WHAT IS LOVE WEEK?
In 2017, Lakeshore Community Church began asking the question, “If Lakeshore closed its doors, would anyone in the community notice?” That question both haunted and motivated a small group of people at Lakeshore to do everything they could to ensure that never happens. So they began something called LOVE WEEK.
LOVE WEEK is all about LOVING and SERVING people in our community the way JESUS would. LOVE WEEK is all about making a difference outside the church walls and out in the community where people need to hear the LIFE CHANGING MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL.
