The 2020 Lord of Life Pumpkin Run is now here!

Lord of Life is having their first ever (hopefully first of many) Virtual 5K Run/Walk.
This event will support the LOLYO (Lord of Life Youth Organization)! All proceeds from this fundraiser will help send the LOLYO members to The Gathering and on other mission trips.
Each participant in the Pumpkin Run will receive their very own medal and race bib for only a $25 entry fee.
You can run/walk in your neighborhood, with your family, responsibly with friends, on any of Michigan's many trails and paths, or any other way you can think of. And, because this is virtual, you can do it anytime you want to.
Sign up with this google form link Lord of Life 2020 Pumpkin Run and follow the link in the form to make payment on our website.

If you don't want to physically participate, you can always sponsor a youth member! Use the link and choose to sponsor and then fill in your donation amount on the payment screen.

Discovering the Love and Security That Only Jesus Offers

Jesus is a refuge in times of trouble. When the storms of life are brewing, trust in the Lord of Life to see you through. At Lord of Life, we want to introduce you to our friend and savior, Jesus Christ. As a church, we place extreme value on community and are dedicated to fostering relationships with God and understanding God's Word. While we are devout followers, we do believe it is necessary to ask questions and explore the teachings of Jesus and the Bible further. It's as much about asking why, as it is about asking how. Lord of Life is a member of the Southeast Michigan Synod branch of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Lord of Life was established on May 21, 1972. 

Join our loving and supportive church family for Sunday worship.

About Us

The congregation of Lord of Life in Brighton, Michigan, gathers for Sunday worship at 9:30 a.m., with Sunday School for ages 3 to 11 and complimentary nursery care during worship hours.

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.
