We’re glad you’ve chosen to find out more about Lakeside! This course is the basic introduction to our church community. Since we have attendees from many different church backgrounds, it was designed to clearly explain who we are and what our church is all about. It is divided into five sections.
Some of you may have already decided to become partners at Lakeside and are taking this seminar as a prerequisite, while some of you may be seeking to find out more about the church in order to make an informed decision.
If you need clarification, please contact us. It is our desire that you complete the course well informed about Lakeside Church.
Once you’ve completed the course, it’s our hope that you understand a little more about what it means to be a follower of Christ, what we believe as a church, the purpose of the church, Lakeside’s history, our vision (and what we’re doing to achieve that), our core values, how we’re structured, and what next steps you need to take.
