I’m excited! I don’t know about you, but I am excited about how God has been moving through the lives of people who call The Lake “home”, and for those who just recently began to join us on Sunday mornings; welcoming our Worship Gathering into their home. And, I have to thank all of you for your willingness to not only “Like” our Online gathering, but you make comments; welcoming and encouraging one another; you “Share” the event with your friends, and people all over the country and around the world are joining us on Sunday morning. That excites me!
So, this Sunday, I am requesting your help in continuing this momentum of sending the Gospel around the world, because that’s exactly what’s happening. Most of the world may see this coronavirus as a thorn in their side, a wrench in their plans, but I believe God is using it to spread His Good News; no matter what’s going on around us. The Good News of Jesus is being shared, watched, sang about, and listened to each Sunday. This is also happening in our Lake Kids Ministry and our Lake Students Ministry during the week. And, I believe it is how some of our Connection Groups are staying connected as well; online.
May we continue to see God’s hand move among His church, and as we remain obedient to His call on our life; to Go and Make Disciples, may He continue to bless our efforts in doing all we can to reach as many people as possible with the Good News of Jesus everyday. May God continue to bless you and your family, keeping you safe and protected from this invisible enemy, and may you feel His presence each time you seek Him. Have a blessed rest of your evening, and I will see you this Sunday at 10:00am on Lake Live Online.

Upcoming events at The Lake:
This Sunday we begin a new teaching series, “Not Afraid.” Seems rather appropriate at this time with all the uncertainty of this coronavirus, and how we, as followers of Jesus, should respond in the midst of it all. So, over the next few weeks, we’ll take a closer look at what God’s Word says about how we are to live “Not Afraid.” Join us this Sunday 10:00am, as we continue to gather “Online“ and be sure to Share our gathering on your own social media page; inviting your family and friends to join in with our tie of worship. Hey, why not invite that “One” you’ve been tryin to get to come to church with you; at least they can get a taste of what you have been so excited for them to experience for themselves. We’ll see you his Sunday for The Lake Live Online at 10:00am.
