MISSIONS

 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).

Lakeview is very active and dedicated to supporting a multitude of missions that extent the hand of Christian fellowship to people in the local community and abroad.

1.  A new mission for Lakeview is New Life for Haiti.  Pastor Steven’s spouse, Joanna, shares her views on this important mission and how it serves the storm and earthquake ravaged people of Haiti.  Listen here to her explanation of this mission, one that her father, Fran Leeman is engaged  inside this Caribbean country.  New Life for Haiti is featured at Lakeview this March as its “Mission of the Month”. Watch this youtube video of some of the successes achieved through this mission.  Visit their Facebook page by clicking here.

2.  Each month Lakeview selects a mission as their “Mission-of-the-Month” for special recognition and support.  The Mission for July is the Saving Grace Ministriesa local charity with the mission  to provide a smooth transition to community life for men and women recently released from a correctional facility by providing a highly-structured program based on
Christian principles.  A special collection will be received during July to help this mission. To learn more click here.

2.  An ongoing outreach effort has been Lakeview’s enthusiastic support for the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf.  The contributions of the Lakeview congregation have always been generous.  August is special as there is a specific challenge. This year the challenge is to collect 1800 boxes of mashed potatoes.

Last year the August Challenge was to collect 1500 boxes of macaroni and cheese which is a two-month supply. Through the generosity of friends, families, neighbors and co-workers, the total collected was 2128 boxes.

The year before the August Challenge was to collect 800 jars of pasta sauce – the total collected was 1328 jars.

Donations may be dropped off at the church on Sunday mornings. Volunteers will also be at the church on Saturday, August 25th, from 9am to 1pm to accept donations. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated.

3.  Lakeview is honored to belong to a coalition of several Town of Greece Churches who have come together to support Mission Share Outreach Center on an on-going basis. Mission Share was formed to provide for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people in our community.  Volunteers are always needed to help with the many fund raising and assistance activities of Mission Share.
