Adult Ministries

Our Adult Ministries at Lake Avenue Church provides opportunities and communities for spiritual growth where hurts are healed, where friendships are developed, where authentic relationships are built, where marriages are strengthened, families are bonded, where singles are valued, where love is alive, where God is understood, and where Jesus Christ is Lord. This occurs through weekend classes, small groups, activities, retreats and joining together in reaching out in serving those within our community and world.

The purpose of our Adult Ministries is to help people to do three things here at LAC: connect, grow and serve.

Our Goals

  • Help connect people in authentic relationships at Lake Avenue Church.
  • Help people grow and mature in their relationships with Jesus Christ.
  • Equip and encourage people to serve in ministry.
