Lakeview United Methodist Church has been recognized by United Methodist Communications (UMCom) as an official "Welcoming Congregation

Welcoming congregations are a selected group of United Methodist congregations nationwide that meet certain criteria, including welcoming newcomers and providing opportunities in discipleship. This program is a part of an effort by the Methodist Church's communications agency to use the public media to spread the news of Christ to the world. Using "Open hearts, open minds, open doors" as the theme of our denominational effort, we hope to connect with those searching for hope and help them connect with our Church family.

Lakeview United Methodist Church is now accepting online tithes and offerings exclusively through our church website. We are using EasyTithe, a well-established safe and secure online giving service.  EasyTithe allows one time donations or automatic recurring donations.  It also provides email receipts, automated donor notifications, and historical giving reports.
