Pastor's Welcome

We're so glad you found us! Here on the FBCL website you can learn about our church, meet some of our people, and even listen to a sermon. Since the real value of a church is its people, we hope you will take this as an invitation to meet us personally.

We'd love to have you join us for a Sunday worship service! We sing our songs and hymns joyfully whether with our magnificent pipe organ or with our Praise Team under Music Director Janet Gross. Since God's Word holds a central place, we share Scripture and listen to God speak to us through its reading. We preach the Bible accordingly, with in-depth messages that bring you to God and help shape how you think and live.

Our loving and well-qualified childcare volunteers invest themselves so that even our youngest children are shown Jesus' love during our morning worship. Our children's ministry also holds special services during morning worship for grades K-3 that are kid-friendly and engaging.

Prior to Sunday worship, children and adults all gather for Sunday School when we learn more about the Bible, sharing with each other the Gospel story, and learning from each other about life in Christ.

After worship be sure to get your donut and coffee and meet solme old or new friends. We also offer Bible Study on Wednesday nights at 7pm.

Check out our other ministires throughout the week. Our Youth Pastor, Chris Hamilton, keeps our junior and senior high youth busy with fun activities and relevant learning about the Christian life.  We run programming for children, youth and music ministries, as well as groups like Mothers of Preschoolers, various Bible studies and interest groups for men and women, an active seniors' ministry (I think they have as much fun as the youth group!), and much more.

God's mission to reach our world with Jesus Christ's good news inspires us to work locally and globally. We partner with mission organizations, educational institutions and social service agencies as a leader in our denomination, and our generous church gives almost a quarter of our receipts to causes outside of our own ministries. Members from FBCL can be found volunteering throught the community, traveling our country or the world to bring diaster relief, build up ministries, teach or do whatever God's Spirit is calling them to do. We're glad to be part of God's mission, and hope that maybe you'd like to be a part of something like that, too.

So explore the pages of our website and get to know us a bit. Stop by on Sunday, or we can get together here or elsewhere for coffee or lunch another day of the week, my treat. Visit our Facebook page or join our Facebook group. Call or email anyone from our staff, we'd be happy to share information and offer encouragement however we can.

May God bless you,

Pastor James M. Leonard, Interim Pastor
