Announcements for June 13, 2021…
In response to the new guidance about mask wearing from the CDC and New York State, we are no longer asking those who have been fully vaccinated for Covid-19 to wear a mask during our Sunday worship or meetings at Lakeview Community Church. As those striving to have our hearts open to God and to neighbor, we ask that everyone show love and respect whether or not other people continue to wear masks at Lakeview. If you have any questions or comments about this new policy at Lakeview, please feel free to contact anyone on consistory.
Lakeview has a new Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83755722310. Please click on this link to join our meetings from now on.
We are still keeping a record of who is in attendance in case someone tests positive for Covid-19. If you should test positive for Covid after attending our worship, please let us know so that we can take appropriate action.
The Consistory would like to phase out our use of Zoom during our Sunday morning worship. This Sunday will be our last Sunday with Zoom available. Consistory would be happy to hear any comments or concerns you may have.
For the next few months, we are entering a new sermon series at Lakeview entitled “Entrusted,” where we’ll be exploring the “good treasure” of the gospel as it’s shared with us in the Heidelberg Catechism. Each week’s sermon will still be focused on a particular passage of scripture, but the catechism will be our most important conversation partner. During this sermon series, there are copies of the Heidelberg Catechism in the narthex that you are free to borrow! There are also several copies of a daily devotional through the Heidelberg Catechism, written by my friend, Stephen Shaffer. Please, take one or the other and spend some time with it this summer! I would also love to meet with you if you have read through parts of the catechism and you have questions about it. –Pastor Steven
