The Welcoming Ministry has the responsibility of welcoming members, creating open paths of communication and organizing teams to assist with the welcoming tasks.
Greeters assist in welcoming attendees at morning worship and special events. Commitment is no more than 2 or 3 times per quarter. Greeters arrive at LCC 20 minutes prior to start of service and greet members and visitors coming in the street entrances.
Ushers assist in the worship service. Ushers arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to the start of church and assist our head usher, Jim Gibbs, with passing out programs, taking collection, straightening up pews after service and various other tasks. We're looking for regular ushers to add to the schedule rotation. Commitment is one Sunday a month.
If you are interested in greeting or ushering, please contact the church office at 216-221-9555 or email Robin Suttel at
New member classes are held on a quarterly basis. An informal, relaxed, information presentation is made in the church parlor in the evening. Learn what Congregationalism is all about and how Lakewood Congregational Church serves the neighborhood. Comments and questions are addressed and answered over refreshments. Child care is provided. Membership information is available through the church office. If you are interested in attending the membership meeting or in joining the church, please call the church office at 216-221-9555.
