Shoebox Ministry

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. We typically have a Shoebox Meal that is followed by a Packing Party. The meal and packing party is scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2022. 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.

Care House

The Care House is located in Lynn Garden at the corner of Lynn Garden Drive and Virginia Street. We are partnering with them to collect food for the neighborhood food bank.
 
The current needs are toiletries, food items or monetary donations. They can purchase the food at a cheaper cost. Peanut butter is always needed.  Other food items that are needed include canned meat, mac and cheese, spaghetti noodles and sauce. Please place items in the collection area behind the choir loft.
 
Each year, we collect cans of soup during the month of January through the Sunday of the Super Bowl. The soup is delivered to the Care House as a community outreach effort to help tackle hunger in Lynn Garden. On February 13, 2022, 425 cans of soup were collected and delivered to the Care House.
 

Many thanks to everyone that helps feed the hungry in our community.

Homebound Ministry

This is a team of men and women who are passionate about serving the homebound members of Lynn Garden Baptist Church and are ensuring that though they may not be with us in person, they are not forgotten.  If you share a similar passion, this team would welcome you in joining with them as they care for those who can no longer be physically with us.  Contact the church office to learn more about this ministry.
