Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear to worship on Sundays?

Dressing up is NOT a requirement to worship with us at Lord of Life! Some do wear their "Sunday best," while you'll find others dressed in jeans and a casual shirt... wear what is comfortable for YOU! We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.

Is there childcare available during Sunday services?

We welcome our children (all ages/all stages) in worship! And yes, we are expecting some noise and movement; they’re kids! They’re God’s kids! And they’re OUR KIDS! We welcome the opportunity to be together, worship together, and support one another at all stages of life! We have an activity area with tables set up to your right in the Worship Center with busy bags, coloring sheets, small toys, and Kids Bibles for the kids to play, doodle, read and wiggle. Parents are also invited to sit/walk/rock their littles in the narthex area where comfortable couches and pillows are available and still participate in worship. Our nursery area is set up with rocking chair, changing table, and toys. The nursery is a self-serve area available to parents of littles.
