On an average Wednesday evening, Lakeside offers adults more than 20 classes and ministry opportunities, primarily in our Adult Education Wing! With our two-track system, adults can enjoy multiple classes/ministries each Wednesday evening. Whether you're looking for a powerful Bible study, learning new skills, or connecting with new friends, there's something for every adult on Wednesday nights. Ministries for youth and children are also provided concurrently with adult classes. Grow in God and make lifetime relationships at Lakeside's "Friends & Family Night!"
