A faith family with the foundation of two congregations, Redeemer Lutheran and Peace Lutheran, both in the Flint area.
Peace was originally a church plant of Redeemer and the members or each were not strangers. Redeemer fell on hard times in connection with the economic downturn and plant closings in the 1980's and ended up closing their school. They eventually could no longer afford to heat their building on Atherton Road in Flint and move. Meanwhile Peace Lutheran worshiping at Maple and Van Slyke in Mundy Township was also struggling. They invited Redeemer to come and worship in their building.
The two congregations came together first in fellowship outside of worship and then decided to merge together into one congregation. In 2013 both Redeemer and Peace dissolved their identities and reformed as Lamb of God. With the money from the sale of Redeemer's old building, as well as a generous donation from Mr. John C. Lasko, and pledges from the membership to support the building fund, Lamb of God was able to remodel and expand the original building that was Peace Lutheran Church. They added a new kitchen, expanded the Fellowship Hall, added new Church Offices and meeting rooms, added a new Narthex, and new Worship Sanctuary. While the building program was going on the owners of Schwartz Funeral Home on Hill Road offered a temporary place for Lamb of God to worship.
Lamb of God’s completed Church building opened in 2015. Lamb of God is known throughout the Michigan District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod as one of the few successful mergers of two failing congregations. We owe this to the hand of the LORD who has planted us here to be His witness. We invite you to come and be a part of our story and future!
