God is someone who can be trusted. We can put our confidence in him. Pastor Alex looks at Psalm 11 to see how God is both near to us, and in control of the big picture, so we can put our full trust in him.
It’s always nice having a guide and someone who can speak up for us. This week, hear from John 16 about how the Holy Spirit is our advocate and guide as we honor the high school seniors at LakeView.
Have you ever gotten something mostly right, but a little wrong? Sometimes being close just doesn’t cut it. It’s the same with who we say Jesus is. If we’re mostly right, but a little off, it can have negative consequences on our faith. Pastor Alex continues our series through the Gospel of Mark and challenges us to see the signs and recognize who Jesus is.
Pastors Andy Fuqua and Alex Unis, and elder Ryan Horrisberger give a “state of the church address.” Together we look at the state of the Church in the world today, what God has been doing in our own church of LakeView, and where God is leading us as we move forward.
Pastor Alex Unis continues the Christmas Songs series with a message from Luke 2:29-32. God answered an old man’s prayer by allowing Simeon to see Jesus on His first visit to the temple at just eight days old. Simeon had waited decades to see God’s salvation, and was overjoyed to meet the Lord. How patiently do we wait on God? And are we filled with joy when He answers our prayers?
Pastor Alex brings the story of Hosea and Gomer. God told Hosea to marry an unfaithful woman, named Gomer, as a living parable and a symbol of the ancient Isrealites' unfaithfulness to God. In spite of her adultery, Hosea forgave her and redeemed her and restored their relationship. In the same way, God loves us unconditionally–even when we are faithless, He is faithful. God loves us, God loves you, with a never-stopping, unbreakable, eternal covenant love.
