Who We Are

Judging by our church name, you may be surprised to learn we are not located on a lake. Our name was given by one of the children in a naming contest and designates the place we were born – on the shores of Lake Campau. When we outgrew that first small building, we moved to our present location in 1983 but retained our name.

In one phrase, our mission statement is “Transforming ordinary lives into the extraordinary through Jesus.” The point is that God’s truth and love transforms lives, making a positive difference in this life and the life to come! All we do at Lakeside is an expression of this value.

Our goal, as articulated in our core values, is to have everyone worship with joy, use the gifts God has given them, grow in their faith and obedience, bring Christ to others, and serve in our community and world. In this process we believe we are transformed and God is honored.
