Notes from the LBC Safety Team
Notes from the LBC Safety Team -The Greensboro Police Department (GPD) encourages you to make a record of your valuables. Should your valuables ever be stolen or lost, this record will help police investigate the crime and possibly recover your items. This record is also helpful for insurance purposes. GPD recommends you use a free, secure online system called ReportIt to help keep track of valuable --- and invaluable --- personal property. ReportIt allows you to record an unlimited number of serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and receipts for valuables. You can access and update the system any time and only you have access to the record. For more information, contact Wayne McNeil at 288-3332.

Lawndale Gear is Here! The Lawndale logo displays the Journey of the church, accomplished through—Vision, Teamwork and Harvest. Wearing this symbol on our attractive clothing and accessories gives folks in our community the opportunity to ask you about our church as you are out and about in our city. Please note that we are providing this tool for you as close to cost as possible.  All items will have the Lawndale Logo on them when you pick them up at church.

The selection of Lawndale Gear are popular items we have featured before, so you have seen them worn by many of our members. You can look closely at the quality and style as they wear them, if you are not familiar with the items. (We do NOT have samples available.) All of the items shown are available in the color of your choice, as you will see on the charts displayed when you click on the item. Everything will have the LOGO embroidered or printed, as usual. From experience, we have found these items to be very true to size. Order the size you would usually wear.

Lawndale Gear will now be available to order monthly! The ordering schedule will be as follows: Orders placed by the last day of each month will be ready for pick up on the third Sunday of the following month. For example - Orders placed by Jan 31 will be ready for pick up in Guest Central on Feb 21 and orders placed by Feb 28 will be ready on March 20.  Orders not picked up in Guest Central may be picked up in the church office during the week. Questions? Please contact PJ at pjgiaritelli@lawndalebaptist.org or call the church office.
