Becoming a Member

We are excited to introduce you to our church. Lord of Life is a vibrant place to worship, a caring institution and stands as a Christian Leader in the community.

If you are looking for a church home, Lord of Life offers a New Member Orientation 101 class. These classes are for those interested in membership at Lord of Life and those seeking more information on Lord of Life’s mission and ministries. Member Orientation 101 class is a one night event and attendance is required by all who wish to become members of Lord of Life Lutheran Church.


A Membership 201 session is available for those seeking more information about the Lutheran church. If you have been confirmed in an ELCA Lutheran Church and will be transferring your membership from an ELCA Lutheran Congregation, it is not necessary you attend these classes; however, you are highly encouraged to do so.

The following is a breakdown of the three sessions:

  1. Being church together; Why Lutheran? Values & Teachings of the ELCA
  2. An overview of the biblical narrative
  3. Specific readings that compare and contrast the church you came from and the ELCA.  We’ll find plenty of common ground, and discuss what makes the ELCA distinct.

The Reception of New Member Weekend is when individuals officially are members of Lord of Life Lutheran Church. Participation in a New Member service is required for persons to become members. Plan to attend one of our services as we welcome you to your new church home.
