Whatever happened to Tiny Tim? Join us for God Bless Us Every One, a musical by Robert Sterling, where we meet familiar characters in a brand new, charming story.
It is Christmas, 1870, and Dr. Timothy Cratchit is about to set sail for a new life in Boston when he learns he has inherited a dilapidated clinic in Whitechapel from old Mr. Scrooge. Before he can leave for America, he must first do his duty as an Englishman and find a doctor to run the clinic. When none can be found, Tim has little choice but to take the job himself -- temporarily, of course. Or is it? Once he meets the pretty but headstrong young nurse who works there, along with the orphans in her care, Tim has to decide between the two very different futures that await him.

We are truly grateful for those of you who have turned in your 2017 commitment cards so far. Over the days ahead, Lakewood is seeking to wrap up the "Loaves and Fishes" period of stewardship commitment. During this time, we have all been asked to pray and reflect about how we can honor and glorify the Lord by way of our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. If you have not done so already, please take a moment this week to fill out and mail your commitment card for 2017. You may also do so online by using the link above. We will also have extra cards available in the worship services this Sunday for your use.
Your help is genuinely appreciated, as is your faithful participation and generosity towards Lakewood United Methodist Church.
At Lakewood, we desire to be a community that invites others into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ by embodying God’s love and grace to the world. Our focus is on making, becoming, and growing as disciples of Jesus Christ who are committed to making a difference in the world. We believe that this happens as we LIVE, LEARN, and LOVE together.
