Upcoming Events / Announcements

Operation Christmas Child
Some 11 million gift-filled shoeboxes will be delivered to needy children around the world by
Samaritan's Purse. Many children, students, and adult classes and groups packed a great number of boxes. Thank you to all! How exciting in early November to see children's classes enthusiastically packing these boxes. We will have a wonderful team to go to Charlotte to process boxes the first few days of December. Some will also go to Boone. Thank you Nelda Lockamy, Debbie Bowles & Yvonne Straughn for your assistance with Operation Christmas Child in various ways.
Parents, Teach the Coming of Jesus Christ this December!
On December 13th all our Preschool children, babies through Kindergarten, will be given a copy of "Come to Bethlehem and See!" Parents, this little book is just one tool you can use to focus on teaching your preschoolers the Biblical facts of Christmas. Set up the nativity set in your home in a prominent place as a family event and allow everyone to participate. Read as a family the Biblical account of Jesus' birth.

Weekday Preschool Scholarship Fund

Our Children's Learning Center has a wonderful ministry to preschoolers.  Little ones receive a solid developmental foundation built on Christian principles.  We have established a scholarship fund in memory of Marion and Doris Ellis (charter members of Lawndale Baptist Church).  The fund will assist parents with monthly fees.  Any amount you wish to give will honor this wonderful couple and help a preschool child get off to a great start in life.  Checks can be made to "Lawndale Baptist Church" and designate it for "Weekday Scholarship Fund".

For other current activities, please check the Children's section of the Lawndale Leader.
