A Passion for God

Psalm 79:1-9 By Harry C. Kiely The heartache of tragic loss is an experience common to most of us. A severe family crisis related to job loss, the sudden death of a loved one, the revelation of infidelity, a devastating flood­ these kinds of trials push us to the wall and make us cry out. In those circumstances, how shall we pray? Dare we come to God and bare our true feelings, even feelings that God has in some way…

A Stephen Minister Story

A Stephen Minister Story Steve Feith, a retired naval officer married with two children and four grandchildren, loves to ride his motorcycle, smoke cigars, and play golf. He learned about Stephen Ministry at church, but thought it wasn’t for him. He just wasn’t into “emotional” stuff. Yet, as a naval officer, it had been his job to fix problems sailors brought to him. In training for Stephen Ministry, Steve, a fix-it person, learned that Christ, not himself, would fix people…

Surpassingly, Overabounding!

Jeremiah 4:11-12, 22-28 By Rebekah Miles and Len Delony This week’s reading from Jeremiah describes the people of Judah as they await imminent destruction by an invading army. The prophet’s vision of the near future is grim. The coming destruction seems to undo the very act of creation itself – making the earth “waste and void” and robbing the heavens of their light. “The whole land shall be a desolation.” “The earth mourns.” The coming destruction signals God’s judgment on…

Stephen Ministry

The risen Christ told his followers to teach, heal and give hope to people wherever they  meet  them. As Christ’s disciples, we are directed to do likewise.  St. Paul  said  we  should  bear one another’s burdens.  These directives from the early Christian church shape and mold the ministry of offering care and comfort in today’s world just as they did so long ago. Stephen Ministry Stephen Ministry was begun in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1975, to ensure that lay ministers…

Pastor John’s View for September 2019

For some of our Lakeview Family, the summer has included travels home for the summer, family visits, vacations to near and far and other adventures. Soon our winter residents will be returning and the pace of life here at Lakeview will pick up again. If you are one of those who have been traveling, I hope you’ve stayed in touch by watching Lakeview Live on Sundays or later watching the worship recording. You can also share the experience if you…

Financial Report for September 2019

Finance Report As  you  can  see  from the Financial  Report Summary below, our church went into a hole for July Year-to-Date by  a  little  over $25,000.  While this is a lot of money, the people of Lakeview are continuing to be more generous than last year.  The actual expenses for July Year-to-Date are still running less than budget by almost a $1,000, which is very helpful.  Summer seems to be a difficult time for giving but I believe that the…

Being a Disciple

Psalm 139:1-6 By R. Charles Perry Most people are familiar with examinations. They take various forms: physical, mental-even spiritual. Many churches offer worshipers an opportunity during the Holy Communion service to examine themselves inwardly and spiritually. The psalmist reminds us of God’s examination of us: “Lord, you have examined me and you know me” (REB). The Lord knows where we go and what we say. The psalmist is aware of the omniscience of God, the infinite knowledge that God has…

Coming to Comfort

Jeremiah 1:4-10 By Dave Brauer-Rieke God comes to comfort. God comes to heal, to disturb, to reorganize, to destroy and overthrow, to build up and plant. Ours is an active and involved God with plans, hopes, dreams, and visions. Cover to cover the Bible gives testimony to this fact. Some of the most spiritually influential people in my life have been those who teach me to see or watch. Some days I wake up wondering what I have to do…
