We’re glad you’re visiting us here online! We genuinely hope you find our site to be an honest expression of who we are as a church. You should know we truly love our church and the East Orlando Community we serve.
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.
Jesus said in John 10:10, ‘I have come to bring LIFE in all its fullness.’ It is our hope that all who encounter LifeSong will learn to live and have such a life.
As a church, we embrace specific values that guide and shape our efforts to develop passionate followers of Jesus…
It would be our prayer and hope that your experience with LifeSong would bring you closer on your journey to knowing a God who cares deeply for you.
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!
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!
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!
