Movie Night | July 11

Join us for a Special Wednesday Night Live MOVIE NIGHT! We will be watching "I Can Only Imagine" July 11th at 7pm in the Chapel.

It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many, often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven.

This summer small group will integrate open discussion and learning the word to formulate a better knowledge and understanding in the lives of lakeside student nation’s young men.

“for the word of god is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” 
Hebrews 4:12

Bread of Life | July 14

One Saturday each month (rain or snow), Mary Hoskins takes her van to downtown Detroit to give to the homeless. Because the homeless are outside, she cooks and serves the people outside; she and her volunteers prepare food to feed those in need in the area. Alongside her, a team of volunteers from Lakeside takes clothing, hygiene products, bibles, love and smiles and helps her endeavors. They serve the people, give them encouragement and pray with them. Lives are changed as the love of Jesus is shown to people!

Kids Camp | July 16

If you have a son or daughter in 3 rd - 6 th grade, then make sure you send them to camp FAHOLO! It will be July 16 th -20 th (Monday–Friday). As a kid, I (Pastor Ben May) went to camp almost every year, and I can testify personally that camp is an experience worth having! For an entire week your child will be submerged in a godly atmosphere like no other! The cost is $260 per kid which includes, food, lodging, and an unforgettable camp experience where they will grow closer to God than ever before. If you were considering sending your child to a camp this year, I would highly recommend Camp Faholo. Kara May will be at camp all week as a leader if you need anything as well.

If you are interested in signing up for camp, all registrations are done through the online portal at

Hospital Care

James 5:14-15 "Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up.

We believe and continually see the power of prayer here at Lakeside. If you have an upcoming surgery or health need please let us know to lift you up in prayer. Once we are notified of a need it is shared with our Prayer Chain, Tuesday Prayer Team, and Lakeside Leadership.

We will also minister to you before surgery. We have a Hospital Care team of Lay Ministers and Elders that help the pastors by visiting hospitals and nursing homes every week. Once home, after a hospital stay our Lay Ministers will call you weekly to pray with you. If you want to keep a need private just notify the Pastors.

If you have an emergency please let us know, one of the Pastors or Hospital Care Team will do their best to come and pray with you. 

Help us by letting Pastor Randy know of your need. You can reach Pastor Randy at the church office, email at , or call or text his cell at 586-246-4749.
