What to expect

Parking

Located just north of S Union and W Florida Ave in Lakewood, we have a large parking lot on the north side of church, so finding a spot is easy with handicap parking in front of church. Feel free to arrive early to grab a coffee and use the restroom.

Kids

Here at Lochwood Christian Fellowship (LCF), we believe in Family driven worship where children ages 4 and above are encouraged to learn alongside their parents and the fellowship. We believe they learn best by example and imitation of the body. There is an attended nursery for those ages 3 and below for parents convenience but feel free to keep them in the service. Following the main service, during Study and Review classes, there will be a children's class available downstairs in Room 108. Here at LCF, we do not believe in fruitless arts and crafts and mindless playtime. In the children's class, the focus is to instill biblical doctrine through narrative, catechism, memorization of Scripture and songs. Teaching children is the responsibility of the family and Lochwood aims to foster that but not replace it. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)


Worship

When we gather together on the Lord’s Day, we come prepared to worship the living God. Even though most people think that music is worship, it isn’t. Music prods us to worship and accompanies us in worship. Worship is presenting oneself to Christ as a living sacrifice, ascribing to God His value or worth and then responding with our surrenderance. The essential elements that we express in our time together are all found in Scripture. We practice the regulative principle of worship. With the Bible as our guide, here are the disciplines that we hold to: prayer, reading Scripture aloud, singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, preaching, giving, Lord’s Supper, baptism and fellowship. As far as music goes, our music is meant to please God, not the congregation or lost people. The music is God-centered, biblically sound lyric and singable. All of us are the worshipers, not mere spectators.
