Worship at Lakeview
Join us for worship each Sunday morning at 10:45am. We meet in the Worship Center, right off of the main foyer. Enter through the main North Entrance, be greeted by friendly faces, handshakes and hugs, and find a place to worship with us!
What to Expect
At Lakeview, we believe God is the only audience of our worship. We strive each and every Sunday to worship God “in Spirit and in Truth.” We incorporate many different avenues into our worship services, by which you can present you offerings of worship to the Father. These include:
- worship through song
- worship through prayer
- worship through the giving of tithes and offerings
- worship through the preaching of God’s Word
- worship through our response to the Holy Spirit
At Lakeview, you can expect to sing a blend of traditional hymns, contemporary hymns and contemporary praise and worship songs and chorus’. The music portion of our worship is driven by many different instruments including: piano, drums, guitars, violin, cello, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, and more. We also have a praise team which assists the music director in leading the congregation to God’s throne, with song.
During a worship service, Lakeview incorporates the worship element of prayer. We believe prayer is vital to a life-changing relationship with Jesus, therefore, we offer you many opportunities to converse with God, whether minister-led, deacon-led, corporately in small groups, or silently, between yourself and God.
Each worship service at Lakeview gives you the opportunity to worship God by giving a portion of what He has given to you, back to Him. As the offering plates are passed throughout the Worship Center, each participant in worship is given the opportunity to place their tithes and offerings into the offering plate, while reflecting on the fulfillment of God’s promises in your life, to provide, while you are faithful to Him.
Preaching the Word of God is incorporated into every worship service. At Lakeview, God’s Word is preached as it is written. Pastor Rod presents the message that God has given to Him, after much prayer and studying, and listening to the Holy Spirit, and preaches expecting God to change lives! For more information on what Lakeview believes, regarding the Bible, please visit our What We Believe page.
Because God’s Word is “living and active,” and transforms lives, we strive to give each participant in worship the opportunity to respond to the Holy Spirit’s work, throughout the worship service. Following the preaching of God’s Word, we hold what we like to call an invitation. This is not an invitation by the pastor, or any other individual within the church. This is an invitation by the Holy Spirit for you to listen to His prompting and conviction on your life, and respond. Types of response may include prayer, in the pew, or at the altar, Christian’s repenting of hidden sin and asking for forgiveness, interceding for another brother or sister in Christ, joining the membership at Lakeview, or surrendering you life to Jesus Christ, and making Him Lord of your life, once and for all! During the invitation time, there will be ministers and counselors available to discuss your decisions and pray with you regarding your response to the Holy Spirit.
