A community of inclusive welcome

We embrace all of God's children as persons of sacred worth regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, national origin, culture, tradition, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other difference real or perceived, and welcome all people into the life of this congregation.

At Lake Street United Methodist Church, we take seriously our goal of Inclusive Welcome.


Including everyone can be as simple as involving our children in the hospitality of our church on Pancake Breakfast Sunday, or it can be as  involved as beginning a community-wide monthly worship for adults with disabilities.


It can be as inexpensive as printing pictorial bulletins for non-readers or as costly as remodeling to add ramps and a vertical platform lift toward greater accessibility.


During the week, we offer our welcome to two Narcotics Anonymous groups, two dementia support groups, as well as other community gatherings, all part of our goal to be a place of healing and comfort to all. If you are one who has not always felt welcome in church before - you are welcome here.
