Our Church 

Leadership Team

The staff of Dexter Lake Church are inviting, knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced. With a heart for God and for his people, they endeavor to lead not only Dexter Lake Church, but the surrounding community to experience the fullness of Christ in our Vision and Purpose Statement.


Building Better…

It is our plan for everyone who visits, or regularly attends, our church to become better at all they do and use that to serve Christ, the Church, and the Community.


What Dexter Lake Church is really like

Church is about people. It’s about those people getting together to worship God corporately and like each other in the process. 


Making church feel like a close-knit community starts here.

At Dexter Lake, we focus on providing people with opportunities to Become Better…at everything! We have crafted the following environments to help you meet people who share your same season of life and live in your area of town. Young or old, Christian or non-Christian, single, married, or divorced, we have a place for you to connect and grow.


Belong Groups

Belong Groups are community Groups that are small groups of adults that meet weekly for friendship, support, and spiritual growth. Members of all ages, stages of life, and spiritual maturity are welcome.


Service Groups

Service groups are volunteer based groups that function as a part of serving the church and its attenders through various roles and functions including the worship team, connect team, greeters, parking lot, jail ministry, kitchen, children’s workers, etc. To be involved in these groups you must fill out our D-Team Volunteer form. Please note that some of these positions involve more detailed information as well as protocols to serve. These will be explained by a staff member when you begin the process of joining a service team.

We believe in our students and we believe that with Christ, all things are possible because we have access to the Father. We build value in and with our students (and parents) with consistency and quality of activities, events, and teachings. 
Currently, our students meet every Wednesday night beginning at 6:45 pm.  They participate in engaging activities and teachings in our Student Building on the Church campus.
On Sunday, they join everyone in the sanctuary for worship then are dismissed to their classroom for activities, discussion and teaching. 
Ephesians 3:12 – “Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. We believe in lifting up the name of Christ, and that he will draw all men unto himself.”

Our belief is that as people choose to serve, whether in our church, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those who see them giving their time to help someone else.


It takes over 75 volunteers to make Sunday happen. Are you willing to help? Our needs are as diverse as the people who attend our services. Find out how you can get involved and serve others in our church community.

As a church, we want to be known for our extraordinary generosity — both time and money — toward those in our local community.

We partner with international organizations to send teams of people from our church to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of at-risk families and children in other countries.
