We are so glad that you are here
What to Expect:
At The Life Church at Brown Memorial we encourage a 'come as you are' atmosphere. That means, we like khakis and blue jeans. We like loafers, dress shoes and 'tennys.' At our services we sing mix of modern and traditional hymns. Our messages are life applicable and usually include the use of video illustrations as many people are visual learners.
You may say, "But I'm not churchy."
That is great!! We aren't either. We’re just learning to follow Jesus and share His love in practical ways. Wherever you are in life, you’re welcome to come and explore the next step of faith. We don't have it all together, and we don't expect you to either. That is why we gather, to encourage one another and help each other become more like Jesus. Our mission statement is "Rejoicing in the new life jesus gives, we desire to help others also find new life in Christ."
What we do:
We show Grace to others as God has shared his Grace to us. We can not earn our way to heaven by doing good works. It's all by His Grace that we can even call ourselves His children (Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 2: 11 - 12)
We believe in genuine friendships (the community here is awesome!! Come see for yourself if you don't believe me)
We like to laugh.
We like to eat (check out our Sunday breakfast at 9am before the service.)
We are not religious. We enjoy down to earth spirituality which is made possible because of Christ.
We are simple
We are culturally relevant
We like to have fun
We offer help for people in our community from all walks of life.
What we don't do:
We don't look down on anyone else because we recognize our own sinfulness and need for Christ and desire for others to experience that Grace and transforming life.
We won't make you stand up or raise your hand if you visit. We will just ask you to fill out a connecting card so that we can better serve you.
We won't bug you to get involved so don't sweat it!
We won't make you feel guilty if you have been away from the church for a while or have never been to church. We like to think of ourselves as a church for people that don't like church.
So do come and check us out sometime. If you have questions, feel free to send an email to and someone will be more than happy to answer any question that you have. (Except maybe questions involving calculus. We don't like calculus.)
