Plans continue for the summer ministry programs at Lakeshore. As people continue to be vaccinated and numbers improve, we are moving forward with plans for in person events. To help us with our planning we ask your help in filling out this short survey regarding Vacation Bible Camp (July 12-16) and the all church family retreat (August 6-8).

Prayer for Today
Below is a portion of a prayer from Howard Thurman’s book, The Inward Journey, “The Experience of Ingathering.”
“We hold in a special place of tenderness those who have suffered deeply from great violences, families that are bereft because of death caused by murder and the angry spirit; families that are distraught because of illnesses which do not respond to any of the incisive technical ministry of the hand skilled in healing and the mind disciplined in the art of therapy…
God, close present Father, we do not know how to ask of Thee, we do not know what to say: Thou wilt give speech to our needs. We offer both the cloud of witnesses to human need and our concern, to Thee for Sanctuary, Healing, and Redemption. We wait for the movement of Thy Spirit in our hearts and in our minds that we may be led into paths of service as Thy living agents. Grant, our Father, that we may not betray Thy urgency either through self-love, self-pity or fear – this our souls cannot abide. Deliver us from so great a temptation. Amen.”
