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 people of Lakeview are doing their best to fulfill their pledges and give with generous hearts. The reason I believe this is that all the income for July came from the Lakeview people themselves, which shows that our prayers are working. Last year at this time the financials showed Lakeview in a better position by about$19,000 BUT that extra money came from outside resources that are no longer available to Lakeview.
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.
So continue to pray for God’s guidance, give what is in your heart to give, and God’s Blessings to All.

You can continue to use “leftover” envelopes from previous years by changing the date on them. There are also white pew envelopes in the Chapel and Worship Center for your use. Or if you prefer, you can skip envelopes entirely by contributing online or by credit card or debit card at the kiosk in the Chapel, Worship Center, or church office.
