  • Sunday Sermon - January 14th

    Joyfully Connecting People to the Love of Jesus!That's how we describe our mission at Lakeshore. But what does it mean to witness to the love of Jesus as we are full of joy? And how is joy a defining characteristic of us as followers of Jesus? This Sunday, we continue our Epiphany series A Transformed Life with the message, "Intoxicating Joy", based on John 2:1-12.

  • AGAPE

    Members of Lakeshore Fellowship may be familiar with AGAPE. If not, this is a special account of which members can financially designate funds toward; in order to support other Lakeshore Fellowship members that may have dire financial needs. (This account previously was financially funded by Scrip, however, funds from Scrip are now supporting our roofing project.) We have a team that manages AGAPE and analyzes each need as they come forward. Applications for support are available in the church office.

    If you have the means and feel led to support AGAPE, please note your contribution for "AGAPE" when utilizing your giving envelopes (or somehow note your contribution). Thank you!
