I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. (3 John 1:2)
In this world you will have trouble, BUT FEAR NOT…
Ever since our Lord and Savior loved us, entrusted us with His passionate Cause; shared His inheritance with us His Ambassadors here on Earth, we the Church have faced troubling times. Some much more challenging than others. He told us these would come. He prepared us.
Storms rattle and shake, but as we make the Lord and His Kingdom our first priority, our treasure, we stand and even rest peacefully, confidently, and securely. He alone is our Rock. Our Fortress. Our Deliverer! Our confidence is not in circumstances, people, or mammon. We are NEVER left alone! We look to Him not the waves.
HOW IS LAKEHAVEN RESPONDING?
LakeHaven, in light of these circumstances, we remain prayerfully vigilant with determined obedience to Holy Spirit guided instruction & wisdom.
We respect your personal decision should you choose to completely isolate yourself for health or other reasons. We expect that you will – first and foremost – listen to the Holy Spirit within you to guide your decisions.
Stay connected with one another. Pray for one another. Call & encourage one another. Love one another & show care for your neighbors around you. This is a great opportunity to “shine your light”, don’t hide it. Let people see your good deeds, your love, your hope and confidence.
YOU are indwelt! YOU are Jesus to this world!
Together, in Christ, His love, and for His Kingdom Cause!

PS. Our Governor here in Florida made it very clear in his Executive Order on 4/1 that during this time of rampant fear, church is considered an “Essential Activity”.
