MISSIONS: Serve

Lakeshore is committed to using the gifts God has given us to help others in the Greece and Rochester area. We encourage all members and regular attenders to strive to serve externally or volunteer in our community at least once per quarter.  There are two primary ways to do this:

  • Spotlight Projects - These projects are one-time special events that garner a lot of attention and seek to make a big splash. We offer a number of Spotlight Projects throughout the year, click HERE for a calendar or upcoming events. 
  • Ongoing Opportunities - We have identified a number of organizations within our community whose mission and purpose closely align with ours.  These organizations are continuously open to volunteer assistance, whether it's just one day or on a recurring basis. Click HERE to see the directory of organizations with ongoing needs, find the one that best appeals to you, and "Join Group" to let our Liaison know you are interested in helping out.

CHRISTMAS DAY RECOGNITION -- December 2018

On Christmas Day, a group of Lakeshore people drove around Greece and Rochester to recognize those that had to work on Christmas Day.  Four cars and about 10 people handed out 67 gift cards and Lakeshore cards to workers in various businesses.  People were very touched that Lakeshore would visit them and recognize them on this special day.

Lakeshore Kids & World Vision -- August 2017

On August 20th (both services), the Lakeshore Kids partnered with World Vision Kits to assemble 250 Promise Packs for shipment around the world. All Promise Packs will begoing to children in Africa.

Here is what the kids accomplished:

Adults involved      40           
Children involved   80
Promise Packs      250

 

 

 

 

 

 The Need:  Around the world, millions of children are unable to attend school simply because their families are unable to obtain or afford basic school supplies.  The lack of access to the most basic hygiene supplies, and the risk of insect-borne illnesses like malaria can rob children of their health, happiness, and hope.  Every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria.  The insect repellant blanket included in each Promise Pack prevents the spread of the deadly disease.
