At times, we all need support and encouragement through life’s changes and challenges. Here at Lakeside, our Family Care Ministry responds to various life circumstances that people within our Lakeside family experience. We come alongside them to provide support, encouragement and prayers as well as practical needs such as meals and visits. We also refer people to other support programs offered in the church such as GriefWalk, DivorceCare, Celebrate Recovery and Journey Counselling Services.
Our ministry includes:
We extend love, comfort, and compassion to those who are in the hospital, at home recovering from illness or surgery, or who are undergoing medical treatments. We also provide support to those who have lost a loved one. We pray for individuals, call, send cards, co-ordinate meals, deliver fruit baskets and visit them to help meet some of their practical needs and provide encouragement during this time.
We offer prayer support to people. We are committed to the power of prayer and we encourage people within our Lakeside family to give us the opportunity to lift them up in prayer. We communicate prayer requests to the:
- Lakeside staff during their Tuesday prayer time
- Wednesday morning prayer team
- Friday morning Downtown prayer group
- Lakeside prayer chain
We co-ordinate and provide food and hospitality when a funeral is hosted at Lakeside Church.
