Lakewood’s portion of Synod video

At the upcoming General Synod 28 in Tampa a video slideshow will run continuously on a TV at the Conference information/hospitality table in the Convention Center. These are the four images and the accompanying voice-over that is Lakewood’s portion of that video.

Lakewood United Church of Christ in St. Petersburg is a theologically progressive congregation actively committed to peace and social justice. It was one of the first racially mixed congregations in what was a rigidly segregated city. Today many of the 55 members of this Open and Affirming, Just Peace congregation are involved in significant advocacy projects including the School of the Americas Watch, Veterans for Peace, and Equality Florida, to name a few. Last spring the church sponsored a program at the local public library called Neighbor to Neighbor Interfaith Dialogues. People of differing faiths talked with each other about their beliefs and religious observances. Join us in working to spread God’s peace!

  1. This is so great. I love the banner photo. It also reminds me of Robin Nijbroek because she’s the one who made the beautiful banner with the wonderful message.
