"Where is your church building?"
We are thrilled to have this church building here at 1006 Ogden Ave in downtown Lisle. We are located just 1 mile west of I-355 and Ogden and ¼ mile East of Rt. 53 and Ogden. Our building has long been The historic 1st Congregational Church that was originally started in Downers Grove in 1842. Yes, you read that right, 1842! Although we have no official connection to that church we honor the history and the desire of those early member who sacrificed to plant a church in DuPage county.Although we are a new church in an old building we believe God does new things in vintage spaces. We honor the continued efforts of the local church reaching out to our cities proclaiming the gospel for nearly 175 years… that’s no small thing.
"Where can I get Prayer?"
Prayer Ministry is offered following each service in the Sanctuary.
Prayer is at the center of all that we do as Christians. If you have something pressing on your heart and would like someone to pray with you, meet with a member of our prayer team at the front of the Sanctuary after any service. They consider it an honor to pray with you. In addition you will receive a weekly program with a connection card in it, the back of the card is available for you to write any prayer needs down, then simply place the card in the offering at the end of the service and it will be given to our prayer ministers.
"Worship and a life-changing message"
The weekend worship experience at The Life is comprised of two primary elements: powerful worship and a life-changing message. Our band takes us on a journey that creatively connects depth and beauty to a vibrant and energetic atmosphere. You are welcome to sing along or sit and enjoy the great music as The Life band worships Jesus. But more than just entertainment, our music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear and respond to the teaching from the Bible.
Worshipping and learning in community each weekend with others is one of the best ways to re-align yourself with God. Honestly, just showing up is a great way to get moving in the right direction.
"What is your children’s program like?"
Life Kid’s, our children’s ministry, is available for infants through Grade 5. If you would like your child to participate in our Life Kids ministry, plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to the service to get registered and allow time for you to get to your seat in sanctuary.

"Where do I enter?"
When you enter the church, it is best for our guests to enter through the west parking lot entrance. From there our hosts will be happy to direct you to the Café, Kids check-in or the Sanctuary.
"What should I expect when I visit?"
Each weekend at The Life you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with exciting, contemporary worship music mixed with some fresh takes on old hymns. The messages are practical, relevant and always life giving. You’ll also find a printed outline for notes in your program guide that will help you make the most of each week’s teaching with response action steps to apply to your life. Children are well cared for in a loving, quality Nursery/Preschool and fun-filled Elementary classes.
"What should I wear?"
You’ll find everything from skinny jeans to pleated pants and high heels to flats. Honestly, come in what is comfortable for you, because at The Life we’re more interested in you than what you wear.
"What time do you meet on Sunday?"
We have three service options for you to choose from each Sunday; at 9:00, 10:20 and 11:40 a.m. Our Sunday experience typically lasts 65 minutes.
Please plan to arrive about 10 minutes early to get your children checked in and/or grab a free cup of coffee, tea or bottled water. Our pastors would love the chance to meet you and are always in the café area before the service. Also, feel free to take your coffee with you to enjoy.
