MINISTRIES

A Place to Participate and Serve

WORSHIP

We’d love to have you join us for a Sunday worship service!
 
We have wonderful worship music that includes both contemporary and traditional styles. Our Praise Team under Music Director Janet Gross leads us in new and favorite praise songs and choruses. We also sing hymns accompanied by our magnificent pipe organ.
 
Scripture holds a central place, with in-depth messages from the Bible that bring you to God and help shape how you think and live.
 

Nursery/Childcare

We provide childcare for infants and toddlers, giving young families a chance to worship during the service and attend Bible Study. We have both a Baby Room and Toddler Room staffed by volunteers who provide a structured play time for our little ones.

 
We have childcare for infants and toddlers, and also dismiss school aged children for a message from our volunteers in our Children’s Ministry.
 

TEENS

Our Youth Group called “EPIC Youth” is led by Pastor Chris Hamilton. He and his wife, Melissa work with a great team of volunteer Adult leaders.

The Youth have many chances to get together in our Church, but the main scheduled times are on Wednesday and Sunday evenings.

Wednesday is the Teen Bible Study, from 7 to 8pm.

Sundays our EPIC Youth Group regularly meets from 6 to 8pm. There are fun activities and learning opportunities for both Senior and Junior High students. The schedule varies depending on other outings and activities being scheduled, contact the Church office and ask for a Youth Calendar.

CHILDREN

We have many opportunities to minister to Children at FBCL.

Kingdom Kids

Wednesday Nights at 7:00pm (September – May)

Every Wednesday children ages 6-6th grade are invited to join in a game, skit, snack and craft. As the kids move through the stations they learn about the great lessons of the Bible in fun and creative ways.

Children’s Church

Sunday Mornings 10:30am

(time is approximate as children are dismissed from the sanctuary before the sermon)

Every Sunday we teach lessons based on the sermon for our kindergarten through 4th graders. 

 

MID-WEEK STUDY

Every Wednesday from 6:30-7:30pm we gather for a mid-week bible study.  
 
Pastor Eric leads the bible study every week with a passion to bring God’s word alive.  We study different people of the bible, books of the bible and have special nights focusing on special topics.
 
Every week we take time to sing some hymns and have a time of prayer before we study God’s word.

MISSIONS

Our church values missions! We believe we are a part of God’s mission that was announced in the person of Jesus Christ, and so we follow God into that mission of sharing the good news and making a positive difference in the world. Nearly a quarter of all our church’s receipts are given to other mission ministries we support.

FBCL supports various ministries and missionaries across the world. We regularly support a number of missionaries through the International Ministries of ABC, as well as several special mission offerings through the year. We support institutions that include seminaries, universities, camps and retirement homes. Causes closer to home include feeding the homeless, chaplaincy programs, and resources for troubled pregnancies.

SENIOR SAINTS

The Senior Saints at FBCL are very active and provide a host of activities for folks in their later years.
 
 Weekly they host opportunities to gather for dinners, special programs, a coloring group, and knitting activities. 
 
Every Sunday after church many of our Saints gather for coffee and donuts for a time of fellowship in Judson Hall.
 
Another highlight of the Senior Saints is the special trips they take to Sight & Sound or different dinner theaters.
 
RETREADS
A shout out to the retired folks who come out every other Tuesday to paint, clean and fix things around the church.

 

 

 

 

MEDIA/TECH

As with many Churches, we have good capabilities for Sound and AV throughout our facility.
 
We have a small team of Sound and AV techs that help produce our worship services each week and throughout the week for special services and activities.  They setup sound, make sure the Mics are turned on/off as needed, and record the services.
 
We also have a team to create and run the presentations to enhance the worship experience through AV.  This includes announcements, lyric slides, scripture, and video.  
 
If Media/Tech is where you feel gifted in any way at all, you can definitely find a place to minister in this area at FBCL.

OUTREACH

We continue to seek out ways to reach out into Lansdale and the surrounding communities to serve those in need and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We believe that Jesus can meet all our needs whether they are physical, emotional and or spiritual. (Phil. 4:19)  
 
Through different ministries, we strive to reach out to help individuals and families. Every couple of months we will host community events to reach into the local community with the love of Christ.  
We are striving to become an Acts 2 church, and we will heed the call to be devoted to serving, caring and building God’s church for His purposes in
our time. 

FOOD CUPBOARD

We do have a small food cupboard we maintain to help people in emergency situations.  This is kept running by donations of food and money (through our fellowship fund and directly) via members and friends of FBCL.
 
If you would like to donate to this Ministry, please contact the church office at 215-855-3457.
 
If you would like to participate in this ministry by helping maintain the inventory and buying items as needed, etc, you should also contact the Church Office at the number above and someone will get in touch with you on how to get started.
 
If you need access to the services of our food cupboard and are in need of food, the best path to follow is to come to the Church and speak with one of our Pastors who can help you gain access to the resources FBCL can provide.
