“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body— Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit. For the body does not consist of one member but of many.” – 1 Corinthians 12:12-14
What can I expect during service?
A typical service at Lakeside Family Church starts with music, followed by announcements and offering, then the sermon message and ending with a final song before adjourning. Each week isn’t always the same, as there are often praise reports and special prayer requests sprinkled in, as well as an occasional skit, special song or video. Also, on the first Sunday of every month we celebrate communion.
Do I have to take part in communion?
Lakeside Family Church observes Communion on the first Sunday of every month. Communion is offered to anyone who proclaims Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, but it is perfectly fine to not take part.
What is the music like?
We worship the Lord using several different kinds of music — from hymns to contemporary to acapella numbers. There’s something for everyone!
How should I dress?
However you want to! Some members of our congregation wear their Sunday best, others wear jeans and a T-shirt. No matter what you are wearing, you will fit right in!
Do I need to give money during offering?
No. You should not feel obligated to give in our offering unless you feel in your heart that you would like to. We certainly welcome it, but it is not mandatory.
What about my kids?
Bring them! The kids can stay in the church during the entire service if they’d like, but in our back classrooms we offer Sunday School and have a nursery area for the little ones. No matter your child’s age we have something going on for them!
What if I want to become a member?
If you feel led by the Holy Spirit to become a member of Lakeside Family Church, great! We would ask that you contact Pastor Chris Peddie or one of our elders while at church and they can discuss with you how to become a member.
