Ministries & Worship
Lakeside Presbyterian Church has continued, sustained and strong, but with a renewed vision. As leaders of the congregation, we look to the future with the idea that our church is filled with a new spiritual energy.
Through deep study, reflection, and prayer – and with some trial and error – God has taught us what matters most. We are truly people of the Resurrection Faith!
Lakeside exists "to fulfill Christ's commandment to love others as He loves us and to make disciples of all people." We have boiled our mission down "To see everyone transformed and mobilized by Jesus as disciples." We filter every program, budget, and proposal through this lens.
If something won't help us transform lives, build community, mobilize God's people, and model generosity, we don't do it. We gather in homes, coffee shops, schools, restaurants, and office buildings to share how God is transforming lives.
Today our story is still being written by God's creative hand. Each person we meet (including you!) becomes part of this story. We are proudly connected to a larger church body called the Presbyterian Church (USA) and, in concert with other congregations, reach to the "ends of the earth" proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ grounded in faith, hope, and love.
We look forward to you joining us in this exciting adventure of new life in Jesus Christ.
Lakeside Presbyterian Church is located alongside thebeautiful intercoastal waterway, just south of downtown West Palm Beach. Our stunning sanctuary, with its breath-taking stained glass cross, is truly inspirational and has been the venue for weddings since 1952. In addition to the sanctuary, our property is spacious, with various rooms available to the bridal party and family on the day of the wedding, including a Fellowship Hall available for wedding receptions.
Mark Aliapoulios started as Director Musical Ministries in October 2006, with Kimberlee Aliapoulios leading our bell choir and children's choir. Mark has kept the outstanding musical tradition of Lakeside alive. He has led the choir and congregation with moving music each Sunday, often accompanied by guest instrumentalists on the piano, trumpet, and flute.
Kidz Choir meets every other week during Sunday school. The children learn music and have fun with Mrs. Kimberly!
Lakeside is the church home of many college students, especially those attending Palm Beach Atlantic University – located just a couple miles north of us on Flagler. Most of them are in our choir! We’re now in the midst of putting together a more comprehensive college ministry program. Stay tuned!
