Welcome To Long Branch Baptist Church
From the Deacons . . .
Luke 8:16 tells us that "No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light." Bible also tells us that "JESUS is the way, the truth, and the light."
Let our light shine bright so others can see CHRIST in us. That way the light that illuminates us can shine brightly to help others.

As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for ALL who believe in Him, ETERNAL life in Jesus Christ. Our Christian belief, according to Scripture, is that Jesus came back to life, was raised from the dead three days after his death on the cross. Therefore, on Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
In recognition of this season, the Decorating Committee will be placing three crosses on the grounds at the front of the church. In addition, our plans include placing a cross inside the church baptistery and containers of white lilies on the altar and wreaths on the front church doors. The lilies will later be given to residents at nursing homes.
Myrtle Beach Convention Center will host a Women of Joy Conference, May 1– 3, giving Christian women of our area an opportunity to participate in this gathering that challenges and inspires women in all age groups.
Sally Downing would like to create a group to attend this weekend of worship, Bible Study, and dynamic speakers. Reservations made before February 11 are discounted.
If you would be interested in going, see Sally. You can also get more information about the conference at womenofjoy.org on the internet. Click on Events and Myrtle Beach.
SUNDAY MORNING FELLOWSHIP
Sunday School will begin an ongoing Sunday Morning Fellowship this month. On Sunday mornings, you are invited to come beginning at 9:00 for a light breakfast and fellowship prior to Sunday morning Bible Study. This is a perfect time for the individuals and families you invite to church to get acquainted with teachers and class members as well as church leaders prior to services. It is also a good time to become acquainted with other church members whom you may only see briefly on Sundays.
Classes and organizations within the church will be responsible for providing food and serving each Sunday. Items appropriate for children and adults will be provided.
Sundays in December are already scheduled. If your class, missions group, or committee would like to participate beginning in January, see Roger Parker, Sunday School Director.
