I’m New Here

We know when it comes to finding a place to worship, you have a lot of choices. Thank you for considering a visit to Lakewood Way. We know attending a church for the first time can be intimidating and awkward, so we want your experience at Lakewood Way to be pleasant and painless – and something you’ll want to experience again.

What are Sundays like?

Every Sunday we seek to connect to God in meaningful worship and relevant teaching from the Bible. You’ll find plenty of friendly people who treat you like family, without judgment or criticism, and show you the love of Jesus…no matter what! Our dress code is relaxed because we are more interested in who you are than what you’re wearing.

Where do my kids go?

Care is provided every Sunday for infants up to age 2 in our nursery. During the worship service, children ages 2 through 5th grade are welcomed and encouraged to join us for Children’s Church. Our students (6th-12th grade) are encouraged to attend and participate in the worship service.

How’s the music?

Our music is contemporary yet reverent. We blend the latest Christian music with the best of the Christian tradition to create an environment that is meaningful to all.

What’s the preaching like?

Biblical, relevant, and engaging. Our pastor offers Christ-centered sermons, explaining God’s Word and how it relates to our lives. You can click here to listen to past sermons.

Will you single me out? 

No. We do not make guests stand up, or introduce themselves, or anything else that would make you feel awkward or receive unwanted attention. If you are a first-time guest, we would love for you to fill out a connection card. Don’t worry, no one will call you or come by your house – that’s our “Hassle-Free Guarantee.” One of our pastors will send you a letter to thank you for joining us, but that is all.

How do you handle offering?

As a guest, please know you are not expected to give an offering. Offerings are made by the Lakewood Way Family as part of our commitment to God and the church. If you would like to give, there will be a time of receiving the offering during the worship service. You can place your offering in the plate as it is passed. You can also give online.

Need more information?

On Sunday mornings, we encourage you to stop by the Welcome Center, located in the lobby. Each Sunday morning, our friendly team members are on hand to talk with you and answer any questions you might have about our church. Plus as a guest, you’ll receive a free gift! You may also contact the church office at (816) 373-8559. We look forward to getting to know you!
