Do you want to sing with the band but don’t have time for a
weekly rehearsal? I get it. We are all busy.
Do you have five minutes? If you do, you can join us!
On Sunday mornings, arrive and be ready by 10:15am for a quick run through of our opening song.
Our opening song is usually an up-tempo number meant to get people excited and ready to engage with the service while we
shout out a praise to the Lord. I hope to see you there!!

SOUPer Bowl of Caring Results: God is Good!
In recent weeks, our Being the Church congregations followed Jesus’ teaching to “feed my lambs,” with our SOUPer Bowl of Caring efforts. We raised $605.18, and collected boxes upon boxes upon boxes of cereal, pasta, veggies, soups, cookies, chili, and so much more. Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness in responding to the call to serve our neighbors. 100% of all donations are already being put to use by the Broken Loaf Food Pantry, a ministry of the Lakewood 1st UMC. All donations were delivered on the evening of Ash Wednesday by some of our youth. Rev. Mary Ann Pickard greeted the delivery team!
Confirmation: A Faith Exploration
Who? Youth currently in 8th grade and older
When? Meeting bi-weekly on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m., starting March 5.

This past fall, we met and discussed the confirmation journey for our older youth (8th grade and older). We have set the plans in motion! Typically, we offer confirmation once every two years so most youth have 2-3 times when they can join the journey. Please reach out if you have any questions. Please sign up all youth who will join the journey. It begins Sunday, March 5.

Join Pastor Melinda for a meaningful morning of church and service. Wear pants and closed-toed shoes. Bring a water bottle if needed. Age: We are on our feet and working quickly the whole time in a warehouse, so we ask that you take that into consideration. Minimum age requirement is a hard-working 9-year-old. Otherwise 10+. We will close our time together with simple prayer and communion.
Coffee hour provides refreshments directly following Worship. Coffee Hour serves more than the purpose of fulfilling snack attacks and satisfying caffeine withdrawal.
It brings us together for fellowship!!
If you are looking for an opportunity to foster fellowship among our congregation and guests, this may be the ministry just for you!
