“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.

Fall 2022: Let’s Be Friends!

I just don’t feel very connected. 

I don’t think I fit in anywhere.

I’m lonely. 

I wish I had more friends.

Have you ever found yourself thinking these thoughts? Friend, you are not alone. The events of recent years have left people throughout our world feeling friendless, and the women in our church are no exception.

Our desire for friendship is good – it’s how God wired us. And here’s some more good news: God gave us a guidebook for building the best friendships imaginable!

These friendships are the focus of our fall workshops. They’ll be fun, relaxed, relevant, and invaluable for pursuing biblical friendships. More specifically, they’ll be opportunities to learn and live out what God-centered friendships look like, with the help of our beloved speakers, open conversation time, and memorable activities designed for introverts and extroverts alike.

Save the dates for these three workshops:

  • Saturday, Sept. 24th, 10:00-11:30 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 18th, 6:45-8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 12th, 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Wait, is that all?

You might be wondering why we’ve planned only three meetings for the entire fall season. The reason is that your friendships flourish when they’re pursued by you. So, we encourage you to set aside time outside of our workshops to be a friend to the people God is leading you to.

The Company We Keep: In Search of Biblical Friendship by Jonathan Holmes

Perfect for small groups, this little book is packed with practical teaching and includes thought-provoking discussion questions. Biblical friendship is deep, honest, pure, transparent, and liberating. It is also attainable!

The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Butterfield

Here’s a stimulating choice for your book club! This surprisingly convicting autobiography of a tenured English professor gives us front-row seats to the immediate and eternal impact that Biblical friendship can have in the community. 

Will we be friends this fall? Let’s see how we can finish our thoughts.

I just don’t feel very connected…

Thank you, Lord, for showing me yet another way to get connected.

I don’t think I fit in anywhere…

God, You know who are the best friends for me, and I am following You to lead me to them.

I’m lonely…

I will search for someone else who looks lonely, too.

I wish I had more friends…

Wow, here’s a way to worship God with so many other women!

Yes, let’s be friends!
