Lakewood United Methodist Church is pleased to announce our new pastor, Rev. Patrick Littlefield. Patrick will begin his time with us on July 1. After graduating from Candler School of Theology at Emory University in 2013, he served as Youth Pastor at First UMC Prosper and as a Path1 Resident at Union Coffee. Patrick was involved in leading a Maundy Thursday worship service here at the church a few weeks ago. He was commissioned on the Elder track in June of 2016 and anticipates being ordained in June of 2018. He is married to Erin.

We look forward to meeting both of them and traveling our faith journeys together!

An Easy Way to Help our Homeless Neighbors

Members of Lakewood go to Oak Lawn UMC to serve a meal to the homeless on the first Sunday of each month. If you are doing your spring cleaning and find items no longer being worn, please bring them to the church! When you donate your items, you provide the homeless folks at OLUMC with "new" clothes to wear! The OLUMC Clothes Closet specifically needs sturdy men's jeans, t-shirts, and athletic shoes. 

Thank you for your kindness!
