A Letter From the Elders at Lake Forest

To the Church Family at Lake Forest,

God’s great blessings have allowed us to see the beginning of another year. We are thankful for His many blessings and are conscious of His expectations for us. We are excited about the wonderful possibilities that God has in store for us in 2019. This year is sure to present many challenges to us and we are prayerful that each one will be met with a Christ-like attitude and an unwavering commitment to God and His truth.

In 2018 we saw souls who obeyed the gospel or who rededicated their lives to the Lord. We had some who placed their membership with us, while others moved away. We also lost a few who went on to receive their reward from the Savior. Through it all our commitment to God is as strong as it has ever been. We thank each of you for being an important part of God’s kingdom here at Lake Forest. We are excited to see what the year ahead has in store for us!

As you know, each year we seek to set a theme for the year to help us focus on the goals we wish to achieve. We have had some very meaningful and important themes in years past. Once again this year we have selected a new theme. However, we want to remind you that we intend to remember our themes from the past and build upon them. This is important for us if we are to continue to grow. Our theme for this year is “Defending The Faith”. The verse we wish to focus on with our theme comes from 1 Peter 3:15.

Our theme for 2019 is one that is designed to encourage and equip us in defending our God and His holiness.  1 Peter 3:15 states, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”  There are so many contrary views in our world today that we are constantly bombarded with.  Our theme aims to help us defend our faith and how God's word commands us to live in the world today. Lessons will be presented the first Sunday of the month that will focus on our theme for 2019.

We as your elders stand always ready to serve and help you in anyway that we can. Please do not hesitate to call upon us.

May God’s blessings be upon us all,
The Elders
