September 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



2018-2019 is a Confirmation year for Lakewood United Church of Christ!  If you are 8th grade or older and interested in going through the Confirmation program, please let Rev. Mollie ( know. The class will generally meet two Sundays a month either from 11:30 am until 1:00 pm, or from 6:00-8pm. (There will be no YAC on the dates when we meet in the evening). In addition to these sessions, there will be a few Sunday morning church visits to congregations in our area to experience and explore a variety of worship service. There may be an opportunity to attend a Confirmation Retreat sometime in the spring. Confirmation in our tradition is an exploration of contemporary and historic Christian teachings, with a goal of each Confirmand developing and articulating their personal beliefs. Contact Rev. Mollie with questions.

Calling all YAC-ers who are in 7th grade and up to kick off our fall program year on Sunday, September 9. We’ll meet at our regular time of 6:30-8pm for games and time to reconnect after a summer of trips, camps, and other adventures.

Fall Kick-Off and Potluck

September 9 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am


Summer tends to be the sleepy season at Lakewood UCC. School lets out, people go on vacation, and church activities shift down a gear. Everything just moves a little slower. Hopefully by now though, everyone’s feeling rested and eager to get going again. We’ll kick off our Fall season on September 9 with our choirs back in action and a celebratory potluck after the service. Our youth group, YAC, will have its own kick-off as well. More information on that to come!
