*Discipleship Classes: Lakeside provides an annual series of Discipleship Classes for sixth graders as preparation for Christian faith and church membership. The classes are offered for four weeks and are led by the Senior Minister and Associate Minister. We offer these classes as a means of leading our children to Christian faith and church membership.
Over the course of the sessions, participants will learn about the history of the early Church, the basic tenets of our Christian faith, what it means to profess and to live out faith in Christ, how we understand Baptism and Communion, and the responsibilities of church membership. Throughout the course, children are encouraged to discuss these matters with their parents and to learn to articulate their faith in their own words.
At the conclusion of the course participants are encouraged to consider prayerfully when they are ready to make a profession of faith and join the church.
