Next Steps

At The Lakes we want to help you and your family become all that God has for you. We believe that happens by following Jesus and being a part of His Church. We want to help you know God's love, seen in Jesus, and we believe these are some "Next Steps" that are practical helps.

These are not necessarily the order that everyone takes on their Spiritual journey, but they are next steps we hope all take in their journey. We want to help people take their next step spiritually, whatever that step is!

  • Step 1: Attend

    Attend Sunday morning gatherings, growth track, special events. It is tough to grow spiritually alone!

  • Step 2: Join a group

    Be a part of a life group. Life is better together and sharing in life together is how we take our next steps.

  • step 3: serve

    God has gifted everyone uniquely and we should share those gifts with others! Serve in the church and outside the church. Whether you help with children, on the property of the church, with Habitat for Humanity, or Kids Food Basket, all areas of service are needed and valuable. 

  • Step 4: Give

    Generosity is a part of how we acknowledged a commitment to following Jesus. Not only does The Lakes encourage giving, but we also recognize it is hard to give if your finances are a mess. We try to offer various classes to help you and your finances. (Ex: Financial Peace University, one-on-one financial mentoring)

  • Step 5: Invite/share your story

    Each of us has a unique story of who we were before we met Jesus, how we met Jesus, and who we are now (and who we are trying to become!). We want to help people share their stories with others. We also believe that the local church is the hope of the world and we want to invite others to join us on our spiritual journeys by inviting them to attend, join a group, and serve. 

    Another part of inviting is inviting Jesus into our daily lives. We want all people to have a devotional life that includes reading the Bible, praying, and reading other devotional books.
