Pastor John’s View May 2020

Tales from the Mountain December 13, 1967. I don’t remember a lot of dates (though I ALWAYS remember Valerie’s birthday and our anniversary!!!) but this date sticks in my mind. It was the day that two weather fronts collided over Flagstaff and then decided to hang out for a few days dropping 84” of snow; 7 feet! I was just 8 years-old and staying at my cousin, Tim’s house on Fort Valley Road, just outside the city limits, though in…

Heifer Report for May 2020

Heifer Update Quack,Quack,Quack.  That’s one quack from each of the three flocks of ducks that were sent out today. Three more families will be able to free themselves from hunger and poverty.  I am so proud that the Lakeview United Methodist Men have such outstanding support. I haven’t for some time given you the calculation of how many families have been blessed by your generosity.  I’ll do that next week.  You and I will be amazed at the numbers.  We…

DIAL – A – PRAYER

Just this past week, I was responsible for daily recordings of reflections on Scripture on Lakeview’s Dial-A-Prayer. I wondered how many of our Lakeview family and followers begin, continue, or end their days with prayer and reflection. After all, God is in charge here, and we need his directioning. One of the amazing benefits of calling Dial-A-Prayer is that we have guided Scripture lessons, reflections and prayer time – generally contained in about six or seven minutes. The phone number…

Caring in Spite of Corona

The Corona Virus deters us from being together physically, but that hasn’t stopped our church members from helping each other. Several of our ladies  made protective masks on their sewing machines for the church staff and for the single moms at UMOM in downtown Phoenix.  The virus hasn’t stopped members from picking up and delivering needed groceries to friends and neighbors who cannot leave their homes.  Our members are reaching out to check on each other by phone and internet. …

Financial Report – April 2020

Financial Report for February and March 2020 PRAISE GOD, PRAISE GOD, AND PRAISE GOD!!!!!!!!!!! I just wanted to keep everyone informed of the Financial Situation at Lakeview during these times of the Coronavirus.  The virus has made it much more difficult to communicate but I will be using Lakeviewumc.net website to pass on information as often as I can.  First, let’s talk about February, since we did not have a Newsletter to report February’s financial results, I first want to…

HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN, INDEED!

I am going to miss greeting you in person with that exclamation of Easter’s message, but we will still proclaim the risen Christ Easter morning as we worship together online. If you join with me as we intentionally step into the morning when the tomb was discovered to be empty and we celebrate the reality of God’s promise fulfilled on that morning, then we are in worship as one body. It is exciting to see people joining us from across…

Our Third Worship Online

Here we are entering our third worship online. We certainly miss seeing each of you live and in-person and we will again, soon. I encourage you to work to engage in the worship on-line. Most of my colleagues call this “virtual worship” but that isn’t correct. “Virtual: almost or nearly, but not completely or according to strict definition.” “Worship: to show reverence and adoration to God.” We can worship anywhere and everywhere any time. People have told me for years…
