ON SUNDAY MAY 19, 2013 The People of Lakewood United Methodist Church and the Citizens of Lakewood Ohio are invited to join together to change lives. We will join with other United Methodists around the globe to change the world on May 19, 2013
Change the World is a movement to connect United Methodists in service with simple acts of kindness to build community locally and globally.
Lakewood United Methodist Church will participate by joining with the Lakewood Department of Aging and Lakewood Alive to go to homes around our community and do light repairs, yard work such as mow lawns, clean and prune flowerbeds and plant flowers.
Lakewood and Cove United Methodist Churches participated once again in the CHANGE THE WORLD Event. CHANGE THE WORLD is an annual event that the United Methodist Church promotes by encouraging congregations to participate in simple acts of kindness to build community locally and to fight malaria globally.
For the second year in a row, we had over 80 youth, adults and children who worked on 15 projects throughout our community, Lakewood Ohio. The church collaborated with local community development organization, LakewoodAlive and City of Lakewood through the Department of Aging, as well as others to identify houses that needed extra care. The projects included, mowing, weeding, tree cutting, pruning, yard clean up, planting flowers, painting a garage, debris clean up, painting a porch, porch repairs, and other minor repairs.
Many of the homeowners were elderly having a difficult time caring for the yards; others were for families who were simply in difficult situations and needed some extra hands. The goal of this project was to simply go out into the community and begin to change the world right in our own back yard through simple acts of kindness, hard work and some sweat!
Lakewood United Methodist Church will continue its effort to reach out into the community for the second year with our Faith in the Neighborhood Project. This summer we will spend 4 days painting and doing minor repairs and yard work on a home. This project will once again be done in collaboration with LakewoodAlive.If you are interested in learning more about the United Methodist Church or participating in our outreach programs contact Pastor Laura Jaissle

Summer Sermon Series
Questions God Asks Begins Sunday, June 2nd
Traditional Worship at 9:45am
Impact Worship at 11:05am
Good questions enable us to listen to our own hearts. They do not threaten or interrogate or accuse. God’s questions are good questions. They invite us to reflect on what is happening in our lives and to put into words what we discover there. They help us to share what is deepest in us. When we do this with God, we are drawn into a deep and meaningful conversation with God. Sermon Series is based on the book “Questions God Asks Us”, by Trevor Hudson
