  • Columbarium

    Lakeside dedicated its Columbarium on All Saints Sunday 2002.  Its two walls hold seventy-five niches, and it is set in a beautiful outdoor chapel surrounded by a peaceful prayer garden. In addition to inurnment services, the community is welcome to visit this sacred space to sit, reflect, and pray. For Columbarium policies, click the box to the right.

  • Labyrinth

    Located in the garden area adjacent to the Columbarium, the Lakeside Labyrinth is a place of prayer and reflection. Brothers Trevor and Cameron Graham constructed the Labyrinth and Prayer Garden in 2012 for their Eagle Scout projects after learning about labyrinths on their Youth Pilgrimage.  The ancient symbol of the labyrinth goes back thousands of years and is a metaphor for life and our individual spiritual journey.  It has been found to be an effective prayer tool which reminds us that life has many twists and turns but is ever moving toward God, our Center.  

  • Women's Missions Circles

    Our Women's Missions Circles meet monthly for fellowship, to learn about local missions and ministries, and to participate in mission projects. The Circles have been a vital part of our strong missions heritage: from our church cookbooks, A Taste of Lakeside and Anther Taste of Lakeside, which were created by Circle 10 and have raised thousands of dollars for mission work; to Backpack Buddies which is coordinated by Circle M; to regular visitation to our homebound members; and much more. Contact the church office to find out about Circle meeting times and how you can get involved.

  • Lakeside Ladies Book Club

    The Lakeside Ladies Book Club is a gathering of women who enjoy reading and discussing a variety of engaging literature.  The group meets on the first Tuesday evening each month from September to May in the homes of participants.  

  • Lakeside's Prayer Shawl Ministry offers a way for us to provide a tangible reminder of our prayers to those who are sick, grieving, or facing challenging circumstanes.  Based on the Jewish tradition of wrapping oneself in a shawl to represent God's embrace when we pray, women of the church knit, crochet, or sew shawls, lap blankets, and scarves, praying for the individuals who will receive them as they create.  Contact the church office or Carol Taylor at for more information.





    Calling all could-be, wannabe, and already-are writers to join us on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. in Lakeside’s Parlor.  We’ll gather monthly to explore ideas, share stories, offer suggestions and encouragement. Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life will be our guide. Let us know if you would like to join us!

  • AT



    This fall our At the Table group will begin a new study combining faith and the arts which focuses on the psalms. We invite all who might be interested in joining us to spend time over the summer months reading, reflecting on, and praying with the book of Psalms. When we meet again in September, we will use 150: Finding Your Story in the Psalms by Kevin Adams and Journalling the Psalms: A Guide for Reflection & Prayer by Paula Gooder to deepen our understanding of God and ourselves.
