Heifer Update for June 2020

Good news!  Our donation of April 27th has been matched.  The total to date for the Flock Sale Two was 25 flocks., with the match – 27. The following is what can and has happened with a flock of chicks. Georgina Perez received her flock of chicks in Mexico. Heifer training taught her how to care for her flock.  Soon her chicks were growing rapidly.  Then they began laying eggs, and more eggs than her family could eat.  Heifer connected…

Habitat for Humanity

Like every other organization, Habitat for Humanity has been impacted by the Corona virus.  Virtually all of Habitat’s central Arizona building projects have been suspended since March.  The only exception was the completion of one home, as it was in its final stages when the recommendations to quarantine were just beginning.  But the organization stands ready to return to providing housing options for struggling families once the critical period of infections has passed.  In the interim, Habitat is doing whatever…

Financial Report for April 2020

Financial Report for April 2020 PRAISE GOD For Another Good Month at Lakeview!! As you can see   below everyone who calls Lakeview home did another GOOD job in April of following God’s lead to give generously.  We continued to have a positive in the month of April and our Year-to-Date (YTD) continued to show a positive amount over $6,500.  Another reason this is so great is because based on past experiences, we were expecting April YTD to be about $8,900…

Pastor John’s View June 2020

Tales from the Mountain Evan as I wrote the title for this month’s article, I had to stop and just say, “Whoa! How did we get to June and at this time of writing, I still have no idea when we will actually worship together physically. I think I was eleven when dad and I drove out to the cinder hills east of Flagstaff in our 1948 Willy’s Jeep. It was painted battleship grey and had a homemade plywood top.…

When Will We Worship Together Again

Reconnecting 2020 March 15 was our last “in-person” worship and since, we’ve been apart but together in Christ’s Spirit and through the blessing of technology allowing us to see one another and even connect despite some being thousands of miles away. But it’s not the same, is it? When will we be able to open the sanctuary doors? Governor Ducy’s order has expired and business is re-opening across the state, and you may legitimately ask, “Why aren’t we going back…

Sunday Worship When the Sanctuary is Empty

I think all of us wondered what would happen when we were left with few choices for worship on Sunday when it became necessary to stop meeting at the campus for a time. Lakeview is truly blessed with the Media Arts Team led by Glad Kynaston along with Johnson and Toni. We have been live-streaming to YouTube and Facebook for nearly three years. This is the “television” of the future and we have our own “channel”, Lakeview Alive. Up through…

A Word from Bishop Bob

May 6, 2020 Dear Members and Friends of the Desert Southwest Conference, A week ago, I posted my update regarding the directive to suspend all in-person worship and gatherings in churches and ministry settings in the Desert Southwest Conference. Since then, in consultation with many sources and in conversations with persons with scientific and medical expertise and experience, I have determined that we must continue the suspension. This is not a simple nor is it an easy decision. I am…
