Ministering Together

Carolyn Matthews

May 21, 2021

July 11 is the target date that has been set by the regathering task force for in-house worship. The next day will be the first day of our in-house Vacation Bible Camp.  As we continue to move forward we need folks to consider where they might exercise their gifts in working together in community. Our ministry to children will need a number of people willing to lead and help. Vacation Bible Camp requires us working together, before and during the events of July 12-16 (consider volunteering one, two or all five days). The next VBC leadership/training meeting is Saturday, June 5, at noon.

Listed below in upcoming events is the promotion/graduate recognition on June 13.  We don’t want to overlook anyone so if you have not already done so, please contact Pastor Carolyn with information about the honoree or click here to download and fill out form.

The Lakeshore community has continued to be a serving, ministering community through this pandemic. In moving forward to in-person worship and events, we want to continue to provide a welcoming, loving, safe, and caring environment.
