Only one service is being held at this time. Please enter at the Chelsea Street entrance and register (for contact tracing purposes, if necessary). Hand sanitizer is available. Please wear your face mask and remember to social distance (6 feet) from non-family members. The pews have been marked off so that we can worship safely while social distancing.

We do have the option of walking as a group at a place of our choosing. Registration envelopes are available in the church office but the easiest method of registering as a member of the team or to donate is on-line.

Ride for the Refuge Join us for a virtual ride to end homelessness.

The pandemic has driven us to change our event this year, but our mission stays the same! We ride to end homelessness for families with children through EUMA’s The Refuge. Won’t you join us – virtually? Plan a bicycle ride with family or friends, gather a team, or go on your own personal ride. It can be done anywhere, anytime, any distance – you choose – during the month of September.

So, please CONSIDER SUPPORTING THIS YEAR'S RIDE FOR THE REFUGE. There are three ways you can do so.

1. Become a rider yourself. You can register and set up a team for yourself, or you’re invited to join team "The Lakewoodians" and help us reach our goal of $1,000. Ambitious, but we can do it. Thanks for your support.

2. Plan a bicycle ride with family or friends, gather a team, or go on your own personal ride. It can be done anywhere, anytime, any distance – you choose – during the month of September.

3. You can simply donate to the cause or support one of the riders on team "The Lakewoodians." Pastor Bob is the only rider registered so far, but ask around and find someone else to support and feel free to donate to them as well.

For more information on how to participate in this year’s Ride for The Refuge, visit https://secure.qgiv.com/event/euma-ride/. Remember, you are invited to join the team “The Lakewoodians.” Help us make homelessness in Erie rare, brief and non-recurring. Your support is helping to make that happen. Thanks for your support. And God bless.

Activities At Lakewood UMC Are Slowly Resuming.

In-person Sunday services has resumed in the sanctuary. For those not comfortable gathering, Sunday services will continue to be posted on YouTube. The office is open but always a good idea to call before you plan to visit to ensure someone is in the office. When visiting the office, there is a sign-in sheet at the 10th Street entrance. (Will be used for contact tracing if needed). Everyone must sign-in and wear a face mask to enter the building. You can still call the church or email us if you need anything. Committees and small groups wishing to meet in-person must contact the office ahead of time to schedule the Fellowship Hall and follow the published guidelines. Finally, we still need your offerings.

To all who gave this past week, THANK YOU!!!

What We Believe

Erie Gives Erie Gives 2020 was another huge success not only surpassing last year’s total amount given (almost $6.3 million this year) but also surpassing the total number of donors (over 11,400). Lakewood United Methodist Church is blessed beyond measure with the continued generosity you have shown not only during Erie Gives 2020 but this entire year during these very challenging times. Online donations for Lakewood totaled $4793. As we wait for the final tabulation of online donations, checks and The Erie Community Foundation prorated match, we want to thank each one of you who remembered Lakewood United Methodist Church during Erie Gives 2020. Your generous donation will go a long way in improving the sanctuary, which is planned for 2022. THANK YOU to all
