Our monthly magazine, the Signal, gives you a deeper look at what’s going on in and around Lexington Baptist Church. Click the cover image below to read this month’s edition.

October 2017

Our English-as-a-Second Language classes are back on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the third floor of the Chapel Building. If you know someone that would benefit from these classes, invitation cards are available in the church lobby, or contact our Missions Ministry for more information.

 

 

 

 

This fall, we have some amazing Wednesday nights planned for your family. Each week for adults, we have a Pastoral Bible study, as well as two D Groups. You can get all of the details on the groups here, but they all start at 6:30 p.m. weekly. Make plans to eat dinner with us and stay for a great time of learning and fellowship.

 

 

 

 

Through October, our Pastoral Bible Study on Wednesday nights will be devoted to the Reformation and the application of its vital truths to our modern lives. We’re calling it “Faith Alone,” and Dr. Andre Rogers from Columbia International University will lead this study.

 

 

 

 

 

We need your help collecting candy for Light Up the Night (on Thursday, October 26 at 6:30 p.m.)! There are collection bins all around campus and in our Sunday School classrooms. We will be providing breakfast to the adult Sunday School class that brings in the most! Help us reach our goal of 1,000 bags!

 

 

 

 

It's almost time for one of our very favorite events of the year: Light up the Night! Join us Thursday, October 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the main LBC Parking Lot for trunk or treat, rides, games, music and more! Admission is FREE and there will be lots of food trucks on site if you'd like to purchase some dinner or snacks. We hope to see you then! If you would like to volunteer to decorate your trunk, donate candy or help us work the event, email Kristen King.

 

 

 

Sunday, October 29 is the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and we'd love for you to join us for a special Sunday morning service at 9 or 10:30 a.m. If you'd like to learn more of the history behind the Reformation, we invite you to attend our October pastoral Bible study called "Faith Alone" on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.

November

Senior Adults, our next Cornerstone Luncheon will be Thursday, November 2 at 11 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Please come and join us for the second of our two-part series taught by Dan Williams called “Paths of Persecution,” in which we will look at the history of the persecuted Church and today’s cost of being a follower of the Lamb in a Godless society. It all happens in the Fellowship Hall starting with the Bible study at 11 a.m. and then lunch at 11:45. Please make your RSVP by Monday, October 30. The cost is $6 per person, payable at the door. RSVP to Debbie Smith at 803.996.8843/dsmith@lexingtonbaptist.org.

 

 

On Sunday mornings in November, we'll be in a new series called "Against All Odds: The Life of Moses" which will explore the amazing ways God moved in Moses' life and used him to do great things for the Kingdom. Join us at 9 or 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the Worship Center or worship with us online.

 

 

 

 

Parents, do you need a date night? The Great Date Challenge is an intentional time for parents, and we do the hard work for you! When you drop off your children in our care, you will be given a complete pre-planned date kit. You will have four hours to have quality conversation, create memories and simply have fun together. Don’t miss out! Sign-ups begin October 15 in the Children’s Building lobby.

 

 

 

Collection Day for Operation Christmas Child will be on Sunday, November 12 in both morning services. Empty shoeboxes are available in the Welcome Center lobby now. You can learn more about Operation Christmas Child here.

 

 

 

 

This annual service has proven to be a tremendous ministry and help to all those who have experienced the loss of a friend or loved one during this past year. These losses are especially felt by those who grieve during the upcoming holidays which are predominantly marked by family gatherings. If you would like to participate, please let us know in the Senior Adult Office at dsmith@lexingtonbaptist.org, as we would like to include a slide presentation of each one to be remembered while candles are lit in their memory. Pictures are not necessary if you are not able to provide one, but we want to let this service be a source of strength and encouragement as we come together in unity around the throne of our Lord and Savior in worship.

 

LBC Family, you're invited to join us for our Family Thanksgiving Dinner & Lord's Supper on Wednesday, November 15. We will have two seatings at either 5 or 7 p.m. Regular Wednesday dinner charges apply. Please make reservations for your family and let us know what seating you'll be attending here. This event is family/child-friendly!

 

 

 

If you've been thinking of joining LBC, this is the day to do it! We're having "Let's Join the Church Day" on Sunday, November 19. During services, we'll invite you to come forward as a group during a specific time to indicate your intent to join the church. Then, after church, join us for our casual new members' class, Lunch with the Pastor to learn more about church membership and LBC. Lunch is on us! Register here.

 

 

 

If you are considering church membership or are a new member, we invite you this casual lunch. We'd love to let you get to know us a little bit better and find out more about you and your family. Wee Care is available for children by reservation. Please RSVP for you and your family here. See you Sunday, November 19 at 12 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall!

December

Sunday mornings in December, join us at 9 or 10:30 a.m. in the Worship Center (or online) for our Christmas sermon series called "The Story," which focuses on different aspects of the story of Christmas and the birth of Jesus.

 

 

 

 

The Worship Ministry of LBC is excited to present "The Story: A Christmas Night of Worship" in the Worship Center on Sunday, December 17 at 6 p.m. We hope you'll make plans to attend and praise the Lord with us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.

 

 

 

 

We will be having two candlelight Christmas "Eve" services this year: Saturday, December 23 at 5 p.m. and Sunday, December 24 at 5 p.m. (Church on Sunday morning will be one service only at 9 a.m. with no Sunday School; Wee Care available for children five and under).
