Update and Advice with Pastor Jeff



An update on how we'll handle Sunday's service in the age of coronavirus and how we handle uncertain times as Christ's followers.

Annual Community Dinner Postponed

For everyone's safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual free community dinner has been postponed until further notice. We hate to do it, but we love our community and want you all to stay safe. Once the pandemic has passed, we'll brush ourselves off, thank God we're here, and prepare to celebrate together, breaking bread in joy. See you then.

Annual Dinner with Our Community

The Lansdowne Baptist Church's annual dinner, free for all who come, will soon be upon us. It occurs on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Please call the church office and let us know who you are and how many people you will be bringing with you. We look forward to breaking bread with you soon. 

The safety of everyone in our community and church are of utmost importance to us; we love our neighbors. If the situation with the COVID-19* virus worsens in Lansdowne, we will reconsider this meal. If we have to suspend the dinner, we will be sure to let everyone know. We will keep actively monitoring the situation and following offical recommendations for actions, should the need arise. Stay safe, everyone.
