Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here! -
2 Cor. 5:17
A Chrysalis weekend is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is open to High School students who are 15 or older, and have completed their freshman year of High School, through Seniors. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers. The objective of Chrysalis is to inspire, challenge, and equip the local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, communities and places of work. Chrysalis lifts up a way for our grace-filled lives to be lived and shared with others.
Join us on December 13th at 12:15 pm at Lakewood UMC's Café for an open discussion about Chrysalis, what it is, and how it can change your life, and bring you closer to the realization of Christ's amazing love for you. Pizza to be provided at 12:15pm. Steve Machovec of Rocky River United Methodist Church to speak at 12:45pm.

Membership at Lakewood United Methodist Church is about discipleship. At Lakewood UMC people do not need to be members to participate in the faith community. All activities, studies, worship services are open to everyone. We are striving as a church to be a place where people deepen their faith and join Jesus in ministry.
Membership is something that we grow into and it is okay if you are not yet at that commitment level. Membership is about a commitment to living as a disciple. It is about becoming a part of a team (the body of Christ) that is seeking to make a difference in the world by making disciples. Joining Lakewood United Methodist Church is the first step you can take in deepening your faith and growing as a disciple.
If you feel you are ready to take the next step toward membership please speak with one of the Pastors and we will guide you through the membership process or feel free to join us at the next Pizza with the Pastors.
