What does it mean to share life?
Sharing Life is part of our 3-part vision to Serve Christ, Share Life, and Support Others. We want everyone who comes through our doors to encounter gospel community and get plugged in with some way. We find small groups to be the most effective way of doing that. It is easy to hide in a crowd, but in a smaller group, you can connect with people in a different way and forge relationships that go beyond the church walls. In doing so, we can grow together and encourage each other in our walk with Christ.
There are 3 types of small groups: study groups where we dig into the Bible and discover timeless truths, service groups where we serve our church in a variety of ways, and social groups where we hang out and enjoy fellowship together. Check out the groups below and see if there's a group you can be a part of so you can start sharing life with others.
"Teach a youth about the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it."—Prov 22:6. Here at LHBC, we value our future generations and preparing them for life and godliness. That is why we have a children's ministry packed with biblical truths, scripture memorization, and lots and LOTS of fun. Whether it's Sunday morning, or Wednesday evening, we make a point to teach and train our kids what it means to be a child of God. To learn more, check out our page below.
Boldly proclaiming your faith is difficult at any age, let alone your teen years. At LHBC we look to help students boldly proclaim the gospel through their own relationship with Jesus Christ. Through Bible studies, monthly activities, hanging out, and yes summer camp students will find and build on their relationship with Jesus. To get involved in our bold youth ministry, check out our page below.

From the choir, to the praise team, to the tech team, the worship ministry aims to use one's talents, gifts and abilities for the glory of God alone and provide an environment that encourages others to engage in true, meaningful, corporate worship. We are always looking for more volunteers to get involved. If you want to learn more about the worship ministry, check out our ministry page by clicking the button below.
One effective way we've found that we can serve our community is by offering ESL. We also offer beginner, intermediate and advanced classes to our community, and we have hundreds show up from all over the world to learn English. If you would like to help teach ESL or learn more about ESL, click below.
Baptist Bistro Service Group
These volunteer cooks and servers prepare a full meal every Wednesday for the ESL students, so they can practice their conversational English over a meal as they build their language skills and build relationships. They also are able to teach these students a bit about the culture and food in the US. The ESL students eat for free and other church members eat for $5 which helps pay for the ESL student's meal. Contact Robin Smalley if you want to serve with us or if you have any questions.
Sidewalk/Lawncare Saints Service Group
This group of volunteers serve the church by cleaning the sidewalks and mowing the grass at the church as a way to serve the church as well as keep costs down. This allows the church to use it's funds more for community events and missions. If you are interested in serving or have questions, contact the office.
Setup / Tear Down Crew
These volunteers prepare our sanctuary after every Sunday morning worship service and Wednesday night ESL class, so that it is prepared for the next event. They take down and set up chairs, table, table cloths- whatever the need. If you are interested in serving in this area or you just have questions, contact the office.
