A Note from Pastor Tim . . .
 

Milestones and momentous occasions are important to celebrate. Most of us do this in our lives when we celebrate a birthday, gather for a wedding or celebrate the life of someone that has passed away. It is a way to “mark” that important event in a person’s life.
 
Ancient Israel used to do this by the placement of “standing stones” in certain geographical locations where they met God or an important event took place, like a victory over an adversary or the crossing of the Jordan River as the Hebrew people entered the Promise Land.
 
This Sunday marks an important occasion for our church. On Sunday, April 18, at 9:30am my Installation Service as the next pastor of Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church will take place. It may seem a bit anticlimactic since I have already been serving as the pastor since November, but it is one of those “standing stone” moments when we give thanks to God for His provision and guidance and ask for His blessing as we move forward together for His Kingdom.
 
It should be a grand celebration with pastors and elders from the Presbytery of San Diego participating along with many of my family and friends in attendance. We will be having a taco bar lunch after the service so come hungry and help celebrate this next chapter in the life of our church.
 
Finally, let’s all give thanks to God for His guidance that led to this moment and pray for His blessings, as we move forward together.

 

Hope to see you on Sunday.

YOU ARE INVITED TO CELEBRATE WITH US AFTER WORSHIP


Following our worship and the service of Installation for Pastor Tim on, we will be celebrating God’s provision through this transition. We have a taco lunch being served in the patio area between the sanctuary and the church office.

The congregation will be dismissed by rows at the end of the services. Please proceed to the patio for beverages and lunch. We will have an ice cream station after lunch.

We are taking all the necessary precautions to make sure that this is a Covid-safe event. We hope that all in attendance will be comfortable joining in this time of celebration.
 
 

WE ARE BACK IN THE SANCTUARY  ~ REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE

 

 
God tells us that we are to treat other people the way that we would want to be treated. During Covid, many people are scared and doing whatever they can to protect themselves from this virus.
 
So when we gather to worship, we thank you for: wearing your masks, abstaining from singing in the congregation (even with your mask on), staying 6 feet apart from people you don’t live with, allowing volunteers to serve the coffee and food items, and for using the hand sanitizers available in and around the campus. 
 
It is very important that only our coffee servers hand you the items rather than having everyone reach out and take what they want. We have been waiting a year to have a coffee time again. Waiting a few extra minutes to get your coffee will be worth the wait.
 

We know that some of you like to take notes during the service, especially during the message, so please bring a pen to take notes. A lined-blank page for this purpose is provided.

 

Since we have moved to the Orange Tier, even with social distancing, we have plenty of room in the sanctuary, so why not ask a friend to join you at the service?

 

Rather than passing the plate, there will be a box to safely make donations of tithes and offerings, which are important to the continued operation of our church.   (Continued on page 4.)

 

 
 

WALK, TALK & PRAYER

You’re invited to join Pastor Tim on Thursdays at 11am for “Walk, Talk & Prayer.” We will go for a short walk near the church and take some time to talk and pray for Lakeside and East County, so wear your walking shoes and masks.
Hope to see you then. 
 

PRAYER

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

 

Please visit our prayer page and lift up the prayer requests sent to us via our website then click on the praying hand to encourage those seeking our good and gracious Father through intercessory prayer by the people of God.

 

If you would like prayer, after the worship service, Elders and Deacons will be available for prayer.

 

SUNDAY ADULT STUDY VIA ZOOM

Class at 11:30 AM begins April 25

 
 
 
This will be an 8-part series. Do Christians place their hope in a lie? Is the resurrection of Jesus simply an ancient hoax invented by the church? Many people hold that view today. But those who reject the empty tomb fail to make sense of the unavoidable evidence from both Scripture and history. The verdict is in: Christ is risen, and our lives will never be the same. In this teaching series, Dr. Gabe Fluhrer makes a compelling case for Christ’s victory over the grave. Not only is His resurrection a historical fact, but it presents the true answer to our deepest questions and provides every Christian believer with undying hope.
 
 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into
a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

1 Peter 1:1-3
