What are the Sunday morning service times?

We have two distinctly different Sunday morning worship environments every week. The sermon is the same in each, but the location and music are different.

The Real Life service takes place in our Worship Center. A combination of modern hymns and praise and worship music are led by our Lakewood Worship team.



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?

Lakewood Kids Ministry, 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 students go? (6th - 12th Grade)

Lakewood Student Ministry exists to help students live for God, love the church and lead others to Christ. On Sunday mornings, we meet in groups from 9:30-10:45 AM 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. Tyler 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.
