Celebration Sunday

It’s Time to celebrate!  Next Sunday, August 30th, is the day we have set aside to come together and thank God for all He has done, and is doing.  We’ll begin with everyone (children included) in the sanctuary at 9:30 AM.  At around 10:00, we’ll split into age group sections for some focused time to look at our LIFE Classes for the coming year.  Morning worship will follow at 10:45 where we anticipate a challenging message about being involved in God’s mission and living out what we believe.

During our evening worship, we will watch video clips of our “summer of service” and hear a few stories of those who were involved.

We look forward to celebrating with you!

Adopt a College Student 2008

The Adopt a Student Ministry was started four years ago as a way to keep in touch with our college students through prayer, cards, and small gifts. Statistics show that the majority of youth will walk away from church and the Lord after they graduate from high school. Our aim with this ministry is to keep students connected with LBC and to stand in the gap for them through prayer.
Please take a moment to ask God if He is calling you to be a part of this ministry, then stop by the adoption table in the foyer to get all the details.
