Good Morning Lakes Church!!
What a beautiful Sunday we had this past weekend! Not only were we blessed with unseasonably warm and sunny weather, but we were also blessed with a beautiful weekend service at all three of our locations! Praise God!
This weekend I had a chance to watch/listen in on our kids ministry Lakes Kids! – wow – we’ve got some talented teachers and volunteers in there genuinely loving and caring for our children! Kudos to them!
We’re gearing up for Easter on 4/8 this year and we’ll need your help! This weekend we’re doing a “spring cleaning” from 10am-2pm at Lakes Church, 138 E Genesee St. We’ve got lots to do and the more hands to help the better!
Speaking of Easter – we’re giving you tools to make sure that’s it’s easy to invite your family, friends, co-workers, and random people on the street to Easter Service. If you were here this past Sunday we’re handing out tickets to Easter Sunday on 4/8 – all we’re asking you to do is hand them out and let God do the rest. 🙂
Lastly, whenever Pastor Sean speaks at Lakes 138 you know it’s going to be a little crazy. This week was no exception. He spoke about Rest – the last of the Life Apps in our most recent series. He reminded us that God made a Saboath day for a reason – because he knew we would get carried away with life and would need some down time. Pastor Sean encouraged us to take some time to rest this week. Take some time to spend with our families and to spend some quiet time with God.
To illustrate his point, he had a “willing volunteer”, David to help. Here are some pictures from his illustration. Enjoy. 🙂
Have a great God-filled, restful week!

**Pastor Sean asked David to first run around church, symbolizing the carefree life. Then he added a “wife” (the grizzly bear), kids and all their toys (stuffed animals and toys) and asked him to try running again. This time it was much harder there was so much taking up his attention that it was had to concentrate on the “road” ahead. Pastor Sean’s point was that we get bogged down in life (even with good things too) and we need to take time to rest.
