Serving Our Community With a Vibrant Church Life

Lord of Life in Brighton, Michigan, has activities for young and old. Join us for Bible studies and great family events.

Annual Christmas Program

Our Annual Christmas Program/Silent Auction/Potluck Dinner was held on Sunday, December 8, 2019. The Program featured a presentation by the Lord of Life Sunday School Children: a musical performance by the choral group, Center Stage, from Milford High School; and a visit from Santa! Items for auction, or raffle, were provided by Lord of Life Members, as well as a number of local Merchants. This is always a great evening for young and old, serving to kick off a Blessed Christmas Season.

Youth Group News

We are off to another great year of LOLYO (Lord of Life Youth Organization). Please consider helping us. As we move into our fourth active year, we are always looking for people who might enjoy running an activity, event, game, or meeting with the awesome teens that make up LOLYO.

Foster relationships and help build a multi-generation faith web for the youth. It is important to us that we, as youth leaders, are consistent mentors and role models. We also would like them to build their circle of support by getting to know other adults within the congregation.

2019 Mission Trip

A trip to Louisville, KY, took place July 14-19, 2019. Nineteen adults and youth  participated in the trip organized by YouthWorks, with whom we have taken trips in the past. The trip was one of spiritual growth while serving others in various locations established by such agencies as the Salvation Army (Child Care in the inner city); Catholic Charities (literacy and other assitance to help refugee children and adults transition into our culture); Dare to Care Food Bank; Thrift and Thrive (re-sale of household goods and clothing); Franciscan Soup Kitchen; Inner City Senior Center. These volunteer organizations all help local folks struggling in  poverty, as well as refugees from violent countries. A week in this community certainly drives home the need to love and understand folks from cultures different from our own.

Confirmation Overview

Confirmation is a place to explore who you are as a child of God. "Here-we-Stand," is a two-year curriculum that helps effectively prepare our students for Lutheran Confirmation. The curriculum is from Augsburg Fortress, an ELCA Lutheran publisher.

Each week, students experience a connection between the class content and their Affirmation of Baptism. Students also better understand how their faith connects to real life, while the expanded small group material encourages relationship building between the learners and mentors. Solid biblical and theological content also helps connect students with the Lutheran heritage. Video clips, music, and other multimedia resources make the material more approachable for today's young learners.

Kids Playing

VBS (Vacation Bible School)

Lord of Life VBS gathers children, youth helpers, and adults, for a week of Bible stories, crafts, snacks, outdoor soccer, and the grand finale picnic. We collect an offering each day that is donated to people in need. In 2019, over $350 was raised toward our goal of providing funds for flood relief in the U.S. Midwest, and in the Louisville, KY, area, the destination for our 2019 Mission Trip. If students meet their fundraising goal, they normally get to bring squirt guns/howitzers to the last day's picnic, to drench teachers; due to rain this year, they had a chance to apply cream pies to faces!
