We know coming to a new church is difficult, particularly if you do not know what to expect. There is too much to write about on this page, but here are a  few things you can expect on your first visit. 

Neighborhood Church

Lakeside is a neighborhood church. We have grown up with the West Lake Houston neighborhoods. We are made up of your friends and neighbors and are a great place for families and those looking for a community to grow in faith.  


Come as you are

Lakeside is made up of ordinary people who are desiring a closer relationship to God and what matters. How you dress is not important and everyone is welcome. Expect to see people dressed from very casual to in suits. Worship is our focus, not what people are wearing.


Great Music

Lakeside Worship is led by a band made up of guitars, keyboards, drums, bass and more. We play music the most modern to the most ancient throughout the service. We are an informal service but maintain elements of worship that has been with the Christian church for thousands of years.


Dynamic Message

We work hard to deliver dynamic messages that are engaging and relevant. The weekly message is not just in the sermon, but delivered throughout the entire worship though music, video, prayer, communion and baptism. Our goal is to enable true worship of God that fills you with God’s presence and purposes.


United Methodist Church

Lakeside is a United Methodist Church and is part of a world-wide denominations that has over 11 million members. We work together with Methodist churches in our area for mission and ministry as well as churches all over the world. We believe that our strong connection makes us more able to answer God’s call.
