  • Growing together study groups

    Bible study and discussion groups for adults meet on Sunday mornings beginning at 9:45 a.m. in the Education Building. Contact the church office for information about the current learning opportunities.

  • Adult Small Group studies

    We read and study the Bible carefully, listen to sermons about it, and hear people quote (or misquote) it frequently, but scripture is something that is intended to be encountered and lived in community. This spring's Small Group Study will help us practice a shared reading and application of scripture that can help to bring the Bible alive in fresh ways. There is no need  for participants to purchase a book for this five-week discussion group that will meet on Tuesdays by Zoom at 7:00 p.m. or Wednesdays in person at 10:00 a.m. beginning April 18 and 19. Please contact the church office to sign up and provide an email adress.

  • Meditation group

    The Meditation Group meets every other Thursday 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 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. 

  • Vacation Bible School

    Lakeside's children and volunteers join with those from Church of the Good Shepherd, First Presbyterian, St. Andrew's Episcopal, and West Haven Presbyterian each June for a Community VBS.  Lakeside hosts this week of Bible stories, music, games, crafts, and friendship building every third year. Registration information is posted on the home page in the early spring. 

  • Turnage Speaker Series




  • Godwin Library

    Located in the Education Building, just off Sugg Foyer, the Godwin Library offers a variety of resources for education and information, including biblical references, Lakeside historical materials, and a book exchange. It is open before and after Sunday School each Sunday morning and can be utilized during the week by contacting the church office.  The Godwin Library is dedicated in memory of Reverend Clarence Godwin, who served as Lakeside's first pastor from 1955-65.
