College Chapel Worship
As a Christian school, Lakeside College offers a program of spiritual development which aims to see students grow in their understanding of God’s love for them through Jesus. Spiritual development activities include weekly worship services, morning devotions, pastoral care programs and retreats.
The ministry program of the College considers the varying cultural and religious backgrounds of our families and extends respect at all times. We seek to support young people to be aware of their own spirituality, have an understanding of the Christian faith and be able to extend respect to those with varying views of their own. The Lutheran Church of Australia believes that faith in God is not something that should or can be forced upon people.
Pakenham Lakeside Church
Lakeside College also partners with Pakenham Lakeside Church (the local Lutheran congregation) to offer Sunday worship services at Lakeside College Senior building at 4:30pm on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, as well as special services at Easter and Christmas.
Pakenham Lakeside Church is a vibrant, growing church with a high proportion of young families and children. The Sunday service includes an intentional ministry to children, called Kids4Christ (aka Sunday School) – with exciting and engaging activities for kids in the preschool to primary school range. All parents and families of Lakeside College are warmly invited and welcome to attend this worship service on Sundays, with Kids4Christ children’s ministry.
Pakenham Lakeside Church provides authentic Christian community. We intentionally share time together, and extend love in practical ways to people both inside and outside our church. We’re on a journey of inviting people to encounter Jesus, and walk with him in daily life. Students and their families who want to get to know more about Jesus, reconnect with the Christian faith, or who are seeking baptism or pastoral care, are welcome to contact me via the email below.
You can find out more about the church, including listening to sermons on MP3, at our website: www.pakenhamlakesidechurch.org.au .
God bless you!
