The congregation of Lord of Life in Brighton, Michigan, gathers for Sunday worship at 9:30 am, with Sunday School for ages 3 to 11 and complimentary nursery care during worship hours. We also share Holy Communion every Sunday followed by a hospitality hour where we get to know one another better. An adult Bible study immediately follows our hospitality hour.
Worship with us as an individual or as a family. Enjoy Sunday services that will edify and uplift you through songs of praise lead by our contemporary praise band.
Your teens will feel welcome in our active youth group for boys and girls in grades 7 through 12. They may also be interested in our engaging confirmation classes. You are more than welcome to join us anytime, and we welcome your calls or emails with questions or comments.
