About This Organization

Lakeland Church is a non-denominational Christian church located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Founded in 1998, Lakeland has grown steadily to impact its community in unique and wonderful ways. Lakeland has a contemporary, down-to-earth, raw, and relevant feel. Lakeland’s vision is to lead people to follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and commit to the mission of Jesus…because lives are at stake. At Lakeland, no one beats around the bush and plays church, but instead, people are motivated and activated to go and be the church. With over 1,500 people gathering digitally and in person each weekend to worship and experience God through the body, the excitement for what He is doing is contagious. Since the return from Covid, the opening of Lakeland Park (a state-of-the-art indoor play facility for community families), and brand new ministry spaces for kids and teenagers, Lakeland is in a new season of growth. A primary indicator of the increase is simply the number of people who invite friends to attend church. Over 2,300 kids have visited Lakeland Park since it opened in January, and over 200 kids have joined a Lakeland Kids service for the first time. The future at Lakeland Church is exciting and bright!
