Welcome to Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Baxter. As you can see, ours is a congregation that enjoys both working and playing together while celebrating our love of the Lord.

Our Church

Lord of Life began as a small charter congregation worshiping in the cafeteria of the local elementary school. One hundred and twenty-five people were in attendance at the first service April 22, 1990.  Later that fall the congregation outgrew the cafeteria, moved their services to the gymnasium, and began a Sunday school program.

Our Family

Today the congregation at Lord of Life is 1300 members strong and worship, during three weekly services, is held in a new 400 seat sanctuary, completed in 2008. We offer activities for children, youth, adults and families. We invite you to join us, and become part of our church family!

A Recent God Moment
July 20, 2017

From Pastor Steve:

In the days (long, long ago) when I was a backpack guide, we had a practice of finding moments during our hikes where we would stop and admire some wonder of creation. Perhaps it was a small plant. Perhaps it was the beautiful vista. Always it was accompanied by wonder and often with the phrase, “Yay, God”. We called them: God Moments.

During the week gone by, I had a God Moment that has stuck with me.

I was so happy to receive the invitation to sing songs and play my guitar for the VBS kids. The group was so cute, so full of positive energy..pure joy.  A real fun bunch to lead.

One song I led was called, “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.”  One little girl had heard it before and interrupted my teaching the song to tell me we should say the word, “Where?” In between all of the lines.  I invited her to have a solo and during the song, we all stopped at the end of each line for her to say, “Where?”

The expression on her face was priceless.

And for me, the real God moment was thinking about the affirmation that came from an entire group giving her the attention.  She drank it in.  What fun.

I thank God for this call to ministry…and I thank you for being in partnership with me in providing places and opportunities like this one – to bring the love of Jesus into a little girl’s life.

God Bless!
