Lakeside Mission: Life - currently not meeting
The recently reorganized committee Lakeside Mission: Life is committed to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs and desires of the congregation. As a result of a survey of the congregation, two new bible studies were initiated with plans for another to be held in spring. A Senior Health Forum was held to address the concerns of aging and healthy living, exercise for seniors and end of life planning. Also plans for theater and concerts throughout the fall and winter are being organized. Most importantly we are working closely with those who have expressed a desire to join Lakeside Community Lutheran Church, with a new member Sunday slated for November 10, 2013. These are ongoing activities of the committee and each year presents new and exciting ways to meet the needs of the congregation.

The Stewardship committee has the responsibility of reaching into the congregation to encourage participation of all congregational members in the church’s ministry through commitment of themselves, their time, their abilities and their financial resources.We help remind the congregation of their history of being GENEROUS GIVERS and we encourage GENEROUS LIVING/GIVING.

Social Concerns Committee - 2nd Tuesday, 9:00 a.m.
The Social Concerns Committee is responsible for many of the community service activities that our church participates in. This committee is responsible for running the Trash and Treasure sale, getting together the food and seeing to the distribution of baskets for Thanksgiving and helping out Crescent Lake Outreach in distribution of goods to the needy. This distribution may include gas cards, payment of electric bills, food, and clothing. We have been instrumental in giving winter clothes and boots to school children. Proceeds from our Trash and Treasure sale go to many "helping" organizations in the community.
We are always looking for new and enthusiastic members. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:00, April through December. If you are interested please contact Karen in the office and she will see that your name is forwarded to the appropriate person. We really do have a good time helping the community.
