Welcome to Lakemore United Methodist Church

We are meeting for inside worship at 11:00 a.m.  On Nov. 1, 2020 we will move to our earlier time of 9:45 a.m.  If space is needed, we will have an additional space available inside the church to view the service as it happens. We will be live-streaming this service, so you can also watch it at home as it happens.  After it finishes, it will be posted and you can watch it at anytime.   A CD audio recording of the YouTube sermon is also available by calling the church office at 330-733-6531.

The Parking Lot service will begin at 9:45 a.m.   We will continue this service through October 25, 2020.  Inside church worship will be at 11:00 a.m.  Please use the Flickinger Rd. (front) entrance for this worship service.

We want to have in-church worship in the safest environment possible.  This does mean some added precautions.  We want all to enter and exit the sanctuary wearing a mask.  We will have masks available for those who may need one.  Once in your seat, you may remove your mask.  We will ask you to wear your mask while singing.  We will practice social distancing and seating to enable spacing.  Some of our former practices will also be omitted including a passed offering, Junior Church, bulletins, and coffee fellowship.  Our hope is to add these things when we can do so safely.  Thank you for your understanding.

Parking Lot Worship

We are having a parking lot worship service each Sunday at 9:45 a.m.  You can come and stay in your car for a worship service.  The service can be heard from your car either because you can hear the audible sound from the sound system or by tuning in your vehicle’s radio to FM 102.3. Those leading worship will be in the pavilion or just in front of it.  This service will be held rain or shine.  This service will be held through October 25, 2020.

On-Line Worship

NEW!!!  We are now live-steaming the inside worship service on Sundays at 11:00 a.m.  You can watch by going to the church’s Youtube channel (lakemore umc).  Go to Youtube and then type lakemore umc in the search bar.  You will see the live stream, if you log in at 11:00 a.m.   The service will also be available any time after its conclusion on YouTube.

In 1919, a group of women decided that a Sunday School was needed in Lakemore.  They founded the Union Sunday School Class, and soon established the Pioneer Class and a Men’s Fellowship Class.

A preaching service began with various ministers of nearby congregations filling the pulpit.  Sunday School and Church services were held in several locations until a basement, one story block building was built on Church Street in 1922.

By a congregational vote, the membership of approximately fifty people decided to affiliate with the Methodist Episcopal Church.  The church continued to grow in spirit , membership, and financial resources.

As a step of vision and to enable further growth, the present church structure was built  and consecrated on Nov. 23, 1958.

The passion for Christ that was present in the beginning is still alive today.  New and existing ministries await your input and involvement as we continue the tradition of loving and serving Jesus Christ.
