Change The World

Lakewood United Methodist Church located at 15700 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood, will join with other United Methodists on May 20, 2012 in the Change the World movement.  Members all around the globe will be in service with simple acts of kindness to build community locally and to fight malaria globally.   Lakewood United Methodist Church will participate with the Lakewood Department of Aging and Lakewood Alive to go to homes around our community to help with mowing lawns, cleaning and pruning flower beds, and planting flowers. 

The event will kick off following the morning worship services with a light lunch at 12:30. The services each Sunday begin with Awakening at 8:30 a.m.  This is a contemplative service with communion served.  The traditional service begins at 10 a.m., and the contemporary service follows at 11:30 a.m.   The teams will leave the church on May 20th and go to their assigned locations.  Volunteers may bring their garden tools, gloves, and water bottles.  Please contact the church office at 216-226-8644 or email Rev. Laura Jaissle at if you would like to join this community event.

Lakewood United Methodist is a service oriented church.  A free community meal is served on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.  All are welcome.  The church participates with the Family Promise network providing shelter and food for homeless families  for a week 4 times a year.  The Youth Mission Team plans to work at Flat Rock, a residence for developmentally handicapped youth this summer.  The church will also be partnering with Lakewood Alive to repair and paint homes in the community in June.
