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!

Help Provide a Thanksgiving Meal to Those in Need

The West Millcreek Food Pantry is collecting "fixings" for the
Thanksgiving holiday meal. As usual, Second Harvest Food
Bank will be providing turkeys. Lakewood will be partnering
with Immanuel Lutheran Church to collect enough gravy for
100 Thanksgiving meals. The gravy can be in jars, cans, or
packets. Please place the gravy in the basket in the Narthex
by Sunday, November 7th. Also, the pantry can use
reusable flat bottom grocery bags. Thank you so much for
your help! If you have questions, feel free to contact Sharon
Swanson or Karen Ericson.

Trick or Treat in the Portico

You are invited to help and to have fun on Halloween Night from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lakewood UMC.  Please bring a card table and chair along with many little brown lunch bags with candy inside.  We do the bags so that children are not digging into a pile of candy with their hands.  (COVID!) If you cannot personally come that night, you may drop off some candy for the neighborhood children at Lakewood UMC by Friday, October 29. Contact Pam Anthony or Marty Reddinger  (Sponsored by the Outreach Committee).
