God’s Goals & My Gifts

God’s Goals & My Gifts

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.

The United Methodist Dilemma

Following the February 2019 special general conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC) there has been much angst concerning the passing of a resolution affirming the denomination’s stand against same-gender marriage and gay ordination.

UMC General Coference Update

I can share that this does not change our UM doctrine from what it has been nor does it change who we are at Lakeview or what we are about.

Understanding Your Spiritual Gifts

Bible Study During  Lenten  Worship  Services  we have discovered the importance of our Spiritual Gifts. Many of us would like to know more about our own God-given gifts and how to apply them as Christ’s disciples. Therefore, we are offering a six-week study for forty minutes a week to help us identify and apply our gifts of the spirit. Understanding Spiritual Gifts takes you straight to God’s Word to discover answers from the Gift-Giver Himself. We will dig into Bible…

Pastor John’s View for April 2019

Pastor John’s View In February, we spent our Sundays together talking about prayer; why we pray, having a love for prayer, and having a burden to pray for others. For some, prayer comes  very  naturally,  easily flowing into a conversation with God, but for many prayer takes a bit of preparation, work, and planning. If you missed one or more of these messages, they are available in the Archives, along with a large library of other information, videos, and activities.…

This Week’s Inspiration



John 21:1-14 by Thoburn F. Thompsont This passage is so rich in images-disappointed fishermen, slow recognition of a beloved master returned from the dead, nets not torn by a huge catch, 153 large fish, a lakeside charcoal fire, and an invitation to share a meal of roasted fish and bread. I live in Minnesota. Folks in my part of the country know what it is to fish and not catch. We know about torn nets and the “big” fish. We…

God’s Human Speech

John 20:19-23 by Barbara Bater We tend to think of language as the essential element of com­munication, but it’s not . Eye movement, tone of voice, physical gestures, volume, space, and time play a larger part in the mean­ing we take from other people’s messages to us and the ways our conversations are heard and interpreted by others. Imagine the disciples huddled behind a door that has been “locked for fear of the Jews.” They apparently don’t believe what Mary…

A Play within the Play

Isaiah 42:1-9 by W Paul Jones The church divides its year into two “rehearsal” periods for a drama that discloses the meaning of everything. The plot unfolds in three acts: promise/ gift/response. The first rehearsal is titled Advent/Christmas/Epiphany and the second Lent/Easter/Pen­tecost. During the intervening thirty-plus weeks, we live out that drama in our “ordinary” daily life. Thus Lent crescendos this week as a play within the play. Excitement is rampant as we dress for our parts, ready to pass…
