Serve

One of the best ways to get connected at any church is to spend time on a team with other people. Lakeside has no shortage of opportunities for you to join a team. Production, working with kids, building and construction, aesthetics, grounds, coffee, hospitality . . .

Just drop us a line and tell us what you're interested in. We will do our best to get you connected with the right people. 

If you aren’t sure where you want to serve, consider attending our S.H.A.P.E. Workshop.
