Q: What does the church expect of me after becoming a member?
A: Membership vows include a promise to support the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness. While the practice of our faith may take different expressions for each of us, we do encourage each of our members to take those commitments seriously by getting involved in at least one on-going ministry of our church, as well as finding a Sunday School class, organization, or small group in which to form healthy relationships in Christ.
Q: How can I get involved in the church’s ministries?
A: With over 3300 members, Lakewood is not a small congregation any longer, but there are still plenty of ways in which everyone can find a personal avenue of service. With the exception of a few key administrative and personnel committees, most of our ministry teams are open to all and they welcome new members throughout the year to help in such areas as music and worship, education, children and youth, missions, neighborhood ministries, social witness, and many others. To get involved, contact Betty Christian
, Hector Castelltort
or Meko Ivy
at the church office for the name of the coordinator for the ministry in which you are interested.
Q: What do I need to do to be baptized?
A: Baptism is the basic prerequisite for full membership in The United Methodist Church, serving as a sign of individual commitment to Christ. We believe that it is a mark of inclusion in the covenant community and as such, along with the majority of Christians worldwide, we are pleased to make the sacrament available for those of all ages who are willing to take the baptismal vows or, in the case of an infant, whose parents are willing to make those commitments on their behalf. Most baptisms are performed by sprinkling, though arrangements can be made for immersions for those so desiring. As God is the principal party in baptism, and He does not change or forget His covenant with us, we believe that baptism is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. For this reason, we do not perform re-baptisms, though we are happy to offer a reaffirmation of baptismal vows for those who would like to renew their faith commitments. With a few exceptions, baptisms may be scheduled for most Sundays in any of our services. To arrange baptism for yourself or for a child, please contact Rhonda Aulick
