    devotions for

    an unordinary time

    Beginning May 4, devotions written by members of our congregation will be shared each Monday through Friday over the coming weeks. The devotions will be sent by email and posted on our website.
    We always enjoy and benefit from the devotions that you share during Advent and Lent.  In this unusual time, we also need to hear about the ways in which God is present among us now.

    Many thanks to Carol and Chuck Taylor for their willingness to coordinate this ministry.  Additional devotions may be submitted directly to the church at:


  • Lakeside Ladies'

    book club

         During these past three years our Lakeside Ladies’ Book Club has tried to become more informed on racial issues by reading and discussing such books as Just Mercy, Between the World and Me, and Grace Will Lead Us Home.  We will not meet in July and August but will come together again on Tuesday, September 1.  Debra Kincheloe will facilitate our discussion of How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi.  During these summer months each of us will also be choosing books on our own to read . . . books written by black authors and poets and other books that will help us better understand issues of race.  We are painfully aware that we need to become more engaged as we become better informed.  Hopefully, reading, reflecting and discussing will lead to acts of justice, kindness and courage.

  • Meditation Group

    The Meditation Group meets on Thursdays at noon in the Parlor of the Education Building.  The psalmist says: "Be still and know that I am God." One way to experience this oneness is through the practice of meditation or centering prayer. When we pray sincerely, we are open to being changed by the very act of prayer itself. Thus the essence of meditation is learning to stand back from ourselves and allow God to come to the forefront of our life. 

  • Lakeside Preschool


    We have openings in the Lakeside Preschool for ages 2 through Pre-K. Contact Rachel Holloman at 252-903-8131 for more information.
