Our Ministries

Children's Ministries

Children's Ministry

Children are important to us here at Lindsay Lane. We believe in raising up children to know Christ and we do so by passing down our faith to the next generation. Our Children’s Ministry team is committed to partnering with parents to grow our families in Christ and create a legacy of faith for future generations.

We are here to help your child grow, know, accept and love God. Our age appropriate ministries exist to teach the truth about God’s word and share the gospel with our children based on their age and developmental needs. Our Children’s Ministry team is intentional and we are excited about partnering with our families to invest in the next generation for Christ!

Little Lane / MMO

Believing that all children are special in God’s eyes, with individual personalities, our goal is to help each child obtain his/her full potential. We believe in love, laughter, and learning at Little Lane by nurturing self-confidence through creative activities and exploration of the world around us. We believe this is accomplished by offering exciting challenges for the children, with the least amount of pressure.


Lindsay Lane Christian Academy is our K-12 school. Follow the link below to find out more information about the school.


The Upward Sports ministry desires to promote the discovery of Jesus through sports. Upward provides an opportunity for the church to reach out to the community by sharing the gospel of Jesus in a sports setting. Upward also strives to provide the best sports experience for every child; we emphasize skills, development, and the joy of play. We fight back against the "win at all costs" mentality that often leaves children under-developed or turns them away from sports altogether. We currently offer Basketball and Cheerleading during the fall and winter seasons.

Family Ministries

LLBC Family Ministries Vision Statement - Glorify God by making disciples in the family – nurturing and strengthening each family member into Christ-like maturity.

One of the blessings and realities of life in the USA is that the American family may take many different forms. According to recent research, over 50% of US families would be considered non-traditional (Single Parent, Step Family, etc.). This is a blessing because a member of a non-traditional family should not feel inferior or odd. It is a reality that must be accepted because so many people only think of traditional families (Father, Mother, Biological Children) when they hear the word - “family”.

At LLBC, we want to serve and minister to all types of families. You can see that we have a wide variety of family ministries, that continues to grow.

Please consider letting LLBC Family Ministries assist you in your journey of life together. Deuteronomy 6:6,7

Music & Worship Ministries

Throughout history, from the new mother singing a tender lullaby with her child to the soldier singing a rousing song with his troops, music has always been at the heart of every generation. Likewise, touching the lives of both young and old, music will always play an important role in man's worship of God. God created music, and He loves His creation.

Here at Lindsay Lane Baptist Church, the Music Ministry has a three-fold purpose:

  1. Ministry to God through worship,
  2. Ministry to each other through fellowship and encouragement, and
  3. Ministry to the world through evangelism.

It is our desire to offer every person a variety of musical opportunities that will give glory to our Lord, Jesus Christ; provide encouragement for both musical and spiritual growth; and clearly tell the powerful message that Jesus Christ loves everyone. All of this is accomplished in an environment of praise, joy, and thanksgiving.

Audio / Video / Media

At Lindsay Lane, we use high quality audio, video and lighting systems to enhance and give clarity to our worship services and special presentations. We use servant/volunteers, who work behind-the-scenes, to run these systems. The areas of service include audio, camera operation, video editing and graphics, lighting, media duplication/distribution, and stage set-up.
