Questions

How do I become a member?

You don't have to be a member to worship or take part in activities at Lord of Life. (You don't even have to be Lutheran!) If you're new to the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) and decide that you would like to become a member, please speak with the pastor or call the church office at 847-895-8877 for more information. We also receive members by transfer from other ELCA congregations. Whatever your background, we welcome you to Lord of Life and look forward to sharing our faith, our ministry, and our fellowship events with you.
