New to Lakeside?

Sunday, Jul 30 / 10:30AM
Pathway is a class for those who are interested in exploring a relationship with Jesus.

Sunday, Aug 6 / 10:30PM
Welcome to Lakeside is a two-part class that will meet Sundays, August 6th & 13th. The class will help you learn about who we are as a Church and what it means to be fully engaged at Lakeside. Join us at 10:30 in the chapel next to the coffee bar.

Group Link

Sunday, Aug 20 / 8:30AM
August 20th, 8:30-12:00 pm Our Community Groups will be starting up again the week of September 10th. Groups at Lakeside meet throughout the week to discuss and apply what we are learning from the weekly Sunday sermon. We believe every Lakesider would benefit from being part of a group. You can think of them as hot houses for spiritual growth, spiritual hospitals for the wounded, a starting point for leaders, a place to belong, and a place to go on mission to our world. On August 20th, from 8:30-12:00 pm, (before, between, and after services) our group leaders will be gathered in the lobby and ready to tell you about their group. It’s a great way for you to decide which group might work for you. We’ll also have a listing of all the groups, leaders, day of week, times, locations, children’s programming, etc. available for you on August 20th!

Sunday, Sep 10 / 12:00AM
Groups will begin this fall the week of September 10th ! Join us on August 20th for Group Link. It's a great way for you to find a group.

Sunday, Sep 24 / 12:00PM
Interested in Lakeside but don’t know how to start getting involved? Join us at Starting Point and meet the staff over an informal meal.

The Refreshing Church: The Considerate Church

The people in Jesus’ day faced total oppression from the Roman Empire. How does an empire grow corrupt, whether Rome or Britain, or any other? What circumstances give rise to the need for revolution? It’s very simple. It’s the absence of love. When we don’t love, when people stop trusting love and acting in love, tyranny and oppression aren't far behind. For the Christian, revolution is never about violence… it’s about acting in love. Love maintains, even builds up, freedom.

The Refreshing Church: The Gracious Church

So much conflict in the church revolves around what he calls “disputable matters.” This phrase can be understood as matters of opinion, matters of preference, matters of doubt, secondary issues. Christians don’t often fight over the big stuff, but instead the non-essentials. Through Romans 14, Paul makes some incredible declarations of how God is at work in the midst of all the turbulence in our lives. Here is some of Paul’s coaching. . . First, accept one-another. Second, trust God’s power. Third, get over yourself. Fourth, get yourself ready.

The Refreshing Church: True Love

If I asked you to audit how you use your time/energy you could make a list. What do you give your best energies to? Is it our Lord? Is it your wife, and family? Is it love?
