Welcome to the Lakeside Lutheran Church and Preschool website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers and lovers of the Word of God. Lakeside Lutheran Church and Preschool have a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for services on Sunday to experience for yourself fellowship in Christ.
Taste of Italy!

LWML Craft Day
Due to the overwhelming success of the scarf project, we are going to conduct another craft day led by Celeste Stadler. We are making pictures of various items (outside of church, sea landscapes, your favorite person and flowers). You do not need to be an artist to participate. Also, we will be making an additional 70 scarves with some new designs. Join us on September 6 and 7 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in Meyer Hall.
Friends & Family Sunday
On September 18 we will be celebrating Friends and Family Sunday here at Lakeside! Invitations to join us for worship have been mailed throughout our community. Please be sure to bring a friend or a family member to church that day. It just may change their life and make a positive impact on yours!

We are in our Summer Worship Schedule. Contemporary Service is held in the sanctuary at 9:15 and Traditional Service is at 10:30. Holy Communion will be on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month for both services. Please join us!
