Tired of humming the same hymns over and over because you only know a handful of them?

Embarrassed by starting the next verse before the rest of the congregation because you can't
remember the tune?

A Message from our Pastor...
I would like to personally invite you to become
a part of our church family here at the
Lighthouse.  As Pastor of the Lighthouse Baptist
Church, I believe a church should be a place of
worship and a place where friendships are
established and people are helped.

I try to make the atmosphere of our church one
where people want to come, rather than feeling
as if they have to come.  Our church is not a
place where a bunch of stereotypical Christians
meet to let everyone know how spiritual they
are or to show off their new outfits.  We here at
the Lighthouse are just regular people who love
the Lord and want to be a blessing to others.  
We have many ministries for all ages that can
be a help to the whole family.  If you are tired
of the same old "religious” church and would
like to be a part of a church that is real with
real Christians to build good friendships, it
would be an honor to have you as my guest.

If You Missed the Past Couple of Weeks at Lighthouse....

You missed a great series on music taught by Pastor Bannister. We explored the
different schools of though amongst Christians regarding good and bad music
and compared them to what God says in his word!

You also missed  the surest sign of spring: Our migration to Nickeydoodles for ice
cream and other comfort foods. We haven't quite figured out how to ask the Lord
to nourish our bodies with chili cheese fries and hot fudge sundaes, but we keep
relying on His mercy.

Not only that, but you also missed a terrific Sunday School series on explaining
our faith to others so that we are ready with an answer from God's word, from
God's creation and even from historical and scientific resources that leave us
without excuse!

Don't miss out! We'll leave the light on for you!
Hope to see you at Revival this week!
