Lord of Life Lutheran worships jointly with the Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University Lutheran Center, which is located at 2126 Gable Lane in Ames. That’s one block south and one block east of the Iowa State Memorial Union parking garage, which is along Lincoln Way in Campustown.
The University Lutheran Center has recently added more parking, so at Lord of Life there’s always room for one more–even in the parking lot!
Description of worship
At Lord of Life, we follow Christian Liturgy. We celebrate Christ’s last supper, and his words, “do this in memory of me.” We sing, we hear readings from the Bible, we pray, we sing some more. We pray for peace and for those in need. We shake hands and give hugs. And we sing. The whole thing lasts about an hour.
Communion is offered during every Sunday worship service to all whom wish to commune at our Lord’s Table. Children are invited to commune at their parents’ discretion. The Blood of Christ is offered as both wine and grape juice.
How worship teams work
The people of Lord of Life plan our worship services as part of ever-changing worship teams. Each month a different group of Lord of Lifers comes together to volunteer for various duties during the next month’s worship and fellowship. It’s a chance to try something you haven’t done before – perhaps baking communion bread, giving a children’s sermon, providing special music, or making coffee. At Lord of Life there’s always room for one more reader, greeter, usher, singer, deacon … you get the idea!
