We would love for you to join us at Lakeland for worship and Sunday School. Curious about what to expect? Check out this page to get a good idea. 

what should i wear?

We want you to wear something that you feel comfortable worshiping God in. For some people at Lakeland, that means a shirt and tie; for others, it means jeans and a t-shirt. A lot of people will wear slacks and a shirt. Again, wear what you feel comfortable worshiping God in; after all, that's why we're here. 


We have parking spots specified for our guests along the north side of the building (on Cedar Lane) and in the adjacent parking lot. Just look for the spots marked "Visitor." All of our parking is very close to the building. 

walking in

When you walk into the building, the best place to go is the Welcome Center. The Welcome Center is located in the middle of the first floor, next to the Library. Greeters will be there ready to get to know you and take you to the proper Sunday School class or help you find the Worship Center. 

sunday school

Sunday School is an extremely important aspect of Lakeland. It's here that you will find community and friends that will help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. A gifted Bible teacher will lead your class through a lesson, and then will help you to apply the Bible to your life. 


We love music, all kinds of music. From hymns to new releases, we sing a number of different types of songs in order to worship. Our worship team does a fantastic job of playing beautiful music that is rich with truth. 


Our pastor, Dr. Donald Schmidt, leads us through expository preaching. What this means is that he allows the biblical text to determine the main idea and structure of his sermons. We believe that every word in the Bible is true and from God. Therefore, we seek to explain the meaning of the Bible in its original context and then apply that meaning to our lives today. Expect biblical, relevant, and applicable preaching at Lakeland Baptist.
