welcome to lakeside!

Our church is Baptist by tradition and heritage. In our worship and practice, we seek to move beyond the label of a denomination to incorporate the richness of other Christian traditions.

In our community service we support many ecumenical ministries that convey God's love

beyond the lines of any denomination. 

We are persons on a journey of faith seeking to be a worshiping and serving community

where the gospel of Jesus Christ is modeled and proclaimed.  We receive members by affirmation of their faith or transfer from other Christian churches. We honor the

previous baptism of persons coming to Lakeside from other Christian denominations.

  • Pastor search

         Upon the retirement of Dr. Jody Wright as Senior Pastor after 25 wonderful years of service and ministry, Lakeside Church is seeking to fill this role with an individual who will appreciate Lakeside's traditions while leading our congregation in a new phase of ministry.

         We hope to attract as our next spiritual leader someone who will respect Lakeside’s foundation for and approach to ministry and who will help us to build upon it to grow and reach out in exciting ways.

         For more information about our congregation and the search process, please visit our Pastor Search page by clicking the button to the right.
