Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Micah Week 3







This week we picked up with Chapter 2. There will be lots of material about human downfall and what we must do to walk with God instead of stumbling along in the dark being miserable. We ended with Chapter 4. It was a wild ride. You are all invited.

COVID-19 Information Resources for Pastors and Congregations

American Baptist Churches USA has collected some valuable resources for use by ministers and their congregations in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Immersing ourselves in fact is one way to avoid fear, and certainly a way to avoid misinformation, allowing us to follow the instruction in Ephesians 5:5: Let no one deceive you with empty words. See: https://www.abc-usa.org/coronavirus/

May we all stand on our faith in God. May God be our rock in times of trouble, our firm foundation in the storm.

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Joshua Week 6 & Mark Week 1



On Tuesday night, November 12, 2019, we wrapped up our study of Joshua with the Promised Land belonging to Israel and sanctuary cities established. Then we moved on to a study of the Gospel According to Mark, which was the first of the four gospels written. We had an introduction that night, and we'll plunge into Mark in detail in the next session. It was an interesting evening. Join us! And, should you be near Lansdowne Baptist in Lansdowne, PA, some fine Sunday morning, drop in and join us for worship. We'll be glad to have you. ~Rev. Jeff Snyder

Beyond Loaves and Fishes: Joshua Week 5



Tuesday night, November 5, 2019, after we voted, we saw what happens when greed overrides God's rules as the people move toward Ai. We explored what this and much else means for us. Tonight's live stream marked a personal milestone. Something will never be the same again. Also, there's a gaff at the very end if you stick around. ~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.

Be Merciful Today

The Beatitudes in Matthew 5 read: 


When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; 
and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 
2Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
3“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the 
kingdom of heaven.4“Blessed are those who mourn, 
for they will be comforted. 5“Blessed are the meek, 
for they will inherit the earth. 6“Blessed are those 
who hunger and thirst for righteousness, 
for they will be filled. 7“Blessed are the merciful, 
for they will receive mercy. 8“Blessed are the 
pure in heart, for they will see God. 9“Blessed 
are the peacemakers, for they will be called 
children of God. 10“Blessed are those who are 
persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is 
the kingdom of heaven. 11“Blessed are you when 
people revile you and persecute you and utter all 
kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 
12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great 
in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted 
the prophets who were before you.

Be merciful with others and with yourselves today. 
Be peacemakers and be meek, walking humbly with 
God and with each other. Life in this world can be 
very hard. Human life can be frighteningly fragile. 
We are all struggling behind the confident & calm 
masks we wear. So often when asked how we're 
doing, the cheery "Fine" we deliver is a lie. So be 
helpful to each other in small ways. Be alert for 
the moment when you can deliver a kind word, 
hold a door for someone, calm a troubled soul 
with an act of grace. God does this for us and 
asks us to do this for others. I'll be right out there 
with you, doing just the same. In helping others, 
we will discover we also help ourselves. 
See you in the world.

Walking Prayer: July 7 After Church

 Providing the weather cooperates, anyone interested in learning/practicing the spiritual discipline of the walking prayer is invited to join us at the John Heinz Wildlife Refuge. We will gather in the Lansdowne Baptist parking lot at 12:30 p.m. and then head on over to the refuge. There is no admission or parking fee involved at the wildlife refuge, so all you need is an hour of time and an open mind.


The walking prayer is an opportunity to open oneself to God through God's creation, using every sense to observe the natural world and allow God to speak to us through God's handiwork. A word of warning: prayer done well can be a transformative experience. Walk with us and with God on Sunday afternoon, and you may leave a changed person. 

Come and see. 

See You at the 2019 4th of July Parade


Lansdowne Baptist Church will be on the march again this year. We will be participating in the Lansdowne, PA , 4th of July parade, beginning at 9 a.m. Members and friends who want to march with us will meet in the church parking lot at 8 a.m. Please bring your Lansdowne Baptist t-shirts if you have them! 

Have a blessed 4th of July everyone! See you soon. 

For more details about the parade, see: http://unionaa.org/fourth-of-july-events/

Enjoy the Weekend: Join Us Sunday

This Sunday, we'll be exploring Jesus' answer to his disciples' question concerning how to pray. Jesus tells them, and there's more to the answer than first meets the eye. Prayer done properly will change us in surprising ways. Come see how. 

You are invited. All are welcome!

Enjoy the weekend!
