Outdoor Worship Services, Beginning July 5, 10AM - NOW MOVING TO SHADE ON CENTRAL AVE. SIDE

We are excited to be gathering together for Outdoor Sunday Morning Services! It was a bit warm in the sun last week, so we are moving to the grassy area on the Central Ave. side of the building.  As we prepare to gather together:

  1. Bring your own chair and/or blanket to sit in the grass.
  2. Bring your own Bible.
  3. Bring your mask in case you can’t maintain the 6-foot social distance.
  4. We will have the family bathrooms available.
  5. We will have wheelchair seating available on the sidewalks.
  6. We’ll be emailing you the lyrics to the songs the Thursday before the service so that you can print them and bring them with you, or view them on your device.
  7. If you'd like to use a small umbrella for shade, please sit beyond the camera to avoid obstructing it for the livestream.
  8. If we need to cancel due to inclement weather we will report it on Saturday on WOODTV-8 and put a cancellation notice on our Facebook page and then we will still livestream the service on Facebook Sunday morning. 
  9. Even as we move into on-site gatherings, we will maintain all the new virtual capabilities we have developed, which include: livestreaming Sunday services, and offering remote prayer.
  10. If you are uncomfortable or have any concerns about these guidelines please call Pastor Ken Thomas at 616-801-3337.  He’d love to talk to you about it.

LVC Summer Picnic, Saturday, August 22, 12-7PM, Beechpoint Camp in Allegan

  • We also are excited to be celebrating Kim Nyland’s retirement at the picnic so you are welcome to bring her a card and offer your well wishes.  We will have cake served in a sanitary way.
  • We are looking for volunteers to join the serving team.  Contact the office at office@lakeshorevineyard.org. 
  • We will have an opportunity for people to be baptized in Dumont lake.  Contact the office or a pastor to find out more.
  • If we need to cancel the picnic for any reason we will post the cancellation on both WoodtTV-8 and Facebook.  If you haven’t already, we encourage you to sign up on the WoodTV-8 website to receive alerts when Lakeshore Vineyard Church has cancellations. It’s an easy way to get the latest updates.
  • We expect to have a great time swimming and boating in the lake and enjoying gathering together.
  • And we wanted you to know that there will be a group from LVC camping at Dumont Lake Campground Thursday, Friday and Saturday night the same weekend as the Picnic.  We’d love you to be a part of the group, but space is limited so contact the office today to find out more!
