service

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

At Lakewood UMC, we are helping people know Jesus and make Him known. We accomplish this through several opportunities to serve and grow like our Sunday services, Small Groups, volunteering, education, and missions & outreach. By participating in these, we believe there is no better way to experience heart change, life change, and world change.
