Seniors Seeking Internet Access

Lansdowne Baptist has been live streaming our worship services and more on Facebook Live and YouTube, increasingly so during this time of pandemic. There are many seniors who cannot take advantage of this service as they do not have access to the Internet. Linked here are two articles that discuss options for seniors to gain access to the Internet at low prices. If you know and love someone who could take advantage of any of these programs, please follow these links and bring this information to their attention. We have several seniors who had not been able to attend church services who have rejoined worship through live streaming. Lansdowne Baptist will continue to offer live streamed worship services moving forward for all who need it.

Here are links to the articles. I pray they will be helpful.

Sunday Worship July 12 2020

Worship service for Sunday, July 12, 2020, in which we examined the lives of two fueding brothers Esau and Jacob from Genesis 25:22-34. We see how God takes an active role in human history, encouraging us to move toward a fuller, richer life walking more closely with God while never removing from us our freedom to choose. It is a complicated story with complicated applications to life in this world today. We sang favorite hymns and shared our joys and concerns. 

If you with to support our ministries through an offering we will gladly accept it and put it to good use. Please make your check out to Lansdowne Baptist Church and send it by mail to Lansdowne Baptist Church, 17 E. LaCrosse Avenue, Lansdowne, PA 19050. 

All are welcome and invited to join our Sunday services. This week we had to record the entire service as our live streaming computer wore out. Hopefully it will be replaced in time for next Sunday's service.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Malachi Week 2





We nearly finished the last of our three minor prophets tonight, the
prophet Malachi. He lived when the Temple in Jerusalem was rebuilt.
During the rebuilding phase, all sorts of ideas developed about how
wonderful life would be once the Temple was back in operation and how
much humans would change as well. It didn't happen that way and Malachi
helps his people deal with that, change their expectations, and calls
them to work for the change they want. Looks like we'll have one more
week and then we'll take a summer vacation and return in the fall. Join
us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Haggai Week 2


We were well on our way to finishing with the minor prophet Haggai when
this live stream began. We picked up with Chapter 2, verses 10-19 of
this two chapter book. From there we moved on to Malachi and how that prophet dealt with people's disappointment when the rebuilding of the Temple does not live up to expectations. Join us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Haggai Week 1

Finishing Micah last week, we are now moving on to the minor prophet Haggai, writing at the time the Temple is being rebuilt. Haggai reflects on what this means and what the people of Israel hope for the future. It's similar to our hopes for the future as we are coming through a time of potentially great change given both the pandemic and the civil rights issues joined today. Join us. Or enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Micah Week 4


We completed the prophet's book, Micah, Tuesday night, June 9, 2020. We picked up where we left off last week with the beginning of Chapter 5. Chapter 6 has a powerful message for us all. While I'm not making any guarantees, we could finish the book of Micah this week. Join us. Or
enjoy watching this later. All are welcome.
