All Things New

by Kelly Minter

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

Beautiful Outlaw

by John Eldredge

Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things.

In Beautiful Outlaw, John Eldredge removes the religious varnish to help readers discover stunning new insights into the humanity of Jesus. He was accused of breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking. Of being the evil himself. He was so compelling and dangerous they had to kill him. But others loved him passsionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He'd say the most outragious things. He was definitely not the Jesus of the stained glass.

In the author's winsome, narrative approach, he breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By uncovering the real Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with color and brilliance because of his humanity. Eldredge goes on to show readers how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This book will quicken readers' worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.

Purchase the book directly at Amazon.com or local bookstores.  Read the first three chapters before the first meeting on June 27th.

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a group for moms of children from pregnancy or adoption through kindergarten.  It is meant to encourage, equip and develop each mother to realize her potential as a woman, parent and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.  In group sessions, moms discuss relevant Christian lessons and encourage one another while the children are cared for and taught a Bible lesson.  Friendships are formed, bonds strengthened, and moms are supported.  Lakeshore hosts a group that meets on the first and third Friday mornings of each month from 9:30-11:30. Registering with MOPS is required to attend. If you want to know more about MOPS, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Are you currently or in the past been impacted by a family member's addiction or do you struggle with issues born from a severely dysfunctional family?  You are not alone.

Lakeshore is offering a support group to help women deal with these issues.  A support group is different from a Bible study group. A support group is for people who share a common problem and who meet together to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide emotional support for one another.  Members can support each other and may suggest new ways of dealing with a particular problem.

The group will be using the following study as a resource:

Making Peace with Your Past is a support-group study that offers practical, biblically-based guidance to lead adults to identify, understand, and come to terms with the feelings and problems of growing up in a dysfunctional family. This course will help adults who grew up in a home in which one of the family members had emotional needs so strong that they disrupted the development of healthy relationships. Participants will understand problems from the past and identify and remove emotional, psychological, and spiritual barriers to fellowship with God. (12 sessions)

The group will meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM at the church.
