Worship With Us Today, January 13, 2019

Our first snow of 2019 is on the ground. But, thanks to our intrepid congregants, the sidewalk is clear. The main roads are wet, but clear. East LaCrosse Avenue outside the church has a little snow on it but is passable if you are careful. Unfortunately the small parking lot did not get plowed, but there is plenty of street parking, and if you are adventurous, the parking lot is passable.

Look forward to worshiping with you this morning in our warm, cozy sanctuary. Sherry and I are here along with a couple others. See you soon.

If you don't handle snow well, please do stay home and safe today, however. Have a blessed day everyone.

Wonderful Christmas Celebrations in 2018

Christmas was a wonderfully festive season at Lansdowne Baptist Church. Fourteen volunteers got together to decorate the church.

Christmas Eve Service 2018

On Christmas Eve this year, we at LBC once again have a special treat for everyone who wishes to celebrate Jesus' birth. At 7 p.m. on Monday, December 24, 2018, we will offer a family-friendly variation on a service of lessons and carols. We will be singing, reading much-loved scripture passages and responses to those scriptures, hearing a brief meditation from the pastor, and closing with a beautiful, candlelit singing ofSilent Night. During this simple service, all who attend will be offered the opportunity to slow down, pause, and remember why we celebrate Christmas. It will be a time of worshipful release from the tension, the expectations, and the anxieties that so often accompany this busy Christmas season. Together we will experience the joy of Jesus' birth once again. All are invited to join us for the evening's joyous worship. 

Merry Christmas to you all! 

Christmas Candlelight Service 2018

On Sunday, December 23rd, 2018, at 7:00 in the evening, you are invited to Lansdowne Baptist Church's annual Christmas Candlelight Service.  This inspiring service includes a service of lessons and carols. The lessons span both the Old and New Testaments. Follow the story of God's love for humanity, a love so strong that nothing we could do would destroy it, from the very beginning through the joyous birth of Jesus, the Messiah, who would show us the way home to God and declare in word and deed how much we are all beloved children of God. This is a wonderful assurance in challenging times. Following the lessons and carols is a truly unique message during which the light of Christ is shared throughout the church sanctuary, taking a single point of light at the pulpit out throughout the gathered people, sharing Jesus' love and message until the sanctuary, once dark, is fully illuminated by candles. By that warm glow, together we sing Silent Night to end a beautiful, inspiring, and memorable evening sure to give you the real Christmas spirit. Come and join in this profound moment of worship and peace. Come and share our joy. All are invited.
