Letter from the Pastor

m.r._desk

Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Lakewood Baptist Church web site. You are an answer to our prayers in the very real world, as we have been praying to have this chance to introduce ourselves, and encourage you with the truth of God’s love in the present day.

Lakewood is a family of real people, striving to live out their faith on a daily basis. We are committed to the reality that without love, we are without our very reason for existence. So if you're not presently attending another church please know that you will be loved here should you choose to visit. Guest parking is directly in front of the church, and greeters will be happy to show you the many opportunities that we have here for the whole family.

We have two services on Sunday mornings and each has it’s own style. Our Contemporary Service is at 9:00 and our Blended Service is at 11:00. Along with the Worship Services we offer our Bible Fellowship Classes at 10:00 and they are geared for all ages. I can’t invite you here without celebrating our Choirs and Orchestra as they have to be seen in person to appreciate. If you love music we have you covered here at Lakewood as we have truly been blessed with talent in all areas of the Music Department.

Our ministry programs are geared to serve all ages from newborn to senior adults. Our
Child Development Center serves the community with a Christian based childcare for children 6 weeks to 4 years old. Children enjoy a full field of opportunities including A.W.A.N.A. and Wet Wednesday events. Our youth have all types of activities from camps to mission trips both local and to the country of Belize. Small group Bible studies and missions as well as all types of fellowship are ready for both young adults and those who have enjoyed being alive a bit longer than the rest of us. Our Choirs and music teams are well known and have traveled throughout the eastern United States performing.

So what I am trying to say is this. We have a place reserved for you no matter what your age or Worship preference. We have a slogan here at Lakewood that is really lived out in the day to day ministry of our Church. Welcome Home! It is our prayer that your first visit will be a homecoming! And the beginning of friendships that will both encourage and uplift you with the truth of God’s love for you.

Brother M.R.
