An Introduction to Lakewood UMC's Ministry Focus


Beginning Sunday, August 13

At Lakewood UMC, we are looking forward to a special time of focusing

on our ministry goals of Reaching, Growing, and Serving together as a church family. 

We understand that these are scripture-driven goals that apply to all of us

as we seek to live out our Christian faith each day.  


You will be learning about these church wide goals over the next few weeks as we strive to: 

1. Reach the next generation for Christ through greater opportunities for sharing our faith; 

2. Broaden and deepen our discipleship pathways, and;  

3. Strive to broaden our mission involvement through service.
