Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Joshua Week 2



On Tuesday night, October 8, 2019, we plunged into the book of Joshua, studying the first chapters. It was a story of spies in enemy territory, a foreign woman with great faith in Israel's God who outwits the enemy kings troops and sends them off on a wild goose chase. It's a story of rooftop negotiations and a through the wall escape. It was all very exciting. Come see for yourself!. ~Rev. Jeff Snyder

Fall Festival Coming Soon

Lansdowne Baptist Church will have a Fall Festival for the children on Saturday, October 27, 2019, at 2:30 p.m. Children may come in costumes (nothing ghoulish please), games will be played, candy will be available, and for curious adults the pastor will provide a history of the day that has become Halloween, which has a roughly 2500 year history, spanning many cultures.

Come and have fun. We will meet on the lawn in front of the education wing if the weather is fair. If the weather tricks us with bitter cold or rain, we'll meet in the Cooper Room in the office wing.

Come and join us in the celebration.

Faith and Power



Sermon for Sunday, October 6, 2019, based on Luke 17:5-10. Both the disciples and we tend to believe we do not have enough faith to get the job done. We believe Jesus calls us to things far mightier than our puny human faith is capable of. Come and watch and discover the truth of the matter. You might be surprised.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Judges: Week 11 & Joshua: Week 1



In this episode, we wrapped up our study of the book of Judges, with the remainder of Samson's long and violent career. Then we moved on to an introduction to the book of Joshua. After Joshua, we will turn to something from the New Testament. ~Rev. Jeff Snyder

Prayer: Sermon for September 22, 2019



Sermon based on 1 Timothy 2:1-7, in which Paul advises Timothy and us who to pray for and why. Everything he has to say is equally challenging for us as the Christian community today. There is a special challenge and invitation here for members and friends of Lansdowne Baptist Church. All are invited to watch, however, as there is plenty here to challenge everyone. Stop by and worship with us on Sunday morning if you find yourself near Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. The invitation and the door are open.

To the Lansdowne Baptist Church family, listen to this sermon and be ready to respond at our Congregational Meeting on Wednesday evening, October 23rd, 2019.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Judges: Week 10



We have moved into a study of Samson in Judges. Samson will be our last judge examined and the last we will draw on for life application. We'll have to decide which book to study next. Hope to see you there. All are welcome. ~Rev. Jeff Snyder

Saving Sinners



Sermon for Sunday, September 15, 2019, based on 1 Timothy 1:12-17. Paul encourages us to be grateful to Jesus for our salvation, humble in giving credit, and honest about ourselves and our dealings. Paul reminds us of his past as Saul and states if he, as an outrageous sinner, can be saved, so can we. Come and watch and see where this takes us. If you're near Lansdowne, PA, on Sunday morning, join us as well.

Potter's Hands



Sermon based on Jeremiah 18:1-10, given on Sunday, September 8, 2019. Here we discover what the prophet Jeremiah learned watching a potter at work with soft clay, forming a pot. These observations and a message from God tells us all much about our relationship with God and our own challenge to change. Come and see.

We Have Awesome Power!

Each and every one of us in each and every moment has been gifted with the power to be a blessing or a curse in the lives of the people we meet today. Use your awesome power wisely!

Mutual Love



This is the sermon for Sunday, September 1, 2019, based on Hebrews 13:1-7, in which Christian congregations are called to have mutual brotherly & sisterly love continue to grow between members. That love is intended to overflow the congregation and extend out into the community, attracting others. Mutual love is expressed through hospitality. An adversary of love and hospitality is arrogance. There is a lot to learn here. Come and watch. Join us Sundays at Lansdowne Baptist Church in Lansdowne, PA. You will be welcomed with hospitality!


I have no idea why the last 5 minutes of the sermon are cut off, but am working to correct this problem.
