Welcome to our site. As pastor of the Garth Road Baptist Church, I want to thank you for your interest in what is happening at the church. God has truly blessed and we are excited at what He is doing in our congregation!
We finally received occupancy on our buildings and are now in the process of getting down to business. We celebrated with a Dedication Service on Sunday, February 14th with the Henson Family singing. I preached the morning service and then we had dinner on the grounds. We had an official Dedication Service at 2 p.m. with a remembrance of the churches history and several good friends leading in prayer. The evening service the Henson Family sang again and Bro. Roger Henson preached a great message.
As we look back over the past 3 years, we can see God's hand in all that we have done. There have been a number of people saved, added to the church and this month (February) alone we have already baptized 11 people.
As I reflect back over what we have accomplished, I am amazed that we have been able to do:
We have seen the church grow to an average of 100 in the past three years, even though we are in a building program.
We have started a Christian School, Lighthouse Baptist Academy, that now has 102 students from K4 through 12th grade.
We have maintained our regular services and outreach programs.
We have seen a number saved and added to the church.
And one other amazing fact is that the Church allows me the privilege of being the Pastor!
We are now beginning to add the following programs:
1. Begin our graded Sunday School on March 7th at 10 a.m.
2. Begin a Wednesday evening program for our children from
kindergarten through fifth grade. We already have a program for our teens.
3. Worker training classes for ushers, greeters, teachers and nursery.
4. Discipleship classes
5. And many other exciting programs to reach out to our community.
If you are not already associated with a good Soul Conscious church, consider visiting with us!
We make no apology for strong preaching, sound doctrine, and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word.
