For Sunday, May 24
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!
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.
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!
LexKids is taking over worship on Sunday, May 31 at both morning services. We will kick off our Summer Treasure Hunt with a great, family-friendly worship experience. Kids are encouraged to attend service with their parents.
Are you ready to go on a hunt for treasure better than gold? It’s God’s Word we’re after this summer on our LexKids Summer Treasure Hunt! Pick up your treasure map today in the church lobbies and find out more here.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 803.996.8836 for more information.

*We are extremely saddened to hear the news released this week by the Duggar family and are praying for all involved. Obviously, our event featuring Jim Bob and Michelle was booked months ago, before any of these admissions were made public. We are now determining the best course of action to take and will come to a decision as soon as we are able.
Finishing up our “Week of Refreshment” will be nationally-known recording artist Charles Billingsley. He will be leading us in a great musical experience on Wednesday, August 5 at 7 p.m. in the Worship Center. Find more details here.
