"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."  

John 3:16

What to expect

Great Lakes Church is simply a comfortable place to come and experience God! No one will push you or make you feel uncomfortable, and you can feel the joy and happiness the second you walk through the doors. We invite you to throw on some jeans and come joins us!


Our service is 9AM Sunday mornings and we offer a laid back, family-friendly atmosphere. We offer complimentary coffee, hot tea and Panera Bread, so come hungry.  


We have a phenomenal children's program that your kids will love. Our KidStuf program is one of the biggest and brightest ministries of the church. So many children are helped each week in learning about God and learning to grow up to be responsible, caring and loving adults. It is safe and secure, so you can sit and relax during the service.

who we are

Great Lakes Church (GLC) is a Christian church in Lorain, Ohio. GLC is an approved church with Ohio Ministries of the Church of God and is an approved non-profit Christian church with affiliation with our national Church of God Offices in Anderson, IN.  


We started gathering as a small group of people on March 30, 2008 and have simply started a word-of-mouth invitation to all people in Amherst, Lorain and surrounding communities looking for a Christian church where God is honored and we "show people Jesus" through loving acts of service and kindness rather than just telling people about Jesus.


The very essence of this church is to spend more time serving our friends, neighbors, family and community rather than spending more time inside a building talking about it. .
