Lakewood Christmas Store

The Christmas Store is gearing up for another year and we're excited for another opportunity to serve our neighbors here in Lakewood. Things will look a bit different this year, but there are plenty of ways you can jump in and help! Check out our blog for more information.

Advent Activity Packet

Parents, please pick up a copy of our Advent Activity Packet for your family in the Lower Level. This is a great opportunity to lead your children through the Christmas season in a thoughtful way and includes paper ornament crafts.

First Steps Bruncheon: December 6th

New to Parkside Westside? Join us after the first service on December 6th at 10:15 AM for a brief get-together. We'll introduce you to some on our leadership team and share a little bit about who we are and where we're headed as a church. We'll meet upstairs in Room 210 and spread out to ensure social distancing. RSVP here and we'll be sure to save you a seat!

Video Venue for Parents

In an effort to provide some additional flexibility for parents with young children, on a trial basis we will begin streaming services in the lower level. Families may RSVP for the 9:00AM or 10:30AM service as normal and utilize the space as needed. Please note that this option is specifically designed to serve our families with infants and young children and is not intended as an alternate format for all attenders.

Baptism Preparation Workshop

If you're interested in taking the next step toward baptism, please join us for a two-part preparation workshop on December 6 & 13 at 10:30AM. Our hope is to include these baptisms as a part of our Christmas Eve services. Sign-up here or email  if you have any questions.

COVID Reminders

Just a friendly reminder that masks must remain on outside while congregating per the Governor's order as well as for the duration of the service.

Join the Greeter or Usher Team

Our ushers and greeters are the first to welcome you on a Sunday morning. During these days of COVID-19 they are there to help you find a seat and answer your questions. If you would like to help out in this way, please fill out the Volunteer Form and select "Ushers" or "Greeters" as your serving area of choice, and we'll follow up with you. Bonus: ushers and greeters are guaranteed a spot for the Sunday service! 

Children's Ministry during COVID-19

We are not offering children’s ministry at this time, due to potential risks to children and volunteers, and because of the difficulty in ensuring proper sanitization. We are, however, glad to make our children's curriculum available for home use. Curriculum will be distributed via a shared drive; if you are not a member of the "Children's" group in CCB and would like access to the curriculum, please email   and we will add you.

Building Campaign

If you would still like to participate in our Pledge Campaign, we would welcome you to do so. If you have already pledged, you are now able to set up your online gift through the "Give" tab in CCB or designate your checks as "Building Campaign" in the memo line. For more information, please visit our Building Campaign webpage.
