|We invite you to learn about Lakewood Congregational Church, a member of the United Church of Christ, a Protestant denomination rich in heritage and vibrant in its extravagant welcome to all people. We are the “God Is Still Speaking” Church which celebrates the traditions of the past while not imprisoning God within ancient creeds. We use Scriptures as the foundation of our faith and also seek to discern how God is still speaking today. We are a church of great diversity of thought with an even greater unity in purpose: to share the Good News of God’s love for all people and to be a transforming ministry in our community and the world. Our Mission Statement proclaims our common goal. We strive to be a welcoming, worshiping community of faith, helping people discover and deepen their relationship with God, growing as disciples of Christ and reaching out in faith and loving service.
In keeping with the spirit of our Mission Statement, Lakewood Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, is an Open and Affirming congregation. We welcome people of all sexual orientation, ages, differing abilities, and ethnic, economic, and racial backgrounds into the full life and ministry of our church. We declare this in the name of the Still Speaking God, whose Son, Jesus Christ, welcomed all people into God’s circle of grace.
