Welcome, Guests

We are so glad you are with us today. If you are a fellow believer, our earnest hope is that you will be spiritually enriched and edified by your experience here today. And if you are not yet a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is that today some influence here may draw you toward Christ.

Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

The Curse of Familiarity

Matthew 13:47-58

Word From the Pastor

When it comes to the gospel, familiarity is a double-edged sword. It can be a blessing for those who love it and a curse for those with contempt for it.

All-Church Announcements

Family Service Starting

Sunday Nights at 5 pm, we are offering a family service where the whole family can worship together.

  • This service is not a third service but is a family-friendly service with worship geared for the whole family, adults and children. A concise message that relates back to the morning sermon will be given by one of the staff pastors.
  • If you haven’t felt comfortable attending the morning service because of childcare, now there is a service for you.

Registration will be required for this family service. If you have questions, please contact Asa Hart.

Andrew Peterson’s Behold the Lamb of God

Sunday, December 6th we will be participating in the livestream of Andrew Peterson’s Behold the Lamb of God at 5:00 PM (instead of the Family Service). Behold the Lamb of God is a poignant representation of the gospel story the project itself portrays – many people with different gifts and talents coming together to tell the true story of Jesus. The tour has become a tradition for many families, and we are excited to bring this livestream event to Lake Bible Church.

We will be streaming it in three different locations in the church. Be sure to reserve your spot by registering for this special event.

Questions, please contact John Dotson or Asa Hart

Bless A Child

Let a child know they are loved this Christmas by supporting Angel Tree. Visit Lake’s Angel Tree portal and enter code 8RY1K to find a child to bless.

A small donation this year will mean so much to children struggling with a parent in prison and a world restricted by a pandemic. This is a ministry that can help reach children and parents with the love of Jesus Christ.

If you would like more information or need assistance, contact Sandra Arrell.
