At Lakewood, our greatest desire is to see you connect with others and grow spiritually. We believe you grow to be like Christ as you do life with other people. In addition, we are convinced sustained life-change happens best in the context of a small group.



Join a Sunday Morning Group at Lakewood at 8:15, 9:30, or 11:00.

Sunday Morning Groups

On Sunday mornings, we have groups meeting at Lakewood at 8:15am, 9:30am and 11am. Most of these groups are co-ed, range from 10-40 people and are typically based on age, stage or study topic. We do offer some any age and stage adult classes on Sundays as well. Find a group that you can be a part of on Sunday Mornings!
