Educational Opportunities

The Pastor's Class: Pastor Donna Ruggles teaches a class for adults after the worship service on Sunday. In recent years the class has studied the Dead Sea Scrolls, Comparative World Religions and The Archaeology of the Holy Land. Beginning on March 18th Pastor Ruggles will begin a series "Seizing the Moment," a topical discussion on "moments" we seized to act upon.   

The Koinonia Class: The Koinonia Class is a group of men and women who meet after worship to discuss a wide range of contemporary themes and subjects. A recent series of classes focused on the Holy Spirit. It is a rousing discussion that can lead anywhere- come join us!

The Lakeside Presbyterian Church Preschool

One of the original mission outreach projects of the church, the Lakeside Presbyterian Church Preschool has been serving children in Lakeside area since 1947. The Preschool provides a safe, caring, Christian environment in which young children can learn and grow. Children learn basic life skills like sharing and cooperation, as well as basic concepts like shapes, colors, and numbers. The children are also introduced to the primary principles of the Christian faith, including God's goodness, the beauty of nature, and the importance of caring for one another. The goal of the preschool program is to provide a nurturing environment in which young children can learn and grow.

Started in 2002 by a handful of churches, the Lamb's Basket is now a joint ministry supported by over 40 different congregations in Henrico County. In 2012 the Lamb's Basket food pantry provided over 500,000 pounds of groceries to more than 18,000 people in the greater Lakeside area. Members of the Lakeside Presbyterian Church serve on the governing board of the Lamb's Basket. The congregation also donates groceries on a regular basis. Church members provide the manpower needed to collect, sort, stock and distribute the food each week.

Recognizing a great need for alcoholic rehabilitation in the Lakeside area, the Lakeside Presbyterian Church provides meeting space for multiple A.A. meetings at the church each week.  We also host Al-Anon and Narcotics Anonymous weekly meetings.  Call the church office for the schedule.
