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!

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.
