Join us for Holy Week at Lakes Church!

Palm Sunday
April 2nd

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday. On this Sunday, one week prior to Easter, we celebrate Jesus’ entrance into the Holy City, Jerusalem.  Palm branches were tossed before him as entered the city to identify him as the Messiah.  He has come to provide salvation to those who will believe.  He has come to die on a cross and rise from the grave.  Salvation is coming!  Join us as we celebrate Jesus triumphal entry and the beginning of Holy Week!

Good Friday
April 7th

12:00pm until 6:30pm

The day will begin at Noon with the opening of our “In Remembrance Walk Through” at our Downtown Campus. This immersive walk through experience is great for the whole family and provides a unique opportunity for reflection on the sacrifice and gift Christ gave to us when He died on the cross.

**If you plan to attend our “In Remembrance Walk Through” please bring your mobile device and a pair of earbuds so you can take part in some new aspects of the experience.**

Following the end of our “In Remembrance Walk Through”, at 6:30pm, we will begin our Good Friday service at our Downtown Campus. This will be a time for us, as the body of Christ, to come together as we worship Christ and partake in communion together as we remember the sacrifice for His death on the cross in our place. We will also hear an incredible message from the word of God from Senior Pastor, Dr. Aaron D. Burgner.

Meet our Senior Pastor
Dr. Aaron D. Burgner

Pastor Aaron became the pastor of Lakes Church (formerly Church at the Mall) in September of 2017. Since then, he has led our congregation with expository and in-depth teaching through the Word of God. His approach is that by learning and teaching through the bible verse-by-verse that we will begin to see that in its entirety, it is all one narrative that points and shouts back to Christ. So, as we look forward to kicking off this Easter Season, Pastor Aaron will be closing out the journey he has been leading us through, looking at the life of Christ, His great sacrifice, burial and resurrection!


We will have chairs provided for the first 1,500 people

Palm Sunday & Easter Sunday childcare will be available for all 9:15am & 10:45am services. On Good Friday childcare will be available for children Birth – 2 years of age.

Due to the number of attendees at each service, we ask that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the start of the service you are attending to ensure everyone is seated before the service begins.

Each service lasts approximately one hour.

Where you feel most comfortable in formal attire or jeans and a t-shirt, we encourage you to come as you are. Please be modest, but come as you are!

Please plan to bring your mobile device and a pair of ear buds so you can participate with this interactive walk-through event.

Join us for our current series: STORIES

Every day of our life we are living a story in the making, a story that God is writing! Under the direction of Senior Pastor, Dr. Aaron D. Burgner and our campus pastors we will look at the parables of Jesus, what they meant, how they apply to us and how they impact our stories today. We hope you will plan to join us for this series as we take a look at the greatest story ever told!
