Worship Services

Sunday Worship: Fall/Winter/Spring

Services at Lakewood Presbyterian Church are held at 10:00 am.  We follow the liturgical calendar which uses prescribed Bible readings for each Sunday as we progress from Advent/Christmas through Lent/Easter, and into the season of Pentecost.

Sunday Worship: Summer

One Sunday in the summer is dedicated to an outdoor worship experience at Lakewood Park, which is followed by a potluck meal in the Woman’s Pavilion.

Seasonal Services

Lakewood Presbyterian Church also offers special worship experiences throughout the church year, appropriate to the liturgical season. These services are always occasions surrounded by special meaning and music, including:

Christmas Eve Family Service
An earlier Christmas Eve event for families that includes a Christmas pageant incorporating all of the children. It also involves lessons and carols and ends with the singing of ‘Silent Night’ by candlelight.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
A traditional later Christmas Eve worship experience, with lessons and carols, a message from the pastor and the singing of ‘Silent Night’ by candlelight.
Maundy Thursday Service
A meditative worship service that includes readings from Scripture relating Christ’s journey to the Cross. As passages are read, candles are snuffed and lights dimmed, eventually leading to a darkness that evokes the shadows of the tomb and the sorrow of the day to come.
Easter Sunday
A joyous worship service in sermon and song, proclaiming the Good News that is the high point of the church year, Christ’s resurrection and our shared salvation.
Peacemaking/World Communion Sunday
A time of worship during which we remember our continuing call to be peacemakers in this world. It is also the Sunday on which Christians of many denominations across the world commit themselves to celebrating the sacrament of communion, affirming that we are one body in Christ.
