Thank you to all the chairpersons and their committee members for all that they do and make happen here at Lakewood. The past months have been difficult and all of these committees have stepped up to the challenge to keep our Church functioning as close to “normal” as possible!

​​​​​​​​​​​Important Lakewood News
New updates to Lakewood's Mask Policy. The worship committee met last week, with representation from the Health Ministry Team. The decision was made to deem face masks optional. Wear one if you feel better protected, but masks are now optional in worship and in meetings at Lakewood. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we navigated the pandemic. Your cooperation has been greatly appreciated. Prayerfully we are coming out on the other side.


Thank You Pastor Bob!

Thank you Pastor Bob for your 13 years of dedication and hard work at Lakewood. We are truly blessed to have had you as our leader for so many years. We will never forget all of your accomplishments. And congratulations on your retirement! May your retirement years bring you great joy and happiness. Go in peace as you begin the next chapter of your life!
