LABC

Weekday Preschool Scholarship Fund
Your generosity as a church, to help our families has been overwhelming!  The Preschool is so blessed to have such wonderful support.  Although things have not worked out as I had hoped with the family, I have started a Scholarship Fund for other families who are struggling to keep their children in the program.  Sometimes it is only a matter of helping out for one month.  It's so nice to have the capabilities to help when it is needed.  If you are one of the families or groups who contacted me and are still willing to pay for even one month, it will be greatly appreciated.  Please send your contribution to the church and designate it for the Preschool.
Sincerely, Pat Stewart, Director.

Also, this gives parents a night out to do last minute shopping for their loved ones. Please make sure your children have dinner before they arrive. We will provide snacks and goodies throughout the night:) Please bring nonperishable food items to donate to Salvation Army and have girls bring a wrapped girl's gift and boy's a wrapped boy's gift (maximum $5). I look forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior with the children:)

Fearless Generosity

Our Excellence in Giving emphasis has begun. Begin praying now about your financial commitment to the ministries of your church.

Home Fellowship & Prayer Gatherings
October 18-November 16

Monday night's (October 18) Cottage Prayer meeting for 'Fearless Giving' was a joy in many respects. First of all, being with church family members who do not normally socialize together is always a blessing. The laughter was contagious and smiles were in abundance. Hearing personal testimonies warmed the hearts of everyone and gave us a closer insight to people's faith and commitment.  God blessed our time together at Bill and Trina Elliott's home. Let us encourage all our LABC family to attend one of the cottage meetings and enjoy this time of fellowship and faith as we search our hearts for what God would have us do through giving for his ministry. 'The abundant life God promises us is not dependent upon our circumstances or financial wealth. It is only dependent upon our love relationship with God' (God's Little Book of Guarantees by Heather Kopp).

The American Dream goes like this: 'get all you can, save all you can, achieve all you can.' If you do, you'll be happy, healthy and enter your retirement years with peace and tranquility. The only problem with this: it's a myth. The life people really want is found not in getting but giving.

In The Giving Myths, author Dr. Steve McSwain makes a compelling argument that your highest purpose in life is to give yourself away and generously share your abundance with the world. Any other way to self-actualization and personal fulfillment is a dead-end. Contrary to popular culture, the life you've always wanted isn't found in career choice, personal achievements, or even the amount of money you may amass in a lifetime. Instead, it's found in one of the simplest, yet most challenging, principles ever given by the greatest teacher who ever lived. Miss getting and living by this principle and you'll miss getting the life you've always wanted.

Introducing Planet 56

Lexington Avenue Baptist Church is committed to the ministry of all generations, including the children and youth. The future of our church lies among our young people. After much thought on how we could minister to the needs of our older children, and inspiration from a Space themed VBS Planet 56 was born.

Fifth and Sixth Graders are known as tweeners. The reason they are called "tweeners" is because they are in between elementary age students and junior high age students. Not only are they "tweeners" in their age and grade, but also in maturity and spirituality. They are children yet they are looking to break out and be more than just children. Because of this they always feel in between. Because of this there is a major need for a 5th and 6th grade program.The goal LABC has for our 5th and 6th graders is to simply give them a place to be ministered to…a place they feel that they belong. This ministry is just for fifth and sixth graders and prepares them for their transition into the Youth Ministry. Our focus is fun events, fellowship, Bible study, and special activities just for them. Already great things are happening in planet 56. For example, during VBS we had a large group of 5th and 6th graders who joined us for the special Planet 56 activities, and already our tweens are enthusiastic about the new program. The 5th and 6th grade room downstairs was transformed to create an environment where the children could be inspired, learn, and have a cool place to call their own.

The Planet 56 Sunday School is out of this world. With strong leaders like Shawna Stomberger and Chip Minks our 5th and 6th grade ministry is effective and gives our 5th and 6th graders just what they need and want from our church. Thank you for supporting Planet 56. If you feel led to help with this age group please contact me and we can plug you in to this exciting new program.

Love, Tara

Morocco Choir Bios & Pics




About the Choir
The voices united choir is a combined choir, which includes choir members from Kentucky Baptist Fellowship (KBF) churches, including Brenda Farmer and Phil Quinn from LABC and twelve choir members from the Protestant Church of Morocco (EEAM), including Helge and Christiano from our partner church in Rabat. Both groups (from Morocco and Kentucky) have been rehearsing separately and will come together to form one combined choir that will tour KBF churches. The Morocco members of the choir are, for the most part, African students from various Subsaharan African nations who are studying at universities in Morocco. They represent some of the brightest most talented young people from their countries and most will eventually return to be leaders there. See the insert inside this Key for pictures and biographies for each of these choir members.
The protestant church of Morocco, including our partner church in Rabat, is a French speaking church made up primarily of African students, with some others from various backgrounds who work in Morocco. The church also ministers to African migrants/refugees who flee war, famine, and extreme poverty in Africa and wind up in Morocco. The situation for these migrants is desperate. An offering will be taken at each concert to support the ministry to these African migrants.

Nada Mission Trip Report

Wednesday, August 11, 7:00 p.m.
See the pictures and hear the stories from the recent Nada Mission Trip

We have safely returned from the Nada Mission trip. Thank you for your prayers.

Children's Team: Tara Farmer, Jill Robertson, Elizabeth Robertson, Barrett Minks, Hope Farmer, and Kate Valentine, went swimming and made hotel hospitality cards with Nada children. Our children and their leaders worked hard, painted beautiful hospitality cards, were at all times cooperative, made friends with Nada children and were flexible when plans changed. The pool did not open as early as advertised, the snack bar was closed, and the children had much more time at the mission than expected. We are proud of our children.

Youth Team: Andrea East, Kyle Bottoms, Justin Johson, Kelsey Stillwell, Rosalind Campbell, Dianne Stillwell, Laken Thomas, Hannah Sims, Casey Roberts, and Paul Robertson had several jobs: leading youth Sunday School with Nada youth, yard work (weed eating, hauling rocks, and cleaning up), and a college-fun trip to Eastern Kentucky University, movies, and Legends' game. One of the Nada youth was interested in the law enforcement program at EKU, but all of the Nada and LABC youth learned more about what it takes to go to college. They were attentive during the tour and meetings and asked great questions. I think they can all imagine themselves in college some day.

Yard Sale Team: Everyone of you from our church who donated items was a part of this team. Jo Garnett organized the yard sale here and in Nada. Maria Rice and Phyllis Thomas spent many hours here sorting clothes and other items. Tommy Valentine joined us on Monday to help. Tim Dievert delivered all of the stuff in his trailer. The yard sale brought many from the Nada community into the church who do not normally attend church. They were excited to find so many nice, affordable things.

Home Repair Team: Marvon Smith, Danny Lay, and Henry Wilson, spent a long hot day putting wood siding on a house and framing an attic door, using a generator since there was no electricity hooked up yet.

Bus Driver: I was the bus driver. My job was to keep gas in the bus and get us there on time. I did get us there on time.

A Story: We've always said that our relationship with Nada was a partnership and a friendship. When Jo was talking one of our long time Nada friends, she told her how much she liked the University of Kentucky shirt she was wearing. A little while later our friend came back to the Mission. She had changed shirts and gave Jo the UK shirt she had been wearing. Jo said, 'I don't think I've ever been given the shirt off someone's back before.' Isn't that something like what Jesus told us to do?

Ask anyone who went on the trip and I'm sure they'll have a story to tell too. The one's about me are not true.

Agape, Keith

The Green Earth Challenge:
Integrating Faith & The Environment

by Winne Williams

Sunday, July 18, 6:30 p.m.


Get the book now and read it before the Book Club meets. The book is available at the display table on the first floor across from the elevator.

The Green Earth Challenge

Cost: $10 (Also available for loan at no cost from the office.)

About the Book: Part travelogue, part hymn of praise, and part environmental primer, The Green Earth Challenge will change the way you view the planet, your faith, and your role as a steward of God's creation. Winnie Williams has been fortunate to see many of the world's natural wonders and offers a passionate, biblically-based argument for protecting and preserving our natural resources. She also describes our worldwide energy challenges and offers practical advice for reevaluating our personal, national, and global behavior. Reading The Green Earth Challenge will awaken your gratitude for nature's miracles and inspire your resolve to preserve them for future generations.

Fearless:
Imagine Your Life Without Fear

by Max Lucado

Sunday, August 15, 6:30 p.m.


Get the book now and read it before the Book Club meets. The book is available at the display table on the first floor across from the elevator.

Fearless

Cost: $17 (Also available for loan at no cost from the office.)

About the Book: Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn't it be great to walk out?

Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, and doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, when you could trust more and fear less. Can you imagine your life without fear?

About Max Lucado: Max Lucado loves words - written, spoken - it does not matter. He loves to craft sentences that are memorable, inspiring and hopefully life-changing. In almost 25 years of writing, more than 65 million books filled with his words have been sold.

Max is the only author to have won three Christian Book of the Year* awardsin 1999 for Just Like Jesus, in 1997 for In the Grip of Grace, and in 1995 for When God Whispers Your Name. In 2005, Reader's Digest magazine dubbed him 'America's Best Preacher' and in 2004, Christianity Today magazine called him 'America's Pastor.' The product line for 3:16The Numbers of Hope sold more than four million units worldwide, including one million units of the cornerstone trade book of the same title (released in September 2007), making it the fastest selling Lucado product in his career.

His works have appeared on every major national bestseller list including Publishers Weekly, USA Today, The New York Times, Evangelical Christian Publishers Association, and Christian Booksellers Association. He has been featured in countless media outlets and national broadcasts.

Max's writings have been published in a wide array of formats including adult books, gift books, children's titles, Bibles, commentaries, calendars and devotionals. He is also the author/creator of 'Max Lucado's Hermie & Friends' brand family, one of the most popular animated DVD series in the marketplace, with more than 5 million units sold to date. His words have also inspired a branded line of greeting cards and gift books for Hallmark/Dayspring that has sold more than 15 million copies since its 2001 debut.

Max Lucado is a Minister of Preaching at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, where he has served since 1988. He has been married to Denalyn Preston Lucado since 1981, and they have three grown daughters Jenna, Andrea and Saraand one son-in-law, Brett.

BAREFOOT! Kick off your shoes! Feel the soft, green grass tickle your soles. In a time when our lives feel tempest-tossed by worries and woes, PASSPORT invites you to go barefoot and soak in the soothing teachings of Jesus. In his words and his example, Christ beckons us to live simply, trust in God's loving care, and share abundantly so that all may know the grace and providence of God.

There's no better place to experience this truth than camp, where we learn together, worship together, work together, and play together. Our feet may get dirty, but we'll know the deep satisfaction of getting them that way and the fresh, clean feel when they are washed. Come with us as we follow Jesus through 'the lilies of the field' to a life that is simpler but so much more abundant.

The Wilson Family
KBF is pleased to announce that Kristi Wilson will be the recipient of the fifth Extreme Build home built in McCreary County. Kristi Wilson is a single mother of two children ages seventeen and two. She works full time, often over fifty hours a week to provide for her children. She has struggled over the years, but has been able to buy her own land and a small mobile home that is rapidly deteriorating. Kristi comes from a large family of six children whose father died at a young age. She knows hardship first-hand and wants to provide a better life for her children. She left a marriage to an alcoholic husband who has no contact with his child and provides no support or assistance. She receives no real support from her second child's father and has made the decision to raise her children on her own, but needs help to provide a safe and decent home for them. As Kristi says, 'My main focus is my kids. I'm doing this for my kids so they can have something they can be proud of!'

Materials:Favorite Bible. If you have a devotional, and article, a commentary piece, or other item that opens your understanding of the selected scripture for that week or shows the movement of God in your life, please bring it to share as well.

Galilean Home accepting Haiti Children

The Galilean Home has agreed to accept forty children which were victims of the Haiti earthquake, as soon as the appropriate papers are finalized.  The Galilean Home has been a class project of the Mary Martha Sunday School Class, with Lexington Avenue Baptist Church, for several years. The Red Cross is loaning them air mattress and blankets until more permanent arrangements can be made.
    Items they need are:  Twin size mattress, sheets, pillows, blankets, towels, washcloths, toiletries, laundry detergent, cleaning items, and paper products.  They will need clothing and food items at a later date when they actually receive the children.
    Address where items can be delivered are:
Galilean Home Ministries, Inc.
