First Time At Lighthouse?

We know that the first visit to any place can be seemingly overwhelming. We completely understand, but we want to put you at ease. At Lighthouse, we are used to having first-time guests; they show up every Sunday! Below are some FAQ’s that we want to answer for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect as an adult?

Most adults attend our Sunday Morning Service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Pennachietti. This service begins at 11:00 AM and lets out at about 12:30 PM or a little before.
 
Also, during the 9:45 AM hour there is an adult Sunday School class offered for adults of all walks of life. This class is a smaller group setting where you are invited to meet people, enjoy prayer and fellowship, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your stage of life. The best way to get to know people at Third Baptist Church is to visit during our Sunday School hour.

What’s here for my children?

Starting with an excellent nursery, there is something special for every age child from birth through college. At every service there is a safe, clean, and highly-staffed nursery for children four years old and under. For children five years old through sixth grade there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered Sunday School Classes starting at 9:45 AM. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
 
For students seventh grade through twelfth grade, there are Sunday School Classes in our Youth Department. Most of the teens attend a class one hour and then our Sunday Morning Worship Service with their parents. Wednesday nights offer a time for classes as well. Our ProTeens Youth Group for those seventh grade through twelfth grade also meets on Wednesday nights. All Youth Classes start at 7:00 PM on Wednesday nights!

Finding Nurseries, Classes, and Services

Our greeters and ushers are located in the lobby as you arrive. They will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place. Our nursery is located in the second hallway of the main floor. We offer classes for children of all ages on Sunday as well as Wednesday, so bring your entire family!

What Should I Wear?

While it is certainly not required, the majority of our congregation dresses in their Sunday best. Many men have on a tie, and ladies a dress; some don’t. The most important thing is that you are here!

Do I have to give in the offering?

Each service, our ushers will pass the offering plates. This is the time when you will give us your guest information card. Just drop it in the plate. Many of our regular attenders will give their tithes and offerings as well. If you desire to give, you may. But you will not have to or be expected to.

Above all, we want you to experience a truth-centered friendly church when you visit. If there is anything that we can do for you, simply find an usher, pastor, or anyone that seems like a “regular.” They will take the time to assist you and answer any questions you may have. LBC is the end of your search for a friendly church!
