This Sunday, Lakewood hosts guests Charles and Carol McCullough as they lead morning worship. Charles is a UCC pastor and artist (sculpturebymccollough.com). He designed the medallion on the Just Peace Award that Lakewood received in 1997 from the national United Church of Christ.
Below are three photos from when Lakewood received this award! If anyone can help identify the people in the photos (left to right, back row, front row) this post will be updated and reposted with that information.
