Why do we do things the way we do them at Lakeside? Is there a job for me to do here? What are Lakeside’s plans for the future? How did this place get started? Dang, those are good questions. Take another step and bring those up again at our BELONG class.
We believe God is inviting us into something pretty special. Something vibrant. A movement. Jesus called it abundant life. We weren’t made just to exist. And, he wants us to become the best possible version of ourselves. Do you want to know more about that? Come hang out with us at the BECOME class.
Classes are offered 2-3 times a year. Attendance to all three classes is highly recommended, but not required. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What you have to offer the world and your church is specific to you. God made you with unique gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences that influence your contribution. This 3-hour workshop will help you uncover how you have been uniquely shaped to influence your world - and help you discover opportunities both at Lakeside and out in the community where you can use your gifts to make a difference. Typically offered twice a year. For more information email email@example.com.
A successful craftsperson knows the tools they employ in creating their craft. They spend time testing, using, and honing their skills with those tools. Toolbox Meetups are designed to give us practical tools to better practice the crafts of Scripture, Prayer, Generosity, Connection, and Service in order to live a Well-Crafted Life. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Think of Lifecraft as a master class. Master classes are for students of any particular discipline or craft (music, art, design) where they develop their skills in order to become a master—able to teach and pass on the trade.
Jesus passed down the trade to his followers who studied, learned, and became master craftsmen themselves through their relationship with him. Jesus’ followers replicated the process and now we do the same—learning from those who came before us and modeled a well-crafted life.
In this 4-week course we’ll talk about how Jesus followers partner with him to make a change in this broken world. We’ll consider honest and approachable ways to have God-dialogues with others and talk about why relationship is so vital to following Jesus and inviting others to do the same. For more information email email@example.com.
