Sunday Worship Services: 10:45 AM at Glenridge Middle School in Baldwin Park (2900 Upper Park Road, Orlando, FL 32814).
Lake Baldwin Church is a growing church near the heart of Orlando. The vision for Lake Baldwin Church was born in the hearts of people living in Baldwin Park, Winter Park, and other parts of the city. Since its inception in 2006 the church has continued to grow and has become a true community -- a place to know and be known. At LBC we believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is good news for the lost, good news for the found, good news for the city, and good news for the world. Visit our website (www.lakebaldwinchurch.com) or join us for Sunday morning worship to learn more about how LBC is diligently working to spread this good news! Lake Baldwin Church meets at Glendridge Middle School in Baldwin Park. The environment is relaxed, informal, and relational. Worship begins at 10:45 a.m.
Counting the hours till we see you RIGHT HERE for worship this Sunday! We're love you and are praying for you all!
Today we're checking in with the sagest of pairs. Many thanks to the gentleman and scholar Richard, and the lovely lady Susanne, who have graciously agreed to share some of their own story and perspective during this time of isolation. Join us today on Voices (https://lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog) for some Q and A at the Hostetter House...

"...the intensity and speed with which my anxiety ramped up mirrored the pace of the escalating crisis, and I knew that, left unchecked, my fear would soon leave me unable to function. Something had to be done, so I returned, as I often have over the years, to Philippians 4..."
Hit us up at lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog to continue reading about the transformative power of thanks, shared by our beloved friend and super chill church staff member, Kayla Oliver!
On this edition of Vocies, we are privileged to hear from TJ Sellers. Head over to our blog at lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog to read insights from our esteemed friend and church elder regarding generosity and the stimulus relief package.
"...I started hearing stories from people in our church. Those who already lost their jobs. Others who had their income cut in half with a low probability of it returning this year. And others who were facing the hard reality of laying off dozens of people overnight just to keep their business afloat..."
Originally from California and raised in Orlando, TJ is only a few years shy of being a true Florida native. A graduate of the University of Florida, TJ spends his time trying to bring restoration to our broken world through holistic relationships and his love for construction. TJ and his wife, Anna, have been members of LBC since 2010 and have added 3 kids to their family in the process (Adalyn 5, Luke 3, and Raegan 1). As an elder at LBC, TJ loves seeing people flourish through a meaningful relationship with God and His church body. If you ask, TJ will have a hard time turning down a game of beach volleyball, waterskiing, or escaping to the mountains for a few days.

"Some of us have read and heard enough about the coronavirus pandemic from the 'experts,' prognosticators, skeptics, doomsayers, humorists, friends and others along the spectrum from helpful to absurd, in every media form and channel, in-your-face-constantly, that we want to scream, Turn off the noise!
And yet, the reality is inescapable. The possibilities are dizzying and discouraging. So we read on. We watch the “news”. We endure. We track the numbers. We speculate. We plan. We socially-distance. And we pray.
I don’t wish to add to the noise...I do hope to share about a resource that has been most encouraging and helpful to me in these last few weeks..."
Head to lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog to continue reading today's post from Bart Johnson, our dear friend/church elder/weathered mountain man.
Bart became a Jesus-follower as a pre-teen, which, by God’s grace, shaped everything since. Marrying (way over his head, according to those who know him best) his forever best friend, Judy, then graduating from Oral Roberts University with a business degree, he has spent most of his vocational life in the technology business sphere. He has enjoyed serving as a PCA ruling elder for 30 years (the last 15 at LBC), led a dozen mission trips to Asia, managed a non-profit church planter training organization, and now helps lead ministry focused on developing indigenized teaching and training resources for Christian educators in a major Asian country. Bart’s favorite “hobby” is backpacking in high, rugged, remote and isolated wilderness areas of the far west.
Celebrate with us Easter morning! Same time same place, we hope to see you round quarter till eleven this Sunday morning, FB live or on the homepage of our website!

Friends, join us tonight at 6pm for a Tenebrae service, here for the livestream or at our website: lakebaldwinchurch.com.
Today we are honored to hear from Tara Fussell, our friend and fellow church family member. Tara tells of a recent harrowing experience for her family, and the hope she's encountered through prayer and community.
As Tara reminds us, our "burdens and anxieties are meant to be shared." Head to our church blog at lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog to read Tara's story, "One of the Most Terrifying Moments of Our Entire Lives."
Tara Fussell is a podiatrist here in Orlando, conducting podiatric surgery and wound care through Advent Health. Her husband James is a firefighter with the city of Orlando, and they have four children — Jackson, Juliet, Jade and Jett.
Our own stories are powerful, and even more so once shared. As Fred Rogers put it, "never underestimate the impact that your mere existence can have on another human being."
Starting today, you'll have the chance to hear from various members of our church family, each voice chronicling what it feels and looks like now that so many things have changed. Head to our church blog at https://lakebaldwinchurch.com/pastors-blog/2020/4/2/three-hidden-blessings where you can read about "Three Hidden Blessings in the Coronavirus Pandemic," a word of insight and consolation from the first voice - our friend and long-time member of Lake Baldwin Church, Jason Weimer.
Jason Weimer has served as a staff member with Cru for 18 years. He is co-author, with Roger Hershey, of The Finishers: Completing the Mission of Christ in Your Generation and currently serves as a writer and editor in Content and Communications Strategy at Cru’s global headquarters in Orlando.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another. --John 13:34
Dear LBC Family,
We continue to adapt to the changing situation related to COVID-19. As we do, we want to provide timely updates to keep you informed. All of our efforts are being shaped by the commands of Jesus to love one another and to love our neighbor.
Worship: Many people joined our first online worship service last Sunday! Special thanks to Joe, Joel, Darin Baker, and Stephen Bowles who made quick work of a challenging project. We loved singing and hearing the message. If you missed the service, you can still view it on the homepage of our website, lakebaldwinchurch.com. You are invited to be part of online worship every Sunday at 10:45, via Facebook or the home page of our website, until we are again allowed to worship in person.
Shepherding: We had a Zoom video meeting with our elders on Sunday evening. The elders want to increase our touch points with the congregation. Be sure to reach out to your elder and deacon with prayer requests and other needs. The deacons will be meeting by video on Wednesday evening to continue to shape our care plan.
SPLASH Kids: Heather Shiflett will be working with the SPLASH team as part of their vision to partner with parents in nurturing the faith of their children. Look for children’s bulletins to help the kids enjoy the worship service this Sunday. Over the next week, you will hear from our SPLASH team about other resources for the kids.
Social distancing: In keeping with guidelines from the government and the CDC, we will be cancelling all church meetings of 10 people or more.
Youth: Youth group meetings are cancelled until further notice. Mark McKinney will be reaching out to youth through a variety of means.
Community Groups: Joe has reached out to Community Group leaders, as these groups are often the best way to provide care, prayer, and spiritual encouragement. We encourage Community Groups to stay in touch through calls, text, or group video meetings.
Discover Grace series online: To encourage spiritual growth, there is a new “classes” link on the LBC website. You will be able to access Discover Grace 1 and the new Discover Grace 2 (starting next week). There are short videos with discussion questions, for personal or group use. Take some time to go through the whole Discover Grace series!

Prayer: Contact your elder, your community group, or our church office ([email protected]) with prayer requests.
In all these things we trust a sovereign and gracious God! Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6
With love and appreciation,
If you missed the live stream of this morning’s service, it will be available all week on our website: https://lakebaldwinchurch.com
lakebaldwinchurch.com THE GOOD NEWS IS FOR EVERYONE.
Dear LBC family,
As you already saw in our Weekly Update that went out this morning, the leadership of LBC is monitoring the situation with the Coronavirus, and we desire to respond in the most loving and responsible way given the latest developing news.
Well, news has indeed developed. We have learned today of a request from city officials to abstain from gathering in groups of 250 or more. In addition, many churches in our area have already decided to close their physical doors this Sunday and instead offer something in the digital space. Having engaged in much deliberation and prayer ourselves, we agree that this is one small way we too can love our neighbors. Many argue that measures like this will help to “flatten out the curve” of this spreading virus.
So with that, LBC will not be meeting this Sunday in the traditional way. In lieu of our 10:45 gathering at Glenridge Middle School, we will be providing a couple of options for “worship":
1. Through our Lake Baldwin Church page, we will be live-streaming both worship and preaching, beginning at 10:45.
2. At the same time, for those not on Facebook (and those who can’t tune in at 10:45), the entire service will be available to watch on our home page at lakebaldwinchurch.com starting at 10:45am Sunday.
Some ways you can participate:
Gather with your family, or in small groups in your homes to participate in the worship service together.
Have follow-up conversations about the sermon together.
Prepare your home with some bread (or crackers) and wine (or juice) to participate in the Lord’s Supper with those who are believers in Christ. *I will be instituting the Lord’s Supper at the end of my sermon this week.
Take this opportunity to “invite” someone to church! Who knows what the providence of God is up to in these coming weeks, but this could be a way to “send out” our church services to others via this digital medium.
Help us spread the word of these changes this weekend to those who may miss this post.
And, of course, pray. Pray for our church newly “distributed.” Pray for our hearts as we continue to need the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the grace of his community. Pray for what is happening in our world. May the Lord bring his healing and presence to those who are hurting.
In the midst of these unforeseen (and certainly undesired!) changes, I’m reminded of a strangely comforting verse from the psalms: "Our God is in the heavens, and he does as he wishes.” (Psalm 115:3). He is the God of the Cross, so we know that his wishes are ultimately unto bringing his great love to the hearts and lives of his children.
I will see you all this Sunday (via your computer screens)! at 10:45am on the Lake Baldwin Church page and/or at lakebaldwinchurch.com
Love y’all, and stay safe!
