  1. STAFF UPDATE: We are sad to announce that Pastor Levi is stepping down as Youth Minister of LCBC effective January 14, 2018.  We thank him for how he has cared for and ministered to our youth and has challenged them in their Christian walk.  We know that God will bless and provide for the Ferguson family as they seek God’s will for the future.  Please keep Pastor Levi and his family, our youth, and our church in your prayers during this time of transition.  Please contact the Pastors or Deacons with questions.
  2. BAPTISMAL SERVICE has been scheduled for Easter Sunday, April 1st. If you are interested in being baptized or transferring your membership, please pick up a membership application form on the brochure wall next to the library or in the church office.  Your completed membership form is due January 21st.  Testimonies will be given at our February Church Members Meeting.  If you have any questions, please contact Sandra at sandra@lagunabaptist.org.

This study shows how to remain strong in character and true to God even when the society is collapsing; and to trust in God’s sovereignty and loving care.
