Ministries

 

Soulwinning & Visitation

We are reaching our community for the cause of Christ. We believe in world missions, however, we also believe that world missions begins in our own Jerusalem, which is right here in Raleigh County, WV. We are convinced that even in this modern age in which we're living, nothing will ever take the place of one-on-one soul winning. We are knocking doors and extending personal invitation to visit the Lord’s house. Our goal is to reach as many homes as possible.

 

Sunday School

We're very excited about our Sunday School ministry here at Lester Baptist Church.  Every Sunday from 10 AM to 10:45 AM our Sunday School teachers do a wonderful job training our membership in the fundamentally sound truths of the Word of God. We have a class for every age group and you can rest assured that there is a class for each member of your family. Make Lester Baptist’s Sunday School ministry a part of your family's next Sunday morning. Our Sunday school classes are divided as follows:

Age 4 – 1st Grade

2nd Grade – 3rd Grade

4thGrade – 6th Grade

Teens Class

Combined Adult Class

 

Bus Ministry

We run a bus in our surrounding community bringing children to Sunday School. We bring the children in and teach them about Jesus Christ. We have seen some of them trust Christ as their personal Savior and seen a few baptized. These children enjoy riding the bus. If you live in our area and would like for us to pick-up your child to bring them to Sunday School then by all means, please contact us.

 

Jr. Church

We have a service for 6th Grade and down that is geared to teach children the Bible while the morning service is taking place. This is not a time of recreation for the children. Here it is a structured time where they are taught Bible truths, songs, and Scripture memory. The Jr. Church children sing in the Sunday morning worship service once a month.

 

 

Mailbox Club

This ministry is a mail-order Bible lesson. We have children all over the country that correspond with us in this ministry. We have also had a few adults to complete and mail the lessons back to us. These lessons teach Bible truths to help their Christian walk. Many of these children need parental involvement to complete the lesson seeing how they cannot read or write yet.

 

Nursing Home Ministry

 We hold a church service the third Saturday of every month at the Hilltop Nursing Center at Oak Hill, WV. We take the members of our church there and sing the old fashioned hymns and preach the Bible. We go there with the idea so many times that we want to be a blessing to them and return home being the ones blessed.

 

Music Ministry

We have a choir that sings in the Sunday services. These choir members are made up of the membership here at the Lester Baptist Church. We have many of our members that take part in the special music program singing a solo, duet, or trio. We are trying to develop a servant’s heart among the adults and the young people through the music ministry encouraging them to use their talents for the Lord.

 

Missions

 We are presently supporting six missionaries across the globe. We believe that it is our God given responsibility according to the Great Commission to send people out to win the lost. We send these people to places that we cannot go while we reach our mission field right here in our community.

 

Needed Ministries

Public School Bible Club – We would like to start a Bible Club in the local schools at Liberty Jr. & Sr. High. We want to take advantage of this opportunity that we have in the near future.

 

Master’s Clubs – We have an ever increasing need to begin such a class to teach children Bible truths. God has blessed us with a few children and we need to be searching for all the things that we could put into place to encourage their walk with God.

 

Young Married Class – We need to have more young married couples in church. We also need to have in place a Sunday School class that helps meet their needs. Pray with us that God will bring this to pass in the future.

 

Prison Ministry – We are just minutes from Southern Regional Jail here in WV. We have an opportunity to take the Gospel and see souls saved and lives changed.
