Not only have we appreciated our fellow Lakelanders sharing their incredible stories, but we enjoy learning what aspects of worship help strengthen their relationship with God. One of our favorite questions to ask: do Lakelanders enjoy preaching, music, Scripture, something else or maybe even a combination?
When we pose the question to Charles he smiles. “One of my favorite parts about service is preaching. I remember early on Dan talking about the only way to feel connected is to put yourself out there…to get into a small group, to serve. If you’re just coming in and out of service you’re not going to feel like you belong.”
Charles chuckles. “Ironically enough after Dan preached about that I heard it from another pastor. And I thought ‘Really, okay, I get it.’”
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they existed and were created.”
