Seventy-five years ago on November 27, 28, and 29 services were held in Lakewood by missionaries representing the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Those gatherings grew into Lakewood Lutheran Church. We will celebrate God’s blessings over that time on Sunday, November 28, with a service at 3 PM using the forward-looking theme, “Thy Word Shall Fortify us Hence.” ELS President Glenn Obenberger will preach the sermon highlighting 75 years of teaching “children” to speak the praises of God. Friends of the congregation are encouraged to attend either in person or online. The livestream link will be published on the church’s Facebook page, or may be found at the YouTube channel when the service begins. In-person guests are invited to a catered dinner after the service, to be held in the church basement.
