yEAR IN REVIEW
JOINING GOD IN THE RENEWAL OF ALL THINGS
MESSAGE FROM JOE
One of the best things about 2020 is that it forced us to affirm what matters. The break from our regular routines and expectations challenged us all to pay close attention to the essential parts of our lives. And as a church community, it was a clear reminder of how much we need one another.
Since we spent most of the year apart, I thought it might be a good idea to share a sampling of some of the things that came to life in and through the Lakeview Church community these past twelve months. I am so encouraged by our church, so proud of our staff and volunteer teams, and so thankful for the ways that God has been with us.
So as you take in this Year in Review, I hope you will come to the same conclusion as I have: We had a good year.
