What do I wear?

At Lakewood, you will find a variety of dress styles. There are many people who like to dress up, and there are many who like to be more casual in their dress. You will see nice suits all the way to jeans. So, we would encourage you to dress as you are used to in other churches or whatever makes you comfortable.

Where do I park?

We have plenty of places to park, and we have signs at each of our entrances with directions to our venues and buildings around campus, so you can make sure you’re in the right place. We have handicap parking, visitor parking, senior adult parking (SAP), and First Impressions Volunteers on golf carts driving around, if you need a lift to and from your vehicle on Sundays.

What do I do when I get there?

You will be welcomed at the doors by Greeters, feel free to ask directions or where the Information Centers are located. There you will receive a welcome gift and information pertinent for you and your family. You can also get assistance finding the service or class you want to attend. Welcome to Lakewood!

Where do I take my kids?

Our children’s ministry, Kids Cove, welcomes kids of all ages throughout the year, and focuses on teaching Bible truths, concepts and stories. For more info on specific times and locations for each age group:


Where do my teenagers go?

Our student ministry, Fusion, exists to help students live for God, love the church and lead others to Christ. On Sunday mornings, we meet for Fusion Groups from 9:30-10:30am in The Lodge. Students are divided by grade and gender and meet with adult leaders to connect deeper with God and one another through Bible study, prayer and fellowship.


How do I get plugged in to the church?

We regularly offer our Discover Class led by our Senior Pastor, Dr. Smiley, for anyone that is interested in learning about who we are and where we are going as a church. In Discover Class, we provide free lunch and childcare, and you will learn our vision, core values, beliefs, and structure. At the end of class, you will be given the opportunity to become a member of Lakewood.


How do I join a Sunday morning small group or bible study?

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in a Sunday morning group, and they meet all across our campus at the following times:

  • 8:15am
  • 9:30am
  • 11:00am

Here is a list of our current Sunday morning groups: Current Group List.



Wednesday Night Activities are back!


Wednesday evening programs are designed to equip our children in Bible skills and memory, to provide opportunities to engage in missions, and to explore their God-given talents in music, drama, art and technology.



On Wednesday evenings, middle and high school students gather for Fusion from 6:30-8:00pm. Fusion is a worship experience with a live band (led by students and adults) and relevant teaching from God’s Word by one of our student ministry staff. Lodge doors open for all students at 5:30 to hang out with friends, play games or eat in our Lodge Cafe. At 6:30, middle school students will worship together in the Upper Lodge Auditorium while high school students will worship together in the Lower Lodge Auditorium. At 7:30, students will gather in small groups (by grade and gender) with adult leaders to discuss and apply the message they just heard.

Crosspoint Choir

If you’ve ever wanted to join a choir whose sole purpose is praising God and enjoying the company of likeminded people, Crosspoint Worship Choir could be a perfect fit for you. Talent in the Crosspoint Choir ranges from novice voices to professionally trained singers. But the one thing they all have in common is their love of music and a willingness to serve by becoming part of this group.
