Upcoming Events / Announcements
THANK YOU FOR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL! - A tremendous number of children came our way for an outstanding week of VBS. Our enrollment at this time was 503. We are blessed to have so many volunteers who came to teach, guide, love, and point boys and girls to Jesus. Some 157 volunteers were involved in some supportive way in Bible study, Worship Rally, Missions Education, Crafts, Recreation and Snacks. Only in heaven will you fully know the impact you have had. Thank you church for your great support of Submerged, Finding Truth Below the Surface. Parents, continue to enjoy the Taking it Home CD as you continue to learn and enjoy the songs.

Summer VBS Wednesdays—We continue the fun and learning of VBS each Wednesday evenings during July and August, 6:15pm-7:15pm. The preschool (threes-Kindergarten) will meet in room 150. Elementary grades 1– 5 will meet in room 137.

Thank you for Donating to VBS! - These local restaurants have been most generous in donating refreshments to our VBS Teacher’s Break Room: Panera Bread (Lawndale), Chick-fil-A (Brassfield), McDonalds (Westridge), and Long Horn Steak House (Battleground).

Camp Caraway Scholarships—Price per camper is $275. We remember the excitement of going to camp. Camp Caraway, operated by NC Baptist State Convention, has been excelling in camp experiences since 1963. However, today’s prices are a big expense for a family. Scholarships are needed.  We hope to assist with a partial scholarship to those needing them. You may contribute any amount by designating your check to Lawndale Baptist Church and noting Children’s Ministry in the memo.

Register Now for Camp Caraway—Camp dates are August 1-5, 2016. Brochures have been mailed to all those enrolled in grades 1-5. The deposit amount of $75 with the completed registration form holds your spot. Balance is due by July 6. We will have six great chaperones present with our Lawndale group of boys and girls. Our available spots are almost filled. Please check first with Kelly Kenion in the church office on availability.

Weekday Preschool Scholarship Fund

Our Children's Learning Center has a wonderful ministry to preschoolers.  Little ones receive a solid developmental foundation built on Christian principles.  We have established a scholarship fund in memory of Marion and Doris Ellis (charter members of Lawndale Baptist Church).  The fund will assist parents with monthly fees.  Any amount you wish to give will honor this wonderful couple and help a preschool child get off to a great start in life.  Checks can be made to "Lawndale Baptist Church" and designate it for "Weekday Scholarship Fund".

For other current activities, please check the Children's section of the Lawndale Leader.
