About Lakepoint Church
Lakepoint Church is a dynamic four-year old non-denominational church, planted in the suburban rim of Milwaukee. We are most known for our grass roots community outreach, which has earned us a strong reputation for the things of Jesus in our city, Muskego.
Secondly, we are known for being a family friendly church that loves children. A third of our church is under the age of 18.
People enjoy our Sunday services, but we need help making it a definitive strength. We hope to staff our worship and creative arts in such a way that we’ll have a truly
attractional base to round off our strengths and reputation as a missional church. For us, “attractional” still means “authentic” and “engaging participation.” It’s very important for us to have a worship leader that disciples people into
The purpose of our Sunday service is to a) equip people to discern an everyday life connection with Jesus for themselves, and b) equip people to create everyday life connection between Jesus and others, through everyday relationships. Although our Sunday
morning emphasis is on equipping and sending believers, we still want seekers to feel at home, understand what is taking place, and even feel compelled to come back and experience the glory of God represented among us.
Average Sunday attendance at Lakepoint is about 300. We believe there is a strong likelihood that we will grow to 350-400 in weekly attendance in the near future.

Lakepoint is very active in church planting through Stadia and Newthing, and participates in a local hub of Milwaukee churches committed to planting every-other-year.
