3 Welcome to Lord of Life Lutheran Church You have heard many times that the Church is far more than a building. Most Christians also find that being a part of a church family is more than worshiping on Saturday night or Sunday morning. We have found that spiritual well being and involvement in the life of the Christian family go hand in hand. For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. Romans 12:4-5 We invite you to become as active as you would like. We understand that different personal situations allow for different levels of participation within the community of Lord of Life. In the following pages you will find a wealth of opportunities for meeting new friends, growing in faith and engaging the world in Christian service. Others will be noted in LifeLines, our monthly newsletter, and the bulletin insert each week. If you are interested in any of these ministries or have further questions, please feel free to call the church office at or you can us at The Holy Spirit gives gifts to all believers. We pray that you will use your gifts, both here at Lord of Life and in the community, to touch people with the love of Christ. May God bless you, as you are a blessing to others, Pastor Stephen Beyer Pastor Kim Sterner -3-
