Night of Prayer 


Every Monday night at 7:00. On some evenings there is "directed prayer" for a particular focus, but there is always time for you to pray for the things on your heart and mind. This prayer meeting is held in the home of an LVP Church member; please call the office for directions.


Prayer is talking and listening to God. It is sharing our thoughts, questions, fears, desires - opening our lives to God, holding nothing back. It is telling God our admiration for who He is, and contemplating His qualities. It is listening while He talks to us, providing comfort, peace, guidance, and direction requiring our worshipful obedience.

Prayer is also solidarity. Just as Jesus bore our burdens on His cross, we bear the burdens of others as if they were our own, laying them before the Father. In prayer, we approach Him in the names of those who don't yet know Jesus, asking God to bring them into His family. Through special focuses, we unite in crying out to the Father, that His heavenly kingdom would break through on earth.

To share a prayer request with the church family, send an email to office@lakeviewpark.org.

"Present Tense" 


After “turkey day” came and went last year, a pastor challenged church members to ask one another not “How was your Thanksgiving?” but “How is your Thanksgiving?” After all, giving thanks should be an ongoing act.

That doesn’t always need to be profoundly deep, either. A.J. Jacobs, author of Thanks a Thousand, once asked a philosophy-professor friend what he was grateful for. The shockingly simple reply? “Sometimes I’m just grateful I have arms.” That odd but spot-on answer shows the importance, Jacobs says, of being “thankful for things so omnipresent that they can escape our notice.”

So … how is your Thanksgiving?
