Lakeside is pleased to welcome Rev. Dr. Dennis Miller, Senior Pastor at Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, Ohio, as Preacher of the Week June 9-13. This week’s preacher is supported by the Rev. Dr. Bud Cox Endowment.

The liturgy will be led by Rev. Dr. Scott Wilson, Lakefront Worship Coordinator. Worship music for the 2024 summer season is supported by James E. Beardsley and Doris F. Beardsley.

Following the opening prayer, children (ages 5-11) will proceed to Bradley Temple for Children’s Church with Chip Richter. There will be a message by Richter, songs, crafts, lemonade and cookies to share. Preschoolers are welcome if accompanied by an adult. 

Miller is the chief dreamer and senior pastor of Ginghamsburg Church, a multi-campus ministry in Tipp City and Dayton, Ohio. The congregation is one of the nation’s largest UMCs and has a 30-year history of worldwide mission and impact.
