During the shelter in place order all meetings studies and worship services are canceled but will be available online. Please contact Pastor Hopkins for information or follow the links in the daily updates.

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.
