Lakewood Ladies

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions… and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” Titus 2:11-12a, 14b.
Welcome to our hub for women’s ministries! We hope that this page will help you stay informed and feel included at Lakewood – and more than that, we pray for this ministry to be a place of true, lovely, everlasting friendships.
As the Ladies of Lakewood, we are committed to the church’s mission- Growing People through God’s Word. All of our get-togethers, Bible studies, and community outreach events are designed to engage our hearts and minds with God’s Word, to encourage us to pursue godliness, to unite us in service, and to center our friendships on Jesus.

Summer 2022: Let’s Be Friends!

Godly friendships are like gardens. Their roots go deeply into the Word of God. Their nutrients energize us in our daily walk. They fill our lives with flavor, perfume, and beauty. They yield fruit.
And they require work.
After a long Wisconsin winter, fun activities can quickly fill our summer days. Will you commit to tending your garden of godly friendships this summer? Join our Ask a Friend, Make a Friend campaign. Here’s the plan!
  1. Think of a friend from your community group, ladies’ fellowship group, or shared ministry who you’ve been wanting to get to know better.
  2. Think of a neighbor, friend, coworker, or family member who you’ve been building a relationship with.
  3. Invite them both over to grow closer in godly friendship. We recommend choosing a book to read and discuss together.
These are the two resources we’re using for deeper connections this summer. We hope you’ll join us in using them!
1. If you’ve enjoyed Pastor Dave’s sermons on Colossians chapter 3, you’ll enjoy Colossians: Rooted in Him by The Daily Grace Co. It’s an excellent 6-week study, complete with daily study material and weekly memory verses and reflections, that will help you dig deeper into Scripture to find joy, peace, and contentment in Jesus.
2. Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund is a beautiful book that lends itself perfectly for a great book club. Its focus on our Savior builds off our 2021 ladies’ retreat theme of “Come to Christ.” Bonus: since this book was also a gift from our pastors to the congregation last Christmas, it might already be part of your personal library.

Frequently asked questions

What is the time period for the Ask a Friend, Make a Friend campaign? from May to the end of August. Of course, we’d love to see us all pursuing close friendships year-round, but this particular campaign will end when our ladies’ fall Bible study begins in September.
What if I don’t know of any women at Lakewood to connect with this summer? How can I get connected? Don’t worry, we’ve got friends ready and waiting! Consider joining one of these friend groups throughout this summer. Looking for more or have any questions, let us know you’d like to get together.
Are there any fun Lakewood Ladies events planned for this summer? Hey, who doesn’t want to have fun?! Connect with us on Facebook (Lakewood Ladies Group) or Instagram – or connect with someone who does – to invite or be invited to spontaneous summer girls’ nights!
