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.
Our life as a community of Christians begins with and revolves around Sunday morning worship services. Worshipping at Lakewood on a Sunday morning is the best way to get to know us, so come check out one of the following worship experiences this weekend.
