Partnership is our word for “membership.” We believe that it best reflects the relationship between an individual and their church community.
Partnership at Lakeside means that you have a say in the selection of leaders, who in turn will make wise, prayer-based decisions on the direction and operations of the church community.
Partnership is about commitment in a culture that struggles with commitment.
Partnership is important to God.
Partnership is about us knowing who we can count on.
Every team needs a roster – every school an enrolment – every country a census – and every church community needs a group of core people when it comes to commitment. To serve in some of the ministries at Lakeside will require you to be a partner so that there is an accountability relationship.
There are two options. Either complete the Discovering Lakeside course online (at your own pace) or plan to attend a Discovering Lakeside session in person with one of our pastors.
Following successful completion of Discovering Lakeside, you will be invited to a meet and greet session with the Lakeside Elders team where you can ask any questions you may have about the church.
Following the meet and greet, you will have a brief telephone interview with a member of the Lakeside Elders team.
You will be welcomed as a new partner during a Sunday morning gathering along with other new partners.
