The church is a place for people not only to fulfill their destiny for Christ but a chance to make some great friends while doing it.
We'd love to see you on a weekend soon. We meet on Sunday at 10am!
What is Awana?
Awana is a global, non-denominational ministry founded over 70 years ago by two pastors who wanted to reach children with the good news of Jesus Christ. Awana has grown from its beginnings in a church basement in Chicago into a ministry that reaches over five million children and youth around the world each week. Awana stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed",
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15.
Awana reaches kids for Christ through fun, Scripture-rich experiences that lead them to know, love and serve Him. Kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. Awana reaches kids and families where they're at and walks alongside them in their faith journey.
We look forward to partnering with you as you help your child discover God's purpose for their life and hope for the future.
Jesus is central to everything we do. We sing, pray, and preach in His powerful name. Our past, present, and future are centered on Jesus Christ. Our purpose on this earth is to make much of Jesus Christ.
16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
Worship is essential to God’s plan of redemption and provides a strategic avenue for God’s entry into an alienated world. An illustration of this is found in the Lord’s Prayer, which begins with worship: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” Then, it extends the invitation “…Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:9, 10). When we pray in the manner that Jesus taught His disciples, we are first, with worship, reaching into the invisible realm and then, on the grounds of our worship, welcoming the entry of His divine authority, rulership, and power into this world.
At Lakeland, we believe that a natural reflection of our love for God is worship. And that worship should invade every aspect of our lives.
