As you can see from the Financial Report Summary below for May, our church went into a hole for May Year-to-Date by almost $8,500. While this is a lot of money, the people of Lakeview are continuing to give generously but by a little less than what is needed. The actual expenses for May Year-to-Date were $15,000 under budget, which is very helpful. Summer seems to be a difficult time for giving but I believe the people of Lakeview are doing their best to fulfill their pledges and give with a generous heart. I am continuing to ask everyone at Lakeview to continue to pray for God’s Word to be fulfilled so that
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7).
I do believe we have cheerful givers at Lakeview.
The good news is that we have a Risen Savior who wants the best for us so that we can fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the Good News and not to worry about what is happening in the world because our God is in charge and no matter what happens God will continue to love us as He did when He sent His Son Jesus Christ to be our Savior. So continue to pray for God’s guidance and give what is in your heart to give. God’s Blessings to All.
