Dear Lake Avenue Family,

I am writing to express my deepest and heartfelt gratitude to you and every member of our entire congregation for the generosity of time, talent and financial support given so freely to Lake Avenue Church this year. Your involvement and commitment is a reflection of Lake’s Christ-centered mission to participate in God’s reconciling work and make disciples of all people and generations. Thank you!

Your faith, financial support and partnership, along with the contributions of many of our church members and staff have strengthened and grown Lake’s numerous ministries and service projects. In addition to our Vacation Bible School in June which served 550 children, we also hosted our largest ever Summer Exploration of the Arts Camp in July with over 140 children. In August our student summer camps, which drew over 160 from Club45 to High School, saw many make first-time commitments and renewals of faith. Our Family Ministries, Worship & the Arts and Adult Ministries Classic Car Nights continue to reach and engage people from the community and introduce them to ministries and LAC Family.

So many of our members are active in other ministries and organizations serving important needs in the Pasadena area, such as Stars, Door of Hope, the Walter Hoving Home and many others. Our people truly are the “light and salt” Jesus called us to be.

And it goes far beyond Pasadena. This past year the LAC Family contributed to relief efforts after the devastating hurricanes in Puerto Rico and Texas. We even sent a team of high school students to Texas to help with clean up and rebuilding.  In these efforts we have also partnered with other ministries like World Vision, Attack Poverty and Urban Strategies.

Then there was Rayaq Church in the Baqaa Valley of Lebanon, near the Syrian border where Pastor Milad Haddad and his congregation are giving relief to Syrian refugees. Lake sent a team to join that effort in helping teach and develop a playground - a true oasis in that war-ravaged world. And we continue to dialogue in our ongoing partnership to see more people come to Jesus.

The list goes on and on. Through your extreme generosity of time, energy and tithes, Lake has had a most dynamic year here, within our congregation, throughout Pasadena and in far flung places through the work of our many international staff. Thank you one and all!

May I make one more appeal?  With your help we have indeed accomplished much. Yet, as we approach the fiscal year end, we are approximately $400,000 short of our income goal for the year. In order to continue the dynamic ministries and outreach of Lake Avenue Church, would you prayerfully consider a special offering to help us reach that goal? Together we can continue to do amazing things in service to our Creator.

Again, may I express to you deepest and heartfelt gratitude.


To His glory alone,
