As you can see from the Financial Report Summary below for April, our church not only made up the approximate $11,000 that we were behind for March year-to-date but April year-to-date is ahead by about + $1,500. I and the whole financial committee want to thank all of you for your prayers and for giving over and above what you normally do to put the church in the positive as we head into the summer months. In addition to the great and generous giving, our actual expenses are still running about $9,000 less than what we had budgeted for the year through April. This is really good news and a real answer to prayer. I know that we still have the summer months to continue to pray about but at this time last year, we were about $8,000 behind.
I am continuing to ask the Finance Committee members as well as the congregation 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 loves us and wants the best for us so that we can fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the Good News to as many people as we can about Jesus Christ. We continue to reach more people through the on-line televised Sunday morning services which also helps spread God’s message far and wide. So continue to pray for God’s guidance and give what is in your heart to give. God’s Blessings to All.
