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. 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 led 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.

Pastor Dale Hedblad has served as pastor of Lord of Life since 1999. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio. Pastor Dale is a "specialized minister" in the ELCA, and has earned board certification in hospital chaplaincy. Pastor Dale is from a large family and has six brothers and two sisters. He and his wife, Colleen, have a son and daughter-in-law and family, who live in North Carolina. Pastor Dale and Colleen live in nearby Whitmore Lake and absolutely love the community of Brighton.

Our Mission & Meaning

Discipleship: We are modern-day disciples of Jesus Christ, gathered for worship and sent to serve.

Compassion: All people are treated with love, respect, and dignity in the example of our Lord Jesus Christ. "We love because God first loved us" (1 John 4:19).

Hospitality: We are generous people of faith committed to worshiping God in a friendly, accepting, and loving environment.

Commitment to Excellence: In all we aspire to do, we do our very best for God.

Lord of Life is committed to followers and non-followers of God, acting in a compassionate manner. We have learned that loving actions are the most meaningful ways to embody the love of God. We welcome you to join us.
