The classes will be taught by the pastor. Each class will be an hour long. These classes will be offered in the month of November. Classes will cover the basics of the Baptist faith and provide both history and current structure of Lansdowne Baptist Church operations.

We have taken our 4th of July flyer and used it as a template for a new flyer for the Lansdowne Baptist Church. This we have adjusted and updated to put our best foot forward. Now we are putting on our thinking caps to see just how many ways we can make use of it. So far, we have copies for visitors to the church and it has appeared at the National Night Out. Now, it is here for you to review. Who knows what will happen next???
Of course, if you really want to get to know us, drop by any Sunday and meet us personally. I believe you will be glad you did!

|During the march, many groups, many balloons|
|The DAR prepares in the background|
|March prep on the side streets|
I was representing Lansdowne Baptist in an informal way this year, walking along the parade route, meeting wonderful people involved in the parade and watching, handing out all the flyers I had about our church, which people readily accepted, and receiving multiple flags from a young member of the boy's swim team, which was handing out American flags to everyone who they could reach in the crowd. I gave each of mine to some person who had been missed, knowing my new friend would soon give me another.
|Friends and Presbyterians both represented|
|Being Philadelphia, we had string bands!|
|Parading in style!|
|String band in Hawaiian shirts!|
|Our 4th of July flyer about LBC|
|Come join our family. ALL are welcome here!|

A series of four new membership classes will be offered to all who have become members of Lansdowne Baptist Church within the last year to year and a half by the pastor. Each class will be an hour long. These classes will be offered in the month of May. Sign-up sheets will be provided for all who are interested in attending. A second sign-up sheet will be provided for sponsors. Sponsors are long-term members of the congregation who would like to partner with new members, take the classes with them, offer to spend a little time outside class getting to know the new members and answering any questions that may have arisen in class. On the last Sunday in May, sponsors will be asked to introduce their member to the congregation as a whole. Classes will cover the basics of the Baptist faith and provide some history of Lansdowne Baptist Church. Class time is tentatively set for the Sunday school hour, unless participants would prefer another meeting time.
