Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church


I am glad you are visiting Lakeshore's website. I hope that you find the information helpful and that behind the information you sense a warm invitation to join us as we worship and serve at the corner of Lakeshore and Mandana. At its core LABC is a community, a community that exists to embody the love of God who is our source, our guide and our goal.

Please join us at our Worship Service every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
