Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

 

 

What are the worship experiences like?

Our worship service experience is comprised of two primary elements: powerful worship and a life-changing message. Worship at LGBC is led by our worship leader along with the choir and instrumentalists. Our worship combines traditional and contemporary styles of music in order to appeal to different generations. The pastor focuses on teaching the Bible in a way that is easy to understand and applicable to one’s life. The messages are grounded in truth from God’s Word. Our worship services last about one hour. You can visit our YouTube Channel to watch one of our recent services.

 

What should I wear when I come to the Garden?

You will find a wide variety of dress at the Morning Worship Service. Some are comfortable in suits and dresses; others are comfortable in more casual wear. You will not be singled out no matter what you choose to wear. Attire on Wednesday nights and at other church functions is usually more relaxed.

 

What should I bring when I come?

Most importantly, we want you to bring yourself and your family and friends! We love having guests to worship with us. It may also be beneficial to bring a Bible if you have one available. We have some available in the pew racks. You should be aware that an offering is collected as part of our Sunday worship services. We do encourage our members to give, since they have made a commitment to being a part of our church family. If you are a guest, please do not feel any obligation to give. All giving goes towards God’s work and it is voluntary.

 

Is there handicap access to the building?

For someone who has trouble climbing stairs or is in a wheelchair, please use our entrance that has the ramp. That entrance is located between the sanctuary and education buildings. Special handicapped parking is set aside for easy access to our ramp that leads by our church offices.

 

Is childcare available?

Yes!  We have childcare workers watching our babies during the 9:45 am Sunday School time, as well as the 11:00 am and 6:00 pm worship hours. Our nursery is located on the first floor of our Education Building, which is in the back of the property. Any child that is 4 years and older is invited to join us for worship in the sanctuary building with the rest of the congregation. Children who are between the ages of 4 and 3rd grade are invited to be a part of Noah’s Park, which is our children’s worship hour. These kids will gather at the altar during the service before departing to Noah’s Park. Nursery is also available during our Wednesday evening activities which begin at 6:00 pm

How do I become a member of Lynn Garden Baptist Church?

We believe that everyone should become a part of a church family where they can serve and grow with other believers. If you are considering becoming a part of our church family, then we are truly honored. We would love for you to let us know of your desire to join so that we can meet with you and tell you more about our church as well as answer any questions you might have for us. As Baptists, we believe that affiliating with our church is a public decision. That is why we always extend an invitation to those who are interested in becoming a part of our congregation during our 11:00 am and 6:00 pm worship services each week. If God is leading you to be a part of our church, then we encourage you to come forward as we sing the hymn of invitation and become a member of the Lynn Garden family in one of the following ways:

1. If you have never publicly accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and been baptized by immersion, you would join on profession of faith and baptism. Your church membership would become official following your baptism, which would be scheduled between you and the pastor for a date soon after you come.

2. If you have already been baptized by immersion and you are coming from another church, you would join by transfer of letter. Our church clerk would contact your former church and request that you be removed from their roll and added to ours as a member.

3. If you have already been baptized by immersion but have no other church home, you would join by statement. We would accept you as a member on your affirmation of your previous baptism and your desire to unite with us in fellowship.
