Making Christlike Disciples in Western North Carolina and in the Nations
Lakeview sponsors several ministries to help us accomplish our mission.
Here is a brief summary of each one.
Group/Nursing Home Ministries
Our Lay-led ministry to area group and nursing homes is making a positive impact in an otherwise overlooked demographic group. By reaching out to those who are institutionalized, we are seeking to obey the Lord's commission to visit the sick. The recipients of this ministry are responding in wonderful ways to the care they receive at the hands of our loving volunteers.
Prisoner Encouragement Ministry
Yet another lay-led ministry is focused on several inmates in prisons from North Carolina to New Jersey. This ministry is reaching into a world that is foreign to most with the loving care and compassion of Christ. This ministry is growing as word-of-mouth helps us to reach more and more men behind bars with the message of a God Who brings Hope in the Valley. Another ministry Lakeview has offered in the recent past is a ministry to the families of those incarcerated, who are often the forgotten victims.

Something to Ponder
He does much who loves much. He does much who does a thing well. He does well who serves the common good rather than his
own interests.-Thomas a' Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
