OUR THEME IN APRIL IS: ALREADY AND NOT YET

The Christian life is a continuous walk between the already and the not yet. Through faith in Jesus, we already have reconciliation with God, but we aren’t with God yet. We already have the forgiveness of our sins, but we aren’t free of sin yet. We already love Jesus, but we have yet to see Him face to face. Our citizenship is already in heaven, but our street address is definitely not yet celestial.

 

But here’s the promise that remains: When Christ appears, “we will be like Him because we will see Him as He is” (1 John 3:2).

 

So don’t give up on tomorrow just because today is hard. We already have Jesus, even if we can’t see His face yet. We have hope and peace and life. We have the promise of so much more, and we have each other until we get there. The more we can set our minds on the “not yet,” the better we will steward the “already.” And the more we celebrate the “already,” the stronger our convictions will grow for all that is yet to come. Praise God that our future is as good as done by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. 

 

Join us this April as we explore this theme. We meet on Sundays at 10:30 am in-person or online on YouTube or our website. Did you miss Sunday's service? Click here to watch the recording.

Faith Comes by Hearing is our missions project for AprilHere are some staggering facts: Earth's population numbers in the billions, and it's growing every day. There are over 7,100 languages spoken all over the world. 70% of people alive today primarily learn through audible communication, and 50% cannot read at a functional level. How will they ever hear the Gospel? 

Faith Comes By Hearing has come alongside the worldwide translation community in a movement to finish the task - to ensure that everyone on earth has access to Jesus Christ’s Gospel in a format they can understand. Visit the Missions page to learn more.

TLC MISSIONS

The Lakeside Church is a missions-minded church. We partner with local, national and international organizations in their missions to go and share the good news of freedom, hope and new life in Jesus Christ with our world. We give so they can go. 

We also support the 340 million Christians worldwide who face high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith in Jesus.

This year, TLC will partner with 12 organizations that do missions work locally and internationally. We will highlight one organization per month and come alongside them as they tangibly spread the love of Jesus to a hurting and needy world.

Please click here to support these worthy causes.

PERSECUTED.jpg

Amazingly, the 340 million persecuted believers around the world don’t look to us to end their struggle. Instead, these courageous men and women ask for just two things: Scripture resources and prayers.

Please click here to see how you can help to support them.

Pastor Brian baptized me one year ago and provided great comfort when I was sick. He encouraged me to maintain my faith and rely on Jesus. He is a teacher, an older brother, and a protector to me. His warm smile, kindness, and unwavering strength encourage me to keep my faith.
