“No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey,

Welcome to Lakewood United Church of Christ. We are located near the Lakewood City Commons and Belmar; south of 6th Ave., between Wadsworth Blvd. and Garrison St.

Lakewood UCC is a vibrant, inclusive, progressive Christian church committed to making disciples, making connections, and making a difference. These are exciting times at Lakewood UCC as we journey together with our pastor, the Rev. Curtis Preston. Lakewood UCC is a diverse “open and affirming” congregation seeking, “to develop our faith in God, enabling us to know the abundant life Christ promised by nourishing our spiritual journeys, fostering community, inviting others to join us on the journey, and going forth into the world through service to do justice, love others, and promote peace.”

“What does this mean to us? It means that we have vibrant and vital worship full of old and new music, grounded in prayer and relevant sermons that connect with everyday life. It means we care for and support one another as we each strive to find meaningful ways to live out Jesus’ call to “come and follow.” It means we are engaged in carrying the best of the past with us as we search out new ways to engage in ministry. It means we believe that diversity strengthens our unity in Christ. It means that when the worship is over, the service begins. If you are a person of deep faith or shallow faith, old faith, new faith or renewed faith, questioning faith or no faith at all, we hope you’ll come by and join us on the journey.
