We gather in dark silence in the education entrance of our building.  The new paschal candle is lit as we move to the worship space, and from dark to light, from sadness to joy.  Baptism will be celebrated, and affirmation of our baptisms. No sermon or communion.  Bring a bell to ring as we uncover the A-word in our worship.

  • Get Involved

    pinwheel full colorAt Lord of Life, all the ministries of the congregation, from international mission trips to our children's choirs, have the common goal of helping people become better disciples of Jesus Christ.

    What's with the Pinwheel?

    We use the image of a pinwheel to organize the ministries of the congregation. By doing so, we hope that it’s easier to get involved at Lord of Life in a way that lets you use your spiritual gifts.

    Look through the tabs to learn more about the "fractals" of the pinwheel, and follow the Read More links in each tab to find a list of specific ministries and upcoming events.
  • Experience God

    pinwheel experience The journey of discipleship always begins with an experience of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. God’s grace is everywhere, falling like rain upon all people. We are more or less conscious of this grace as we go through life. We gather in worship each week to offer God our praise, and to experience God anew through the Word and Sacraments, as well as the hospitality of the community.

    Are you regularly experiencing the awe and unconditional acceptance of God’s grace?

  • Grow

    pinwheel grow For our relationship with God to grow we must be intentional in the use of prayer, scripture and community. Nothing will help you grow closer to God, faster and deeper, than gathering regularly with others to pray, read scripture and talk about your spiritual journey. The mutual accountability that is found in LIFE Groups, ministry teams, care and discussion groups accelerate spiritual growth.

    Are you growing in your discipleship with Christ?

  • Connect

    pinwheel connect There is no one else exactly like you! God uniquely gifted you to be a part of God's “Shalom.” As you discover your unique spiritual gifts, as well as how your unique gifts might be used to God’s glory, you will experience deeper contentment and be empowered to live fully as Jesus’ disciple.

    Have you discovered your spiritual gifts?

  • Mission

    pinwheel mission Everything has been leading you to the point of “taking up your cross and following Jesus” by offering your life for others as his witness. It’s done one act at a time, with words and deeds of kindness and love. Everything else is training, preparation.

    The world knows we are Jesus’ disciples by our love. Where are you serving God and others?

  • Pinwheel +

    We think that all the "pinwheel" ministries are great ways to move toward becoming better disciples of Jesus. But we took a look around our congregation and came to the conclusion that more was needed in order to encourage and support each other, our lay ministry leaders, and the administrative operations of Lord of Life.

    Pastoral Care

    Equipping teams to facilitate pastoral care and prayer within the congregation.
