OUR MISSION

 
 
We know many are seeking to know God more and have a deeper relationship with Him. You might be wondering how you can do this at Lakeside. It is our mission to help you become who God is calling you to be. At Lakeside, we desire to equip you for your life with God through a three-pronged strategy of judgment-free, come-as-you-are WELCOMING, life-transforming GROWTH in God, and together making an impact in our community and world through SERVICE.
We believe our mission is to:
 
Glorify God and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by welcoming all neighbors home to grow in faith and serve Christ. 
 

Welcome

 
(Really, we mean it.)
All are welcome at Lakeside–this means everyone, regardless of age, race, marital status, sexual orientation, financial status, or political views. You are welcome if you have already given your life to Christ or if you haven’t. We welcome hearts full of faith and heads full of questions. We welcome ALL who are hungry for the deepest life found in surrender and service to God.

Grow

 
Following Christ can be hard! We believe in the power of good friends helping one another live into the life God would have them live. At Lakeside, we strengthen our families, seeking to grow the faith of our youngest babies to our oldest members. We have classes and Grow Groups for all ages. If you are looking for a supportive community to help you grow in your faith, Lakeside is the place.

Serve

 
We believe that faith in Christ means serving our community. Lakeside strives to make a difference by helping those in need. We are heavily involved in mentoring youth, supporting kids in the local foster system, ongoing hurricane recovery efforts, and partnering with local organizations on many other fronts. Christ came to change lives, and we want to be part of what He is doing.

OUR STORY

Lakeside has been part of our community for many years. We were among the first churches begun locally over a decade ago. We took as our foundation the story of when Jesus feeds over 5,000 people with only a little food that his few followers had brought with them. Like that story, we began small and have seen God do miraculous things. Lakeside started as a gathering among a few friends in a front room in Summerwood, later moved to a nearby school, eventually built a building, and has now become the spiritual home for hundreds of people. God has blessed us every step of the way, and we feel his blessing still at work in our unfolding future.
 
At Lakeside, you won’t find a lot of pretensions. Worship is not a light and smoke show. Nearly everyone you see on Sundays at Lakeside is a volunteer and lives in our community. It’s a simple church with a simple focus on bringing people like you together by welcoming them home to grow in faith and serve Jesus Christ.
 
 
 

OUR TEAM

 
Lakeside is powered by the Holy Spirit working through God’s people. We have a dedicated and experienced ministry team that works with our members each week to bring life-transforming worship, ministries and mission.
