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 Lordâs house. Our goal is to
reach as many homes as possible.
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 Baptistâs Sunday
School ministry a part of your family's next Sunday
morning. Our Sunday school classes are divided as
Age 4 â 1st Grade
2nd Grade â 3rd Grade
4thGrade â 6th Grade
Combined Adult Class
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.
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.
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.
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 servantâs
heart among the adults and the young people through the
music ministry encouraging them to use their talents for
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.
Public School Bible Club â 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.
Masterâs Clubs â 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 â 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 â 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.
