As Christ followers, we are constantly seeking new ways to serve our community. 

Humble ISD School Board Candidate Forum


As many of you know, Lakeside has begun in recent months a considered outward push to serve our community in new ways, particularly through engagement with our schools. We are proud to be hosting two nights of "Meet the School Board Candidates" Forums on March 26th at 6:30 and April 4th at 6:30. If you are interested in the direction that ISD may take, a good place to start is by getting to know the people running for the School Board. 

Lakeside can also use some help on both nights, as there will be many people in the building and we want to have it run as smoothly as possible. 

You can RSVP on the facebook events March 26th and April 4th

A huge thank you to Sabrina Carr for bringing this opportunity to serve our community to us.  If you know of other ways we can engage with our schools and our community please let me know!
 
This week the message was on The Holy Spirit and was given by Madison Wentworth. If you could not make it to church, I encourage you to listen to message. It was very powerful.
Listen to the sermon
This week's music was:

1. Your Grace is Enough
2.. Fierce
3. God with Us
4. Amen (because he lives)
5. Song of Hope
 
Madison mentioned how important the song God with Us has been to her. Here is Jesus Culture singing the song. 

Small Group Discussion Questions


1. Read John 14:25--31 slowly do any words or phrases stand out to you?

2. The Holy Spirit is God felt in our lives. Have there been times in the past week that you have felt close to God? Times when you felt far?

3. Jesus tells his disciples not to “let their hearts be troubled” and to “not be afraid” (v 27), a difficult task considering what will soon happen to after this story (this is final speech to the disciples before he is taken to be crucified).  He clearly believes that God can sustain us even in difficult times. Has that happened in your life?
