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.
Rehearsals 7:45pm in the Choir Room. New voices always welcome!! The Chancel Choir will sing through May 29th and then the Summer Choir will take over (rehearsal is just before the 9:45am service on Sunday)
