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!
 
 

“Souper” Bowl Sunday

Each year we collect cans of soup on the day of the Super Bowl for the Care House as a community outreach effort to help tackle hunger in Lynn Garden.  On February 13, 425 cans of soup were collected  and delivered to the Care House.
 

Baptist Men’s Day

Churches use Baptist Men’s Day to remind their entire congregation of the importance of Baptist Men’s ministry within the church, community, and the world. During the morning worship service, all men are invited and encouraged to sing in the choir.
 

Baptist Women’s Day

Churches use Baptist Women’s Day to remind their entire congregation of the importance of Baptist Women’s ministry within the church, community, and the world. During the morning worship service, all women are invited and encouraged to sing in the choir.
 

Easter Egg Hunt

On April 16, 2022, the LGBC Youth sponsored our first annual Easter Egg Hunt and it was a huge success. There were tents set up to provide information about the children and youth activities at LGBC and a tent to preregister for Vacation Bible School on June 12-16. There were inflatables, games and, of course, lots of eggs to be found. Some photos from the day can be seen by clicking the button below:
 
 

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 2022 was held on June 12 – 16.
 
 
 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 2023 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

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. Or, you can use our online giving option and write “Mission Dignity” in the comments box on the form.
 

Homecoming

On September 25, 2022, we celebrated our church’s 82nd anniversary.  Each year at Homecoming, we encourage those who have moved away to return for a reunion. A luncheon usually follows the morning worship service and we ask each family is asked to bring enough food for sharing.
 

Trunk n’ Treat

Trunk n’ Treat at Lynn Garden Baptist Church is scheduled for Saturday, October 29, 2022 from 4 – 6 pm. 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. We hope to return to giving out candy from the trunks this year depending on the social distancing guidelines at the time.
 
Due to the social distancing guidelines, we had a drive-thru event in 2020 and 2021. 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. Approximately 850 goody bags were given out each year.
 
 

Shoebox Meal and Packing Party

Last year, because of the situation in our world, we asked each family to put together at least one shoebox for one of our children around the world. On Sunday, November 14, 2021, our church prayed over 80 shoeboxes that were taken to Good Samaritan ministries to be delivered to needy children all over the world.
 
We will be collecting items for our Shoebox Ministry again in 2022. The boxes and labels will be available on Sunday, October 2. We typically have a Shoebox Meal and all donations from the meal are used to help pay the postage for the shoeboxes. The meal is scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2022 at 5:30 pm.
 
The shoebox will more than likely be the only gift the recipient will get the entire year. Also, before a child receives a box, a booklet, containing the gospel in their language, will be placed in the shoebox by Good Samaritan ministries. What a great opportunity we have to be a part of sharing the love of Christ all over the world! A list of items that could go in your shoebox gift can be displayed by clicking the button below.
 

 

 
 

Christmas Cantata

On December 18, 2022, the Lynn Garden Baptist Church Choir will present 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.
