Worship Where Extraordinary Happens!

Every person, no matter their culture, asks one basic question: Why was I put on Earth? Lake Effect Church exists to answer that question for you, your family and our community. Lake Effect’s mission is to help people know God, find freedom, discover purpose and make a difference. We believe that as you experience the joy of this adventure, God will bring deep satisfaction and excitement for your future.
