Lakeside Involved - A Day of Ministry to Our Community

Join us on Saturday, November 4, as we demonstrate what community means to us as a congregation when we go throughout the city to help other people. There is a project for everyone and we hope everyone will get involved. Click the title above to see a list of projects. Please return the list to the church or call to let us know how you would like to be involved. A continental breakfast and prayer time will be offered in Robbins Hall from 7:30 - 7:50 a.m. so that we can get to our work sites by 8:00 a.m.
Mondays and Thursdays, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. in Robbins Hall
Our after school tutoring and enrichment program for neighborhood children will begin again on Monday, October 16. We will continue to meet on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Each month we'll explore a different theme using literature, creative arts, and field trip opportunities. This month's theme is "Birds of a Different Feather (Can Also Flock Together)!" We'll read about birds, paint birdhouses, make yummy "nest treats," and travel to Sylvan Heights Bird Park. Special thanks to Rebecca Watkins for helping with our math-in-cooking activity and to Terry Martin for helping lead our bird park adventure.

Thursdays at noon - Parlor, 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 centered 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.
Amy Shortt leads a group in meditation on Thursdays at noon in the Parlor.
