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…

1Mission 2020

On Saturday, February 29, 2020, the United Methodist Church Desert Southwest Conference sent a group of short-term missionaries to Puerta Peñasco for the 2020 1Mission house building project. Lakeview, Willowbrook and guests joined forces this year with Pastor Ross Parrott,    Susan Briner, Bev Amperse, Liz Peck, Glenn Allinger, Harold Glick, Kim Parks, and Jim and Carole Smith. These nine workers joined together for the second weekend of a four weekend house build. We were very blessed to help build with the…

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…

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!!!!!!!!!!!

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…
