We look forward to seeing you and worshiping together again on Sunday, January 31st, in both Sunday School (9:45 a.m.) and church (11:00 a.m.). 

Also, as a reminder, we are asking all members to attend the annual business meeting to be held next Sunday, January 31st at 12:15 p.m., after worship (see: http://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2016/01/annual-meeting-2016.html for details).

Ministers, Churches: Google Alerts Keep You In the Loop

If you are looking for a quick way to keep up on particular topics, or to see how (or if) your own church is being discussed out there in the wide world of electronic media, you can set up a Google Alert (or a series of Google Alerts) for yourself. All you need to do is go to: www.google.com/alerts and fill in the appropriate subjects, or your church's name, city, and state, along with the email address where you want to see the alerts. 

Then you let the Google automated search engine handle the rest. You'll receive alerts on the topics you have asked for at intervals of your choosing. The default setting is to receive alerts on you topic once a day. You can set up a number of Google alerts to keep track of a variety of timely topics that may be of use to you and your church community.

New Pastor Installed

On Sunday, May 4, at 3:00 PM, the Lansdowne Baptist Church Search Committee conducted its final piece of business. In a beautiful and moving service, they installed the Rev. Jeff Snyder as the new pastor of the church. It was a joyous occasion ushering in a exciting new stage of the church's journey. Together pastor and congregation look forward to following where God will lead them.

The congregation was pleased to welcome the Reverend Doctor James E. McJunkin, Jr., executive director of the Philadelphia Baptist Association, who provided insight to the congregation and the new pastor during his charge to the pastor.

The pastor thanks Reverend Dr. George Hawthorne, who conducted the words of installation. This was quite meaningful for Rev. Snyder, as George Hawthorne is both a mentor and personal friend.

Afterwards there was plenty of time for fellowship and laughter at the reception, which is a very good way to start to the new pastor's way of thinking.

We are all looking forward to the joys and challenges of following God together in the sojourn ahead. Come and join us on Sunday morning and be a part of our journey. You are most welcome. We would all like to meet you. May God bless you on your journey!

This joyful service will take place on Sunday, May 4, at 3 PM. This is the culmination of a successful search and interim ministry period. We have invited community leaders to celebrate with us, leaders we hope to work with in partnership in the future, along with local ministers and the head of the Philadelphia Baptist Association. We look forward to sharing our joy and journeying together where God will have us go.
