What Is an Apostles Build Project?

An Apostles Build project is where people come together to build or fully rehab a Habitat for Humanity house. Each church raises a portion of the funds and provides part of the labor to build a house in partnership with a local family. If you would like to be a part of this project please contact the church office at 216-226-8644 or

Church wide picnic at Lakewood Park on August 20th


At LUMC, people do not need to be members to participate in the faith community. All activities, studies, and 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.

Are you looking for an easy way to support the church’s mission without spending more money? Please consider purchasing Heinens, Giant Eagle, Mitchell’s Ice Cream, and Marc’s gift cards at church on Sundays. The church gets a portion of all the sales. This is great way to gift others and give back at the same time. See Roberta Hayes in the Welcome Area before and after church.
