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. What can you expect at TLC? Here is a little snapshot of what's at the heart of The Lakeside Church.
UPDATE: WE'RE BACK! Can you believe the news? We can have in-person service at 15% capacity which means our 2nd year anniversary service can be in-person. We are so excited to be able to celebrate the incredible goodness of God with you. You will not need to pre-register for the service but will be required to have your temperature taken and sign in (as we have in the past). Join us on Sundays at 10:30 am in-person or online.
DISCOVER YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS
Have you ever wondered what your spiritual giftings are? As we explore the topic of Community this June, and dig deeper into what belonging to a church body looks like, we wanted to offer our TLC family an opportunity to discover what spiritual gifts the Lord has blessed us with. Please visit https://giftstest.com/test. and complete the survey. The gifts test is designed to be taken quickly during a single sitting, and typically takes 5 minutes to complete. For accurate results, please try to be as open and honest as possible. We encourage you to share your assessment results with one of our pastors or elders.
HAPPENING THIS JUNE AT TLC ...
At TLC we love COMMUNITY. While the phrase "no man is an island" doesn't come from the Bible, it certainly goes along with what the Word of God has to say about people and our need for community.
While on earth, Jesus gathered a group of people to join Him in His journey of changing the world. Jesus had the power to go about His journey alone, but He chose to live in community with His disciples. This served as an example to us of the importance of living in community. After all, we were not created to do life or ministry alone.
The early church, described in Acts 2, is a great example of how the church was formed to be a community. Whatever the believers did, they did it together and built community in the process. Being a part of the church community helps us in many ways. We have friends to encourage us when we feel down, someone to help when we struggle with a problem, it helps us stay committed to our Christian faith, and we can also be ourselves. When we acknowledge our need for each other and do our best to live in community with other believers, it lays the foundation for unity. We are better together!
Our Services in June: We are excited that we can gather in person once again! Please join us on Sundays at 10:30 am in-person or online on Facebook, YouTube or our website as we dig into this new exciting series! Did you miss Sunday's service? Click here to watch the recording.

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.
