The Lakeside Church
Gather together. Grow in faith. Go into the world.
WELCOME TO TLC
The Lakeside Church is a place where all people are welcomed, valued and loved. Our focus is on being a family church that reaches out to the lost and hurting in our community, our nation and the world with the love of Christ. Join us on Sundays at 10:30 am in-person (RSVP required) or online, and check out our mid-week gatherings.
NEW: RSVP REQUIRED TO ATTEND SERVICE
As you are aware, the Ontario government is temporarily moving us back into Step Two resulting in us having to register for Sunday service moving forward. Our attendance is growing and so it is super important that you pre-register your family members for the service prior to Sunday. We will be closing the link after 140 people have registered. We encourage family members of the same household and social bubbles to register together in order to optimize the seating arrangements for our in-person services.
HAPPENING THIS JANUARY AT TLC ...
Every January, many of us commit to break bad habits, restore broken relationships, and be "better" people, but most of us soon forget our good-intended resolutions. We mean well. But life gets busy. We return to our old habits. To that which is comfortable and doesn't require so much sacrifice. But this year at TLC, we want something better. Something new. Something that we stick with. Will you join us in doing a new thing this year?
You see, we can make all the resolutions we want, but we can't change ourselves. We can say we want to pray more, or give more or serve more and do missions more but that won’t happen unless we are willing to offer our lives to God. When we do that, He will change us. Romans 12:2 says, "be transformed by the renewing of your mind." The renewing of our mind requires inward change and comes from the Holy Spirit at work in us. It requires diligence on our part. It requires changing our thoughts, our priorities, and goals to be aligned with those of Christ.
We are starting a new message series called: “Why Do We Do That?” Over the next four weeks we are going to be looking at why do we do certain things as a church - pray, give, serve and do missions. This year TLC, we would like to collectively as a church and individually, pray more, give more, serve more and do missions more.
Our Missions Focus for the month of January is Teen Challenge Jamaica (TCJ). TCJ operates a 12-month in-residence alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation program in Kingston, Jamaica. They offer help and hope to those struggling with alcoholism and/or addiction to other drugs. Those in addiction, their family and friends, begin their restoration at Teen Challenge Jamaica.

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

Arts & Skills Ministry
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.
