Just ONE Ministry – Orphans Need Each of us

Dr. Russell Moore will be speaking at LBC on Sunday morning, March 1, on the topic of adoption. Dr. Moore, Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is an adoptive father and author of Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches.  We will also be launching our Just ONE ministry (Orphans Need Each of us) on that date. This is an exciting and vital new ministry at LBC and one which will help us to promote the gospel. Please invite family, friends, and neighbors to come and hear Dr. Moore, especially those who are considering adoption or have a passion to be God’s loving arms to the 130 million orphans in the world.
