Know God.
There is a variety of ways to KNOW GOD through the adult ministries. Study and growth opportunities through small groups and community initiatives are a focus for us. We welcome all who are interested in learning more about KNOWING GOD through these opportunities.

Adult Sunday Morning Classes

LUMC has three ongoing Adult Sunday School classes which meet Sundays at 11:05 a.m.

ALDERSGATE is made up of people of various ages, occupations and interests. Guests are always welcome. We meet for coffee, conversation, and an organized program in Room 115. Our programs are educational, thought-provoking and sometimes just fun. We study a wide variety of topics: religion, spirituality, health, current events, and social issues, to name a few. No program is complete without an exchange of ideas and a lively discussion. There are several social events each year, including a fall clambake and a Christmas progressive dinner. Other events might be a dinner, movie, game night, or tour.

CHRISTIAN HOMEBUILDERS is a class of seniors who welcome all ages to their programs in the Hospitality Room. Our programs feature speakers, class-led discussions, and study sessions. Socials include a Christmas dinner with a white elephant gift exchange and a June luncheon.

MODERN ADULT DISCIPLE CLASS (the MAD Class) meets off Daniels Hall. Guests are welcome at any time; the class is very informal. We explore a wide range of topics each Sunday — some spiritual, many educational. The usual format is mostly discussions, but periodically we use DVDs. We read and review books covering a wide range of topics with lively but respectful discussions. Socials include apple picking, Christmas pot luck, game nights, family picnics, and attending plays at the Beck Center to name just a few.

Small Groups / Bible Studies

A variety of small groups provide short-term study and fellowship opportunities. Groups meet on Sunday morning and during the week. New topical groups form and short-term studies are held throughout the year.

UNITED METHODIST WOMEN (UMW) meet the first Tuesday of the month at 12:00 noon in the café. There is usually a program. Bring a bag lunch.  (Does not meet during the summer) 

UNITED METHODIST MEN (UMM) usually sponsor a breakfast  the second Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. at the church. There are a variety of speakers. All are welcome.

Lakewood Alive

2017 Lakewood Alive Helping Hands Award

Here is an exerpt from the awards presentation:

“Lakewood United Methodist Church is this year’s recipient of our Collab’s annual year end Helping Hands award. In years past we have recognized individuals and organizations for their leadership, commitment and collaboration in our service areas. This year we recognize and celebrate LUMC’s longstanding dedication to these ideals.

In my five year relationship with this church, I have witnessed their daily commitment to make our world and community a better place. They play host to not only multiple scouting groups, but are there for those most in need. Recovery groups such as AA, OA, and Al-Anon gather here multiple times a week. Community meals are served monthly and until recently they housed Lakewood Meals on Wheels providing 50 meals a day, five days a week. Their congregation serves by taking part each year in Change the World Sunday, sending volunteers to the Twice Blessed Free Store and Cleveland Food Bank and participating in projects with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Lakewood Alive. . . “
