In fall we look forward to cooler weather, colorful leaves, football, fall festivals, hunting, and, did I mention, cooler weather! I am ready for cooler weather … and for spending time out in the beauty of God’s creation in a deer stand!

At Lake Park, in the fall, we also look forward to our Anniversary Sunday celebrated on the first Sunday of November every year. That’s only a month away and I want to encourage each of you to to make plans now to be here on Sunday, November 5 at 11 am for worship and to stay for the fellowship meal to follow at Noon. Meats will be provided. If you are able, please bring side dishes and desserts to round out the meal.

I also want to encourage you to invite family, friends, former members, and especially those you know who need a church home. Invitations you can mail or personally give to someone are in the foyer. Make a phone call, send a text or email. Post an invitation on Facebook. I challenge each of you to personally invite at least one person to join us on November 5 at 11 am. Let people know they are welcome at Lake Park! Let them be reminded it is good to be in the house of the Lord!

Psalm 122:1 (NASB) I was glad when they said to me, “Let’s go to the house of the LORD.”

77 years ago on November 3, 1946, the first service of Lake Park Baptist Church was held. The sermon was based on Romans 3:23 “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” The goal was to reach the lost on the edge of the city of Augusta. At that service the first offering was received and was designated for Cooperative Missions.

Seventy-seven years later, Lake Park is continuing to share the Gospel, to give to and to do missions, to minister. Join us as we gather to thank God not only for 77 years of ministry at Lake Park but also for the many years of ministry of Broad Street Baptist Church in downtown Augusta. They, too shared the Gospel, gave to and did missions, and ministered to their neighbors. In October 2002 Broad Street Baptist Church disbanded and their membership roll was assumed by Lake Park Baptist Church. This year Lake Park’s Anniversary Sunday will also be a reunion service for former Broad Street Baptist Church members. If you know anyone who once attended Broad Street Baptist Church, be sure to invite them.

Just as Lake Park is continuing to minister, so ministry continues at the former location of Broad Street Baptist Church at 20 Broad Street Augusta, GA. When Broad Street Baptist Church disbanded, they donated the property to the Augusta Association of Baptist Churches and Broad Street Ministry Center was begun. Broad Street Ministry Center offers food, clothing, Bible study, children’s activities, reading instruction, and more to the underserved in Augusta, but the most important ministries are evangelism & prayer. The Gospel is shared with every client!

Our speaker for Anniversary Sunday will be Eric Mongillo, director of Broad Street Ministry Center. We will hear how lives continue to be changed and needs continue to be met at this location on the lower end of Broad Street. You will have the opportunity to give to the ministries of Broad Street Ministry and will learn how you can be involved in and pray for the ministries there.

The importance of Lake Park Baptist Church, and Broad Street Baptist Church is not in their membership and attendance numbers, nor in their buildings, nor in their longevity. No, the importance of those churches and of Broad Street Ministry Center is the people who have been saved, the lives that have been changed, and that God has received glory.

Join us on November 5 at 11 am as we give praise and glory and thanksgiving to our God!

Psalm 35:18 I will give you thanks in the great assembly; among the throngs I will praise you.

Remember, whenever you give to Lake Park, a portion of those funds go to ministries in Georgia, in North America, & internationally for disaster relief, clean water, food, healthcare, evangelism, prayer, & more.

Please let the pastor know your prayer needs 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Send a card, text, Facebook greeting, or make a call to wish these a Happy Birthday. Say a prayer for them on their special day.

Reach out to these & others in our church family especially those who are unable to attend at this time. Mail a card. Make a call. Send a text… And always pray for one another!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23



1 Chronicles 16:29 (NASB) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering and come before Him; Worship the Lord in holy array. 

Worship God with us on Sunday mornings at 11am in the sanctuary where every other pew has been closed to allow for social distancing OR worship Him from the safety of your home. It’s not as important where you worship Him, but that you worship Him.

Please stay at home until you feel safe resuming in-person worship especially if you are over 65 years old or have health issues.

Our worship services include a time to share and pray for needs, to study the Sunday School lesson, a time of musical worship, and a time to hear the Word preached. All completed in only 1 hour.  After the worship service, take time to visit with your church family 6 feet apart on the grass lawns leaving the sidewalks open for people to walk on.

There are needs at the church, in Augusta, and world-wide that you can meet by giving to Lake Park. Part of the monies received pay expenses that continue at Lake Park. Part go to meet needs at various ministries throughout the world. That is the beauty of the Cooperative Program as Southern Baptists combine gifts to meet needs and share God’s love.

You can bring your offering to church on Sunday morning and drop it in the offering box in the foyer or mail it to the church at 211 Milledge Rd, Augusta, GA 30904, or drop it in the mail slot on the office entrance door anytime.
