Serving on Sundays
Sunday worship provides a unique opportunity to lead others into God's presence and serve the worshiping community with the gifts God has given us. Whether you would like to be a greeter, read the Scriptures, light candles as an acolyte, run the PowerPoint or sound system, or assist in leading worship, all are welcome! We will provide training in these areas and would love to see your smiling face serving with us on Sunday morning.
One thing you will quickly notice about Lord of Life is we like to catch up with one another! Join us after worship and enjoy each others company, a cup of good "Lutheran" coffee, and a few snacks. It seems like we have a small buffet every Sunday. If you enjoy cooking, baking, or buying, we'll eat it! Contact Tammy Wilkerson to pick a Sunday or get your name added to the rotation!
Like kids? Love God? We've got a spot for you in Sunday school. From regular teachers to leading crafts, from making music to making kids think, we would like your help raising our kids in faith. Don't know what to say or how to lead? We have a fantastic curriculum and great resources. All we need are willing hands and an open heart. If you can't commit to a year, consider a rotation with other volunteer teachers, or serving as a back-up substitute. Nancy would love to find a spot for you in our Sunday school program, and our kids will love to get to know you better!
Living Water Contemporary Band
"Living Water" is the name of our contemporary band, made up of people who volunteer their gift and joy to worship. They lead us in song every second and fourth Sunday of the month. They meet every Thursday at 7:00pm to practice and have the option of rotating which Sundays they choose to sing or play. The best part: you don't need to make every practice to join the group! If you are interested, please come to practice and share your gift and joy of song with the congregation!

Opportunities During the Week
Lord of Life has an active youth group that meets on Sundays from 6:00-7:30pm. All youth are invited to join us in games, events, Bible study, and time to hang out. If you like to spend time with kids in Jr. or Sr. High, we would love to have you come hang out and get to know our awesome youth. For more information please contact Pastor Amanda.
All ladies of any age are welcome to join us on the second Sunday every month after worship for a time of fellowship focused on Bible study, special presentations, guest speakers, and good connecting time. We're always doing something different. Contact the church office to become involved.
Looking to learn and grow your faith? We want to help. Bible studies are offered Monday mornings at 10:00am at Lord of Life. If that doesn't fit your schedule, contact Pastor Amanda and we can create a new Bible study!
Our Parish Nursing volunteers help the congregation achieve a healthier life in mind, body and spirit. We have a good group that focuses on educating the congregation, taking blood pressure readings, helping sort through medical jargon, and meeting with folks to help with all sorts of health situations. If you are in the medical field, or just want to help please contact Karen or Barb.
