College and Career Ministry
A strong College and Career Ministry brings an energy that every church is desperately needing; therefore, Linwood Baptist Church started The Bridging The Gap Sunday School Class.
Every year Linwood Baptist Church has a special event to strengthen the relationships of our married couples with not only each other, but with the Lord. We have a first-class Valentine Banquet at the church with special themes, decorations, food, activities, door prizes and speakers. We also have a two-day, off-site marriage retreat that is a memory making and life changing experience for our marriages.
The Linwood Ladies enjoy special meetings throughout the year with various themes and topics to fellowship and grow in the Lord. The Linwood Ladies have their biggest event in the Spring followed by the Ladies Summer Luncheons, which are the first Thursday of June, July and August where they meet at a local restaurant for a guest speaker and themed luncheon. The year concludes with the special Ladies Christmas Breakfast.
From skeet shooting to a cookout, the men have meetings throughout the year for encouraging fellowship centered around the work of the Lord.
Great Commission Day
Great Commission Day is the main outreach effort of Linwood Baptist Church. We meet the first Saturday of every month. We begin at 10:30 am and end by 2:30 pm. It is four hours of non-stop excitement and service to the Lord. Between 10:45 am – 12:15 pm, we have teams that visit and deliver baked goods to the local community surrounding our church, as well as expanded door knocking, care visits, children’s and youth visitation. Secure childcare is available during these outreach efforts. During this time we have prayer teams who walk the aisles, hallways, classrooms and surround the pulpit praying for God’s protection, power and productivity upon His church. We also have our correspondence team meeting during this time to write cards of encouragement to the sick and grieving and notes of thanks to recent visitors. At 12:15 pm, we meet back in the fellowship hall to enjoy a freshly prepared meal and time of fellowship together where we hear a report from each team on how their outreach efforts went. At 1:00 pm we divide up into five different groups below. These classes are not only for our church members, but also others in the community.
- Great Commission Kids
- S.T.A.N.D. Youth Ministry activity
- Ladies Bible Study
- Men’s Bible Study
- Discipleship University for new converts or new member who have never been through discipleship training.
At 2:00 pm The Great Commission Kids have a time of exciting games, and dismissal of Great Commission Day is at 2:30 pm. It is an exciting time where there is a place for everyone to serve.
Lamp of Learning Scholarship
The lamp of learning is a scholarship started through Linwood Baptist Church in 2015 for the purpose of helping young people gain a Christian education.
