Ways to Serve

Extending the Hand of Christ

In addition to our many mission partners that we support financially, we offer intergenerational opportunities to actually DO mission. Some are annual, quarterly, monthly or event driven.

Parents and school age children can work alongside older members of our faith community.  Whatever your interest and schedule, there are mission programs for you.

Community Meal 

This delicious hot meal is served free to anyone at 12:30 p.m. on the last Sunday of the month.  Volunteers of all ages can help set tables, bake or cook, provide beverage refills and, of course, clean up!

Habitat for Humanity

Occasionally we organize a work crew for a Habitat home in the Cleveland area. This is a great opportunity for church members young and old to work together and help neighbors in need.


Christmas Collection

Our annual seasonal gift sharing, focused on children, alternates between Lakewood Christian Service Center and New Life Community.  We also have a Christmas “mitten tree” where we share cold weather gear of all sorts.

Hunger Sunday

On the first Sunday ofeach month, a special collection is received to be used for local hunger ministries overseen by the Lakewood Community  Service Center.

Event Driven Collections

If there’s a need, the Lakewood Presbyterian Congregation will band together to share God’s bounty. We have done school supplies, crisis pregnancy and tools for Habitat for Humanity as examples.
