OUR FOCUS IN DECEMBER
HIS NAME SHALL BE CALLED .... Join us as we begin our Christmas series His Name Shall Be Called... Different names for Christ are abundant in scripture, and today's message will be on the Lord's human and most beloved name Jesus. Matthew 1:21 declares: "...she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
As we meditate on the hope, love, joy, and peace of the Advent season, we also want to take time to meditate on how Scripture names Jesus and the implications those names have for our Christian witness in the world.
The Christmas season reminds us that God keeps promises. We don’t need to feel dismayed or discouraged or hopeless, but; instead, we get to engage in anticipatory and participatory hope as we await the coming of Christ and participate in bridging the “already” and the “not yet” of God’s Kingdom.
Our Missions focus for November is TLC's Christmas Benevolent Fund. All November missions will go to the Christmas Benevolent Fund, which is a confidential fund, managed by the Board of Deacons with help from the staff, to help people in our church family in need of financial and material assistance due to illness, unemployment, or some unexpected accident, setback or tragedy. Visit the Missions page to learn more.
TLC'S MISSION & VISION
The Lakeside Church is a community of believers devoted to the Word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to love and build up one another, and to reach people with the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We gather together to worship Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We are motivated to grow in faith and encourage one other to use our gifts for God’s purposes. We are equipped to go and share the good news of freedom, hope and new life in Jesus Christ with our community, country and the world.
No matter what stage of life you are in, or what season you are currently experiencing, TLC has a relevant ministry to support you in your life's journey. We have age-related ministries, activity-based ministries, ministries to mark important milestones, ministries to offer you spiritual and emotional support, and ministries to help build up your faith in Christ Jesus.
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NLT
The Lakeside Church is a missions-minded church. We partner with local, national and international organizations in their missions to go and share the good news of freedom, hope and new life in Jesus Christ with our world. We give so they can go.
We also support the 340 million Christians worldwide who face high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith in Jesus.
Amazingly, the 340 million persecuted believers around the world don’t look to us to end their struggle. Instead, these courageous men and women ask for just two things: Scripture resources and prayers.

CELEBRATING A LIFE WELL LIVED
Pastor Brian baptized me one year ago and provided great comfort when I was sick. He encouraged me to maintain my faith and rely on Jesus. He is a teacher, an older brother, and a protector to me. His warm smile, kindness, and unwavering strength encourage me to keep my faith.
