Habitat for Humanity Update

During these challenging times Lakeview UMC continues its support for Habitat for Humanity, Central Arizona. Unfortunately, Habitat’s building efforts have been greatly constrained during the COVID pandemic due to lack of available building sites, much longer times to receive building permits and inspections, restrictions on the number of people who can work on a site at any given time, etc. These challenges were made known to the larger community through a “Habitat Construction Night” Zoom meeting held on January 28th.…

Tales from the Mountain March 2021

1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured…

You Are Never Alone – Update

You Are Never Alone, a Bible study of the miracle stories in the Gospel According to John the Apostle WEEK THREE In our first week of this Lenten Study, we learned that our prayers always are heard and in time, a response will come.

While many of you have been able to stay in contact using on-line services, we realize some of you have had very little contact with your church family. Staying in touch is so much harder than it used to be. With this letter, I hope to give you a snap-shot of some ways…

Habitat 2020 Wrap-Up

Certainly 2020 has been a challenging year on most fronts, but Lakeview UMC’s support of Habitat for Humanity for Central Arizona continues steadfast.  Even without regular in-person church services and the distribution of coin collection boxes, and with a much shortened giving campaign due to  COVID-19, total Lakeview giving in 2020 came within $375 of matching our 2019 contributions. For 2020 the Missions & Outreach Committee collected $2410 in campaign contributions and added another $500 from its own budget for…

From the Pastor’s Desk

The Bible has much to say about new beginnings, here are a few: 1 Peter 1:3Praise be to the God and Father…
