GROWING TOGETHER

Home Groups

Sharing and connecting with others is the best way to grow in your faith through friendship, prayer support, and participating in learning opportunities in the casual comfort of a private home – Home Groups at Lorne Park Baptist Church form the core of church fellowship. Home Groups are the way to go beyond “church on Sundays” to building each other up in faith in Jesus, and providing encouragement, becoming discipled and loved.

At a typical Home Group meeting expect to:

  • Chat with others in the group, catch up on the events in each other’s lives
  • Engage in lively discussion of a study topic
  • Spend time in prayer over concerns that have been shared among the group
  • Plan service projects
  • Enjoy fellowship over light refreshments

If you are interested in participating in a Home Group, sign up below or talk to a leader on Sunday.

Children

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV

Special Events also happen throughout the year, which are designed to help connect kids and families together. 

KidZone is designed especially for children ages 4 to grade 5. Actively play, learn, laugh, sing, share…all in ways that are fun and interesting that appeal to children today!    The bible lesson is always applicable and understandable to them.  KidZone is a fun place to learn about Jesus and to understand His love for His children!  Several times a year we have special guests too!  Come and explore KidZone with us!

BabyZone is a safe place for infants who need lots of cuddles and special care during the Sunday Service.

ToddlerZone is for those active wee ones (ages 2-3 years.) We combine play, stories and crafts all while learning about the love that Jesus has for each one of these children. The children will hear simple Bible stories and the basics of the Christian faith.  They also begin to build special friendships while here and learn to care about their friends.  Offered during the Sunday Service.

SPARC Day Camp is a community based outreach program which provides a safe, creative and fun environment for children where they can grow through friendships and example of Christian values lived by caring and enthusiastic counsellors. Camps are offered for children 3-14 with volunteer opportunities for 15 year olds.

Young Adults

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Adults

Men’s Ministry

“That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.” (Eph 3:16 KJV)

Worship

We are called to worship; it is ingrained within our very being.  Sunday Services seek to worship and praise God through contemporary praise songs, newer versions of old hymns and some traditional hymns as well, scripture readings, prayer time and special highlights.  Worship calls us to worship to an audience of one – to God alone.  God desires us to respond in praise to Him and adore Him – Sing a joyful song unto the Lord and praise his glorious name.

Opportunities to respond to God in worship include:

  • Being a part of the worship team, choir or bells
  • Reading scriptures and dramatic readings
  • Interpretative dance, art, sharing testimony
  • Audio/visual and sound teams

Practices:

  • Worship Team – Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30 PM, plus Sunday mornings at 8:50 AM.
  • Choir – Thursdays, 7:30 – 9:30 PM. from September – June;
    Sunday mornings before service
  • Bells of Praise – each Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday mornings when playing
