Welcome to Lakemore United Methodist Church

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)~~~We continue to be closed to worship inside the church on Sunday morning.  The Administrative Council is reviewing the Bishop’s taskforce’s recommendations on in-person worship and will be making a decision soon.  At the present time, we will continue the Parking Lot worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and the YouTube sermons, posted each Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m.

Parking Lot Worship

We will be having a parking lot worship service each Sunday at 10:00 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.  We hope that this will provide a means of worship in proximity and especially for those who may not be able to access on-line services.

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.
