Kids Ministry [Kindergarten - 6th Grade]
Our purpose is to reach, teach and keep boys and girls for Christ. We believe every boy and girl can have a personal relationship with Jesus. We have a variety of ministries designed for children to help them understand the Bible and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus. We have a wonderful staff of workers, teachers and leaders. Our Kids Ministry Team is not only gifted in child care and instruction, but more importantly they love children with the love of the Lord.
Student Ministry [7th grade - 8th grade]
We are the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade student ministry led by Pastor Ben May here at Lakeside. The group meets in the Edify room every Sunday right after praise and worship, where we have a preaching service geared specifically for middle schoolers. The transition from the kids church to the youth group can be a very challenging time, so we incorporate food, fellowship, and fun to help the students develop faith and friendships that will last a lifetime. Engaging messages, encouraging small groups, and powerful prayer times paint the picture of what a Sunday morning is like for Reach Middle School.
Student Ministry [High School]
Lakeside Student Nation is the student ministry of Lakeside Assembly of God. We hang out with middle school through senior high students that are committed to loving God and loving people. We are dedicated to being the church, which means using our gifts and abilities to make the love of Jesus known to everyone. We love our Bibles and find our purpose in God's awesome story. At Student Nation we're one big family who worships, serves, laughs and plays together. We are real young people who live authentic lives for Jesus in school, at home, at work, and always over a coffee. So, whether you catch us sledding down an icy hill, tackling each other in whirlyball, or losing ourselves in worship, we're passionate about seeing young people fulfill their purpose in this generation!
Young Adults [18-30]
As a young adult, life can sometimes be a tough place. Not only are many of you trying to figure out who you are and where you are going in life, but you're also working jobs, starting careers, even continuing your education. You want a place where you can connect with others that are experiencing the same pace of life as you are.
Lakeside is challenging you to grab hold of what God is calling you to be. He has an amazing plan for your life. We would like to invite you to come and check out edify, the young adult ministry geared for ages 18-30; we meet every Wednesday from 7-9pm in the edify room. Edify will equip and empower you to face the day-to-day struggles that you are dealing with.
