Relationship with others

We were made for relationships, not only a relationship with God but also relationships with other people. This is evident throughout the Bible, from the institution of marriage in Genesis to the institution of Church in the New Testament. Life was made by God to be lived in community with other people. This is especially true of the Christian life. It is impossible to honor God and grow as a Christian without living in community with other Christians. This is why God, in his goodness and wisdom, created such a thing as the Church; Christians need each other for life and godliness. Even a quick glance through the New Testament reveals how vital community is. Most books in the New Testament are written to churches or groups of people not just an individual person. Most of the New Testament commands are directed towards “one another” – there are commands to serve one another, love one another, confess sin to one another, and encourage one another, just to name a few. There is no escaping it: we need each other.

Family Ministries

We desire to equip and encourage parents to effectively train their children in the Christian faith from infancy to adulthood.

Life Classes

Love, Instruction, Fellowship & Evangelism
As we seek to make disciples, we are doing so in a way that acknowledges our need for each other. The primary way this happens is through our LIFE Classes. LIFE stands for love, instruction, fellowship, and evangelism; these are the 4 elements we strive to have as a part of each one of these small group Bible studies. Our sense of community isn’t limited to LIFE Classes. Community happens where normal life happens: at home, at work, at school, with family, with friends. Biblical community is just that: biblical. We strive to make each of the elements of the community in our church centered around Scripture.

Men

We are committed to providing Christ-centered activities to women in all walks of life; seeking to involve every woman in growing in their love for God, the church, and the world.

Tuesday Morning Prayer Time

This prayer time is open to every man in the church. Guys get together every Tuesday morning in our lobby.  It starts at 6:30 am and ends no later than 7:00 am so you can get on your way to work.

Outside of LIFE Classes, there are two other opportunities for men to study the Bible together.

Every Wednesday

This group meets at 6:45pm and works through books of the Bible together. Led by Bill Kunkle. Contact the church for more details.

Monthly

In 2016, we are beginning a new Men’s Bible Study that will meet once a month on Saturday mornings. This Bible study will start January 9th and will focus on the book of Proverbs. The study will meet the 2nd Saturday of each month at 7:30am.

Women

We are committed to providing Christ-centered activities to women in all walks of life; seeking to involve every woman in growing in their love for God, the church, and the world.

There are multiple opportunities for the women of our church to gather together in prayer for our church and community.

Moms In Prayer

This is an opportunity for the women in our church who currently have school-age children to pray for not only their own children but also the schools in our community. There are 2 different groups, one meets on Tuesday mornings at 8:30am and the other meets on Friday mornings at 9am.

A second opportunity takes place on the 3rd Monday of each month at 3pm. This is a time for the women of LBC to pray for specific needs of church members and the church as a whole.

Our goal is to provide encouraging, in-depth studies to help all women grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Sessions are typically held in the Fall and Spring of each year. Childcare is available by reservation. Watch the bulletin or call the LBC Office for sign-up information.
