(3/26/2020 Update)

Dear Lakeside Family,

We thank you for your continued prayers and support during this challenging time. In light of the Pinellas County Commission directive voted on yesterday, as of 12:00 noon today, our church office hours will end for the immediate future. However, please know that we are still here to serve your needs.

Our church employees will be working remotely from home, and will still be available during normal business hours to address your needs. Our church phone system will switch to voicemail, and your voicemails will be forwarded via email to our church secretarial staff. They will work to ensure that your requests go to the right party to address your needs. Likewise, since the staff will be working remotely, you can continue to send emails with your requests, and those can be addressed as always.

These are challenging times for us all. We are trying to balance the safety of our employees and congregation with the desire for our church to continue to operate. We ask that you pray with us during this time, that we can accomplish the Lord’s purposes, even with these changes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. When we resume normal business operations at our church's location, we will notify our church family.

We wanted to share with you the most recent decision made by the elders of Lakeside regarding our upcoming ministries. As many of you are no doubt aware, the U.S. Government has issued new guidelines for the next 15 days with the hope of limiting the spread of the coronavirus (CLICK HERE TO READ). These guidelines include the request that all gatherings of more than 10 people be canceled for at least the next 15 days.

In light of these new guidelines, the elders have determined that all in-person ministries at Lakeside (Insight for Women, Awana, Source of Light, Youth Group, Young Adults, Friday Morning Men’s Bible Study, etc.) will be canceled through at least Tuesday, March 31, 2020. We anticipate that we will receive additional guidance from the government during these 15 days, and we will make decisions on future ministry activities at that time. We will attempt to communicate all such decisions as soon as they are made. Our Sunday morning and Sunday evening services will continue to be online only, through our YouTube channel, until further notice.

At this time, we still intend for our church office to be open for regular business hours, as we have less than 10 people on staff. We are available to continue to serve you as the Lord allows, so please do not hesitate to let us know of your need for assistance during this challenging time. If circumstances change such that we need to close the church office, we will immediately notify you, our church family.

Please join us in praying for the Lord’s intervention to halt the spread of this disease. God is good, and we continue to pray that He will be glorified through this time of trial.

In God’s love,
The Elders of Lakeside Community Chapel

Dear Lakeside 
In light of the Governor of the State of Florida’s recommendation to suspend mass gatherings of people for the next 30 days, the board of elders have decided to comply with this recommendation. Accordingly, beginning this Sunday, Lakeside Community Chapel will hold the Sunday morning and evening worship services exclusively online. Pastor Steve will still be preaching the Word, and we will still have worship music to the Lord. However, we will do this online rather than in person.
We do not take this step lightly. However, we want to ensure that we are working in the best interests of the health and safety of all of our members and attenders in the face of the current health crisis. We will not hold Sunday school during this time, however, the 10:40 AM and 6 PM worship services will be streamed live on our YouTube page (link to follow below). We will keep you notified when services will resume in person. Thank you all for your understanding. We believe in the sovereignty of our Great God and in His infinite wisdom, He has allowed this current situation to unfold. Please continue to pray for a quick resolution to the current health situation and for the safety of our church family and fellow citizens. Please also pray that God will continue to be glorified, and the Gospel continued to be proclaimed in this difficult situation.
