Say YES at Lakeside Central
There are a variety of opportunities available at Lakeside Central. No matter what you like to do or how you’re gifted, there’s something for you to do. Being part of a church family means that no one gets left out – everyone has something to do. So if you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve got two suggestions:
- Pick something. Just scroll through the list, find something that interests you and go for it. We don’t expect a lifetime commitment to any one thing, and we’re happy to give you opportunities to try new experiences. So pick something and give it a shot.
- Connect with a member of our staff team. We’d be happy to chat with you. Simply click here to get started.
Are you a people person? Do you like to meet people? Be the first to welcome guests as soon as they arrive, answer any questions they might have, and make sure everyone (the newcomer and the regular attender) feels welcome!

We are looking for Facilitators and Hosts to lead our Support Groups, as well as a Food Coordinator, Kitchen Help, Event Planner and Database Coordinator. Training and supports are all provided.
