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 on the day of the Super Bowl, we collect cans of soup that are delivered to the Care House. On February 7, 2021, 438 cans of soup were collected.
 

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

Homecoming

We celebrated Homecoming at LGBC on Sunday, September 26, 2021. Pastor Emeritus Carl Strickler was the speaker. In 2022, we will be celebrating our church’s 82nd 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 30, 2021. 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 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

This 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 will be delivered to needy children all over the world.
 
We will be collecting items for our Shoebox Ministry again in 2022. We typically have a Shoebox Meal that is followed by a Packing Party. The meal is at 5:30 pm and all donations from the meal are used to help pay the postage for the shoeboxes. After the meal, the shoebox packing begins and is always a blessing for those that attend.
 
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

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.
 
Join us on December 19 at 6:00 pm as we celebrate Christmas with a musical celebration featuring the members of Lynn Garden Baptist Church. After celebrating Christmas upstairs, we will move downstairs for our 2021 Christmas Party. Bring your favorite appetizer for sharing. We may even have a special guest.
 
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.
