Come to church on YouTube or Zoom tonight at 7:30. A short service of song, spoken word and prayer with a pre-Pentecost theme.


On Saturday at 1:00 the Forever Young program will be Lakeshore’s own Bruce Quan discussing his book “Bitter Roots: Five Generation Of A Chinese Family in America.” Of his book Bruce writes: This account of five generations of my family’s life could simply be called an historical drama. The characters are all people who lived and breathed and walked the earth of China and California, from the 1850s to the present day. The hardships they endured, the successes they wrested from the tight-fisted grasp of the ‘White Devils’ whose racism shaped and distorted their lives and mine – all are true although at times harsh and almost unbelievable. But we persisted, and built a legacy of hard work, self-determination, dignity, worth and family strength.

Also on Saturday, join Pastor Tanner and the Alliance of Baptists Community for Justice in Palestine and Israel for an important conversation.

The Alliance Community for Justice in Palestine & Israel invites you to a 75-minute conversation on Saturday, May 22 at 4pm EDT about current events in Gaza and Jerusalem. We will hear from Palestinians and activists about how to understand what is happening as well as what we can do to support the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice and equality. Come find out why current events are More Than a Conflict…Register Here

Sunday is Pentecost Sunday and our preacher will be longtime friend of Lakeshore, The Reverend Marie Onwubuariri, Associate General Secretary for Mission Resource Development – American Baptist Churches USA. Marie invites us to read a poem of hers in advance of Sunday.

Don’t forget – Wear red for Pentecost!

Tonight on LABC Zoom – A Time For Prayer (studying the Gospel of John) 6:00.
