Look at what's happening

By the Lake

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.



    For the members of Lakeside, our Palladian “Window on the World,” Dr. Lehman’s “Go To Be Involved” benediction, and the chancel cross with its colorfully tiled mosaic, are three meaningful expressions of our faith.  Each one is a beautifully crafted representation of beliefs we hold dear.

    During the season of Lent, we will focus on the cross mosaic while piecing together how we, as followers of Christ, understand, find, and learn to live in grace.

    We invite you to contribute a Lenten devotion which is a creative expression of your own faith and understanding of grace.  You may want to share a favorite hymn or poem or write your own inspirational story or verse.  You may choose to sketch a picture of “amazing grace” or submit a photograph of grace in action.  We encourage you to include a passage of scripture, a prayer, or a blessing with your devotion.  Send your devotion to the church at lakesiderm@embarqmail.com or edwardselizabeth@embarqmail.com.

  • Lakeside Ladies'

    book club

            Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7, for a "virtual discussion" of the book, The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott.  We will get together through a Zoom meeting.  If you would like to participate, contact Deborah Wright at deborahwright@embarqmail.com in order to get the login information.

  • Spring Book Study

    Since we cannot gather for study groups in the next few weeks, you are invited to read along with us Kate Bowler's timely and inspiring book, Everything Happens For a Reason and Other Lies I've Loved.  We will schedule a couple of discussion sessions later in the spring as we are able. 

  • 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.
