There are many opportunities for worship, learning, serving, and fellowship at Lakeside. 

Below are some of the latest. To sign up, please complete the Event Registration form under the

Get Involved tab or contact the church office for more information.

  • lakeside ladies book club

          Join us on Tuesday, April 20, at 7:00 p.m. as we meet by Zoom and discuss Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.  Barbara Valentine will facilitate the conversation.  This will be our last meeting before summer break.
          If you would like to join the group, please email Deborah (deborahwright@embarqmail.com) so we can add your email address to the Zoom invitation list.

  • Meditation Group

        The Meditation Group will meet on Thursday, March 25, in the sanctuary.  Focusing on one thing, your breath, can shape how you move through the world and redirect your thoughts.  When life seems so out of control, start with the things you can control.  Start with yourself: your body, your spirit, your mind.  For information, email Amy Shortt at ashortt1975@gmail.com or call the church office at 252-446-0126.  All distancing and sanitizing precautions are observed.

  • care bags for conetoe

    During this Lenten season, we are asking Lakeside families to contribute care bags to assist Anna and LaCount Anderson with their ministry to low-income senior adults in Conetoe. Each bag should contain 2 adult toothbrushes, 1 full-sized tube of toothpaste, 1 pair of white adult-sized crew socks, and 1 bottle of hand sanitizer or package of sanitizing Wet Wipes. Please bring your items to church before Easter and place them in the Ziploc bag that will be provided. If you are providing more than one care bag, place each set of items in a separate bag. We hope to collect 90 bags to be distributed on Wednesday, April 21 with the Anderson’s monthly food distribution ministry. We would like to have at least two Lakeside volunteers to help hand out bags from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. on that day. If you can help, please contact the church office for more information. 

  • Youth & Children's


    Lakeside's Youth & Children  are currently meeting virtually on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. via Zoom. This year's theme, "Near & Far: Sharing Christ's Love Wherever We Are" will help us to learn about ways we can live out our faith close to home and with people everywhere.  We are getting to know missionaries who are from NC and serving all around the world, learning more about the cultures and people they serve, and participating in Bible studies and mission projects to help us live out our own faith each day.  For more information, contact the church office.

  • heartwrks

         Lakeside continues to deliver produce boxes from Ripe Revival Market every other week to eight families in our community.  Our plan is to continue delivering through July, occasionally adding meats and other grocery items.   We are purchasing hams for six of our heARTw❤️rks families for Easter and are adding a spring basket of activities and supplies for some outdoor family fun, along with a beautiful children’s story to explain the meaning of this season.  Many thanks to all who are helping us spread a little Easter joy!
  • Lakeside Preschool


        After months of repairs and refurbishing, our Preschool building is like new!  A recent paint job, new flooring, clearing out old supplies, and reorganizing makes everything look fresh and neat.  The new playground fence is higher and much safer for the children.  Above all, new guidelines provided by the state offer an even healthier, safer, and stimulating environment for the children whose lives we shape.
        In order to meet the needs of local families who must have a safe place for their children while parents are working, the Preschool is open with all of the necessary precautions for Covid 19.  In addition, The Day Care provides much-needed supervision for children in the afternoon.
        There are some spaces available for one, two, three, and four year olds.  If you know a child who would benefit from a Montessori-based preschool experience, please contact Rachel Rachel Holloman at 252-903-8131 for more information.
