At LifeSong, we believe that the we gather together in community with one another, and with God, we learn to live the kind of life Jesus offers in John 10:10 – a life of fullness, a deeply satisfying and better life than we could have ever dreamed of doing on our own!

So whether you’ve just moved to Orlando and are looking for a church family, or maybe you’re just trying to figure the God thing out, we believe LifeSong could be a great place for you to start.  We don’t promise to be perfect, but we do believe God is calling you to a life of fullness with Him.

We’d love to have you join us!

Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11 AM

And stay around for a couple minutes after service for “Hello.”

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM OUR COMMUNITY?

Live Modern Music, Good Conversation, & Practical Faith

Our services are a mix of great live music and teaching that aims to connect who we are to the story of God in the Bible. And we believe that church is more than just what happens in a service, so we invite you to join us before and/or after service in our “Commons” area for a great cup of coffee, a good conversation, and an amazing indoor playground for the kids!

Come As You Are…

No matter who you are, or who you’ve been – you are welcome here! We think you’ll find that our community is made up of people from all kinds of backgrounds and life experiences. And none of us have it all together! So, come on in and grab a free cup of coffee (or don’t if that’s not your thing)… we can’t wait to meet you!

Want to be part of a church that cares about your family and your kids will love coming to?

LifeSong Kids is designed specifically for your kids!
Your children will have a great time learning about God in an energetic, totally secure environment. LifeSong Kids is open during both the 9:30 & 11am service times.
Nursery care is available for our smallest of visitors.

Also, be sure to arrive early – our indoor playground opens a half hour before each service and stays open after service as well!
