We’re so happy that you’re here and ready to take some important next steps. Our vision for Lakeside is to be a community helping people discover and fully follow Jesus, and we want you to be a part of that too.
We want you to get to know people. We want you to feel accepted. We want you to feel encouraged. We want you to grow. We want you to encounter God. We want your faith to explode. And, as Rick Warren (author of The Purpose Driven Life) puts it, we want you to be a belonger, not just a believer.
So, how does that happen? How do you really belong here? It’s as simple as showing up and joining us in the work we’re called to do – which is all about loving people. There are a number of ways to get involved (they’re in no particular order), so pick one and let’s get started.
But before you do, make sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter which will give you important updates and information about the church, Sunday gatherings, and events. The emails come out once a week on Monday…and you can unsubscribe at any time.
Once you’ve made the decision to fully follow Jesus, the next step is baptism; it’s a outward expression of faith. We celebrate baptisms throughout the year during our Sunday morning gatherings. If you’d like to be baptized (or would like more information), fill out this quick form and we’ll be in touch.SIGN UP
We believe that life change is best facilitated in small groups. Why? Simply, God created us to live in community. We were created to have a relationship with Him and with others. Genuine life change occurs within the context of relationships.
At Lakeside, we desire to see people grow in their faith to a place where they are fully following Jesus. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we have people, tools and resources to help you along the way. One of the best places to begin is with the Spiritual Health Assessment and Spiritual Health Planner.GET THE PLANNER
We love it when people serve with enthusiasm in roles they’re passionate about and in areas where they’re gifted. Volunteering your time on a Sunday morning or during the week is a great way to meet new people.
Lakeside Missions is focused on working globally and locally in partnership with local leaders and missionaries to help make a difference in the lives of people in our community and in third world countries.
Alpha is widely acknowledged as the very best overview and introduction to the Christian faith available today. Alpha provides a wonderful opportunity to ask and explore questions that may be new to you, and questions that you may have avoided in the past.
Get together with people who are in the same stage of life or who share similiar interests. Maybe that’s praying together, checking out our singles ministry, the 55+ club (for those who are young at heart), our Wednesday night youth group, or get to know other families with young kids. There are a wide variety of people and groups here.
Want to grow your faith? The Nine is a 9-minute daily devotion (plus an action day where you can implement what you’ve studied over the week) based on the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control). Get growing!
We’ve got lots of them – breakfasts, dessert nights, movie nights, youth events, all-nighters – the list goes on. These events are designed to help you connect with other people and may help you grow in your walk with God. And sometimes we just like to have fun!
