Our Church on the Move: Mission & Values

This 5-week small group study will be tied to the sermon series at all services. Small groups will start the week of September 8th. We are a church on the move and over the course of this study you will become familiar with what makes Church of the Lakes such a vibrant church by learning about our revised mission statement and core values. Every church is mandated by Jesus to “go and make disciples for the transformation of the world.” Join us as we explore, through scripture and real-life applications, the fulfillment of this charge.
