessly to help us to navigate the challenges of the application process,” said Bob Boyd, Director of Operations and Finance for the Church. “Through their diligent effort, we received the PPP loan proceeds which allowed us to continue the employment of our entire team. Since becoming a customer, Atlantic Capital has always responded quickly and professionally to our banking needs.”
Our partnership with Lutheran Church of the Redeemer began in 2018, and we opened their accounts in early 2019. In addition to providing them with a PPP loan, Atlantic Capital also provides treasury and deposit services for the church.
“Atlantic Capital has been an outstanding financial partner with Lutheran Church of the Redeemer,” notes Boyd.
The church continues to evolve and welcomes everyone from all walks of life. They are well known for their food ministry, serving their Midtown neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity and confronting unstable housing options. They provide a hot meal in a safe and friendly environment to anyone in need every Monday-Friday from 10:30 AM until 11:30 AM. The Lutheran Church has given out over 2 million meals and has no plans of slowing down.
