A Thank You Note from Pastor Tim


Dear Lakeside Family,

I am so very thankful for all of you and want to send out a special thanks to the those of you who serve at Lakeside. I see evidence of God’s grace all around us. I personally want to pause for a moment and say THANK YOU!

When you see people serving at Lakeside this Sunday, pause and thank them for their service to Lakeside and to the Kingdom of God.

You won’t want to miss this Sunday as we continue our LIVINGINCHRIST series. We will be studying Ephesians chapter one, GOD HAS A PLAN. I am personally so jazzed about this passage and what God will do in our lives as we unpack these precious truths from His Word.

Pastor Tim
