What to Expect
If you are new to Lakewood Park, we will do our best to make your first visit to our church a pleasant experience. Here are some details that you may find helpful.
1. How do I get to the church?
2. Where do I park and enter the building?
Upon entering our expansive campus, you will find our main entrance is located at the back of our building. Large parking areas and clearly marked, handicapped accessible doors are located on the NORTH and EAST sides of our building. Our greeters will be the first people you meet as you enter the building whether you are entering from the gymnasium, worship center or dining room doors. They are well trained in navigating you through our large facility. If you need help finding our nursery, locating an Adult Bible Study or finding the Worship Center, they will help you find your way.
3. What are the worship services like?
We believe that worship is taking God into consideration in everything we do. As a demonstration of this belief, a typical service at Lakewood Park begins with our worship team leading in biblical, God honoring hymns and worship songs that remind us of who He is and our need for Him in everything that we do.
We also believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word to us. You can expect to be taught straight from the Bible in a manner that is true to the text, relevant to our culture and inspiring to your soul.
4. What about my children?
While you are participating in the worship service and Adult Bible Studies, your children will be well cared for in an energizing, fun, safe and clean environment. Nursery is available for infants through preschool age children. Lakewood Park Children’s Ministry for school-aged children seeks to immerse kids into God’s story with age-appropriate Bible lessons enhanced with snacks and fun activities. Through the Gospel Project for Kids, they will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story of God’s redemption.
We also have a weekly program for Infants and Toddlers and Kid’s Club for K-5th graders that meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00.
5. What do you have for middle school and high school students?
On Sundays, we offer a Teen Bible Study for both middle and high school students.
We also have a weekly youth ministry program for Middle School and High School that meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00.

6. Will I have to say anything, give anything, or be singled out in any way?
If you are visiting, you will not be singled out or pressured to do anything that might make you uncomfortable. We would appreciate it if you would fill out the Connection Card in the seat-back pockets so we can assist you in any future visits to Lakewood Park.
7. What should I wear?
Some people come dressed in jeans while others come dressed business casual. If you prefer to wear a coat and tie or a dress, that’s fine too. You will discover that we are more concerned about our relationship with God and with each other than with what we are wearing.
8. How do I get connected?
Getting connected can sometimes be a hard process. We are committed to giving you clearly defined steps to connect so that the process is one that you will appreciate and enjoy. Click here to learn more.
9. I’m a new Christian. What’s next?
It is at the core of who we are to walk with new believers as they grow and mature. Our “Next Steps” will provide you with a comprehensive look at how you can connect and grow in your relationship with God and in your relationship with the community of believers at Lakewood Park.
