For Sunday, April 26
Going on Now:
Pastoral counseling is available at Lexington Baptist Church on Wednesday nights from 6 to 8 p.m. by appointment only. Chris Hix, a ministry care intern from CIU, is available for a variety of needs including marriage, family and personal counseling. For more information or to get in touch with Chris, contact the main church office at 803.359.4146 or email Chris at email@example.com.
Pastor Mike is beginning a new Wednesday night series called “A Sacred Assembly,” which explores five core principles of church and church membership, on March 4 and will continue through April 29. This pastoral study meets in the Chapel at 6:15 p.m. We hope you’ll join us!
Pastor Mike will lead us in new sermon series from April 5 through April 26 called “The Hope of Glory” that will explore the full story of what happened after the cross: the resurrection, Jesus appearing after death, the ascension and the second coming. We are really looking forward to this series that explains why we have the hope of glory in Christ!
This dinner, on Friday, May 1 at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, is to honor LBC senior adults as we express appreciation for your service in the Kingdom of God and to recognize your participation in the ministry of LBC. All senior adults are invited. There is no charge for this dinner; however, reservations must be made by Monday, April 27 to 803.996.8843 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bible is filled with stories of men and women that have overcome tremendous obstacles to follow God’s call on their lives. Beginning May 3 and continuing through June 21, Pastor Mike will lead us in a seven-part series exploring a different overcomer from the Old Testament. Don’t miss out on a single week of this powerful series!
Join us on Sunday night, May 3 at 6 p.m. in the Worship Center for our Community Night of Praise. This event will feature contemporary praise and worship music performed by area praise band leaders (from EastLake Community Church, First Baptist Church of Columbia, Gateway Baptist, Lake Murray Baptist and LBC) along with some of their most talented band members. Join us as we exalt the name of Jesus and praise Him through this special night of worship.
This four-part series will encourage us in “Defeating the Spirit of Offense” that is so common among believers. When someone wounds us, on purpose or not, that is prime territory for Satan to hold us captive to a vicious cycle of anger and bitterness. Marriages, friendships, work relationships and church fellowship are all affected. Join us on Wednesday evenings, from May 6-27, at 6:15 p.m. in the Chapel.
Men, join us for our last monthly men’s Bible study until the fall! We will meet on Friday, May 22 at 7 a.m. in the Reception Hall. Our guest teacher for this study is Foster Christy. Come for Bible study, food, fun and fellowship with other men. You won’t want to miss this!
The Lexington Baptist Church Orchestra will be performing a concert on Sunday, May 24 at 6 p.m. at Virginia Hylton Park in Lexington. This is wonderful event for your whole family-bring a folding chair, some good friends and settle in for an evening of great music!
We will be holding our next Oil Change Ministry opportunity on Saturday, June 6 at the Family Life Center from 9 a.m. to noon. This ministry provides free oil changes and car checks for single mothers and widows. If you’d like to volunteer, please email Kevin Barber at email@example.com.
This year, our annual church picnic and outdoor baptism will be at the river! Join us on Sunday, June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Saluda Shoals Park as we baptize, fellowship and share in a meal together as a church family. This event is free and a wonderful time for your entire family. If you’re ready to make a public profession of faith and be baptized, please contact Robin Inman to register at 803.996.8803 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This summer, LBC is taking three mission trips (June 15-19, June 29-July 3, September 21-25) to New York City to participate in Global Gates Sifting Weeks. We will be focusing on engaging and sharing our faith with Central Asians living in New York City. This is a great way to get your family involved in mission without leaving the country. Contact John Wright at email@example.com or 803.996.8836 for more information.
