Lakeshore Fellowship will go to one worship service as we look at trying something new to Joyfully Connect People Together in the Love of Jesus. We're calling it Worship-Connect. Beginning on Sunday, April 8th, we will worship together at 10:00 am and the service will end at 11:00 am. Then, at 11:15 am everyone is invited to gather at tables in the Worship Center for a soup lunch and to enjoy a time to connect. Each table will have opportunity to discuss and apply the message text. Then people may share any prayer needs before we close in prayer at 12:00 noon. We're excited about this new opportunity to Worship and Connect together!

RENEW Campaign

Members of Lakeshore Fellowship voted to enter into a capital campaign to manage our larger maintenance needs (roof, technology, parking lot). The campaign has been named: RENEW. Brochures are available (RENEW Brochure) to educate you on the campaign, and how we need your help to make it succeed!  Commitment Cards are still being accepted. If you have not yet had the opportunity to fill out a Commitment Card, please prayerfully do so. We would like to collect a card from EACH family-unit here at Lakeshore Fellowship (even if you cannot give at this time). RENEW Commitment Card 

We will be personally contacting all families that do not reply, so all members will have the opportunity to know about our facility needs. Please simply let us know.
