Annual Special Events

Youth Sunday

Youth Sunday is one of our favorite services of the year. The youth lead the worship service, so the old way of doing things is gone and the new way has begun. The music is new and there is a different energy in the room. You will certainly receive a blessing by coming to watch how the LGBC Youth worship our Lord! The next student-led worship service will be on September 12, 2021. Please mark your calendar!

Easter Cantata

Each year on Good Friday, the Lynn Garden Baptist Church Worship Choir performs an Easter Cantata. It is a powerful service of praising our Lord in song!
 
The choir is always looking for new members and encourages everyone to come and try it out. Choir rehearsal is on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Not only is the choir looking for singers, but also people with acting and skilled speaking abilities. Please take the time to consider joining the choir!
 

Easter Sunrise Service

We have an Easter Sunrise Service at 7:00 am on Easter Sunday. We celebrate that the Lord has risen, defeated death and will bring salvation and eternal life to everyone who puts their faith in Him.
 
Weather permitting, the service is held outside under the covered walk way to the church. Please mark your calendar and invite a friend to attend this event.
 

Vacation Bible School

Our VBS for 2021 was held on July 11 – 15 and was a huge success. Many thanks to all of the parents for letting your children attend  our VBS and to our many volunteers. It takes a whole village to reach the children … everyone is needed and wanted to participate in this exciting ministry.
 
 
We are looking forward to VBS in 2022 and you do not want to miss it as we will share the Good News of Jesus with all ages. We think that VBS should be fun, yet grounded in reality. Everything that is taught will be Bible-based and biblically accurate. Bible characters will not be presented as cartoons or inanimate objects. Our goal is for children to understand the reality of the Bible through an entertaining, theme-oriented learning approach. And, we’ll strive to make the learning and activity features appropriate for the age group they are designed to reach. There will also be a class for adult learners.
 

Mission Dignity Emphasis

On one Sunday each year, we collect an offering  for this amazing ministry. Mission Dignity honors retirement-age Southern Baptist ministers, workers and widows struggling to meet basic needs through advocacy and financial assistance.  Please use a special offering envelope and designate it “Mission Dignity” if you would like to show your support.
 

Homecoming

Homecoming at LGBC was originally scheduled for Sunday, September 27, 2020, but was cancelled due to COVID-19. We will reschedule a Homecoming pot luck at a later date. We will be celebrating our church’s 80th anniversary and we encourage those who have moved away to return for a reunion.
 

Trunk n’ Treat

Many thanks to everyone that attended our Drive-Thru Trunk n’ Treat event on Saturday, October 31, 2020. Trunk n’ Treat is our annual community outreach event at Halloween where we typically park cars in the church parking lot and give out candy from the trunks. Due to the social distancing guidelines, we had a drive-thru event in 2020. Our guests took a spin around the LGBC parking lot and stopped at a tent where each child received a goody bag with limited- to no-contact. The items in each goody bag were only touched by a person that was wearing a mask and gloves. Approximately 850 goody bags were given out.
 
 

Shoebox Meal and Packing Party

Each year, we pack shoeboxes that are delivered to Operation Christmas Child. Due to COVID-19, things were done a little differently in 2020. Families filled shoeboxes and returned them to the church. Seventy shoeboxes were packed and delivered  in 2020. Normally, there is a meal before the packing party and the proceeds from the meal are used to help pay the shipping costs.
 
 

Christmas Cantata

Each year, the Lynn Garden Baptist Church Choir presents the Christmas Cantata.The music celebrates the true meaning of Christmas and the decorations are beautiful. Please join us for a night of celebration through music and bring your friends and family.
 
 

Christmas Candlelight Service

Our Candlelight service is always held on Christmas night at 8:00 pm. After all the planning and festivities of Christmas, the Candlelight Service is an excellent opportunity to slow down and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. The service consists of a sermon, carols, communion and lighting of each person’s candle. Don’t let Christmas day pass without celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
