Thank You from Pastor Linda

Dear Lakeviewers, Friends and Family,

I am so very grateful for the wonderful Thank You Celebration held on April 18th. You are a blessing for me yesterday, today and always. I am so very grateful for your support and encouragement. Thank you, Pastor Dave, Pastor Stuart, Larnell, kitchen crew, Lakeview choir, Staff Parish members and each member of our wonderful church staff for making the evening such a great success!

Many of you brought me gifts in the form of cash, checks or gift cards. I am very grateful for your kindness to me. I want you to know that I will use them; however, I intend to contribute their value in the form of a personal check to our Foundation to benefit the scholarship fund for seminary students. We have benefitted so much from the help that fund gave to Pastor Stuart. I want to be a small part of generating more resources for other students as they come along. I remember vividly my own need for financial help when I began my years in seminary training. If we are to continue to encourage and support more adults to enter into ministry, these resources are very important for adults entering a time of familial financial sacrifices. Please join me in considering this area of financial support for our Foundation in your wills and in you annual gifting.

Pastors are one of the best educated professional people and serve for the least pay of any group of well-educated men and women in our country. However, monetary rewards are not the reason such a commitment is ever made. Walking alongside people like all of you and sharing our witness to God’s work through Christ Jesus with you and through your own witness and service are our sole reasons to join a life of service to our Lord and Savior..

HUGS TO ALL!

Pastor Linda
