A Message
From Jason





We gather weekly as a community to talk to God through worship and prayer and to hear from God through scripture. This helps us form relationships and find encouragement so together we can fully follow Jesus.

The most we’ve ever had!

“Life before Jesus was very lonely and difficult. I struggled with self-image and self-control. This made it harder for me to process my anger, and I ended up getting in fights and losing my friends. In my Junior year, a friend invited me to LCBC. I wasn’t raised religious, so coming to church was scary for me. In my first experience during worship, I felt relief and my eyes flooded with tears. I started going to High School Ministry with my friends, which is where I heard about Fall Retreat. It was at Fall Retreat that I gave my life to Jesus. Since then, I no longer let anger control my life. I turn to the Bible first for guidance. I’ve learned to love and forgive. I’m trying to follow the path that Jesus has for me.”

Baptism is a public expression of faith in Christ. It’s a symbolic act that celebrates the life change Jesus has begun in a person’s heart. When we baptize people, we’re following Jesus’ great commission in Matthew 28:19.

David's Story

“I grew up in church but never really trusted in Jesus. I didn’t have a good circle of friends, and I didn’t care about having a relationship with God. I was angry and depressed all the time. I felt worthless, alone, and broken. This past May I broke down. Through tears, I told my mom and my little brother I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I felt like I couldn’t do anything right. After talking to Danny, the Student Ministry Director at LCBC Dickson City, I realized I needed to start living my life for Christ and truly walk with God. I have completely surrendered to God and have never felt more relieved. I have so much joy and contentment because I’ve decided to trust God with my life."

We believe that serving not only brings us closer to God, but reminds us to love others like he does. We use the unique ways that God has gifted us to help create welcoming environments where God can change lives.

Amy's Story

“This is my 27th year teaching at Governor Mifflin and my 17th year in the world of special education. For the last 3 years, I’ve felt like I couldn’t successfully teach because my students’ basic needs were not being met. My husband and I learned about G.O.L.D. at our initial Guest Experience training at LCBC Wyomissing, and I knew this was what was my kids needed, too! Now my classroom aide and I greet our students with a smile, own our roles and dig in to the opportunities we have as teachers, set our classroom up to look the part of a welcoming, safe space, and deliver the wow by looking for ways to show students we see and care for them, like handing out a piece of candy or checking in when someone’s been absent. Our students have flourished since we implemented this!”





Life change happens when we connect in intentional relationships with others and grow alongside those who share our desire to be more like Jesus.

Gregory's Story

“Last year I was invited to the Young Adult Group at LCBC and decided to visit even though I wasn’t sure about trying out church again. To my surprise, I was surrounded by peers who also were figuring out their faith in Jesus. To see people my age going through similar journeys made me feel less alone and helped me trust God myself. I decided to give my life to Jesus and have been doing my best to follow him.”

Neil's Story

“Before trusting Jesus, my life was very isolated from others. I prioritized material gains and making money over building healthy relationships with my family. It left me feeling empty with no real friends in my life. After being given a Bible, I got curious about faith. I went online and searched for ways to explore faith, and found out about Starting Point. Through the people I met and conversations I had there, I gave my life to Jesus. When I look back, I can’t imagine what my life would have looked like without trusting Jesus. I’m light-years different now.”

When we fully follow Jesus and honor God with what he’s given to us, we are putting him first in our heart in an act of obedience, love, worship, and trust. By living generously and faithfully giving our resources, we can move our mission as a church forward together.
