Cindy and I came to the North Port area in late December, 2002. We soon began looking for a new church home that we could join to continue our congregational worship life. After looking at several churches close by, we, by accident(?), drove by Lakeside on our way back from watching a most beautiful sunset at the south jetty in Venice.
We were attracted by the beautiful stained glass, the attractive building and land. Since we both were and are Missouri Synod Lutherans, we decided to attend the service that Sunday. It was like walking into "quick sand". We went in and never left. The people, the Pastor and the settings all came together to make this immediately our new church home.
Since then, we have become active at the church by singing in the choir, working on the Board of Trustees, working as a sound technician, and many other needed and worthwhile jobs. We have made many friends who enrich our lives greatly.
We feel that the Word of God is preached and taught in truth and purity at Lakeside as taken from the Holy Scripture.
We invite you to join us at worship some Sunday morning. Services are at 8:00 and 10:30 am. Contemporary Service is at 9:15 am. Just ask anyone to point out Bob and/or Cindy Holmes and we’ll be glad to “take you under arm” and show you around. Please explore the link at http://www.lakesidelutheran.net for in depth information and driving directions to the church.
