Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease so that your first visit to Lighthouse Baptist will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and "at home"! Here are a few answers to questions that you may have as well as what you might expect on your first visit.
What can I expect on my first visit?
During our services you will enjoy the inspiring and uplifting music of the choir, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from our Pastor. This service is a little over one hour in length. Also, during the 10:00 hour, there are Bible classes for adults in all stages of life. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, enjoy perhaps some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your life-stage. The best way to get to know people at Lighthouse Baptist Church is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
Where do I take my children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for children of all ages. At every service there are safe, clean, and well-staffed nurseries for children 2 years old and under. For the infants, workers will take your cell phone number so that the nursery attendants can easily contact you if there is a need. For children three years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
When you first arrive at LBC we would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our greeters and ushers are located in the lobby of the main auditorium and will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
How should I dress?
Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Lighthouse!
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No, we don't invite you to Lighthouse Baptist Church for your offering. We only want our service to be a help and a blessing to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there's something we missed on this list, just give us a call at 765.384.7572, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you're new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it's been a long time since you've attended church at all, we hope your first visit at Lighthouse Baptist will be awesome! Our desire is to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you'll feel right at home from the very first moment you set foot in Lighthouse Baptist Church! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
