Join us in worship on Sunday, June 11, which will be the last Sunday that Gayle and Dave will be with us! We will honor their 8 years of service at Lakewood with a reception immediately after worship. We will provide finger sandwiches, cake, and punch—you do not need to bring anything but yourself.


Let's Welcome Patrick!

Please plan to be here on Sunday, July 2, so we can welcome our new Senior Pastor, Rev. Patrick Littlefield, and his wife, Erin! We are excited to have him join us that weekend, right before the big Lakewood Independence Day parade. We will stay after worship for lunch and a hymn sing for our own celebration; then Patrick will be on hand to help us decorate our parade float and participate in the parade with us on Tuesday, July 4!
