Life Chain Sunday

Filed under: Church News — Tags: , — Church @ 9:09 AM

I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…Thine eyes did see my substance ….How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them.” Since 1973’s Roe vs. Wade decision every year there are 1.37 million children in the United States alone that are not given the privilege to live, and to read this precious thought from God’s Holy Word.  We invite you to come and stand with us Sunday October 4TH from 2 – 3 pm as we peacefully proclaim the truth that abortion takes 37,000 innocent lives per day.  We will be gathering on US Hwy 27 in front of Badcock Home Furnishings, and S & S Tire.  Signs will be available at both locations.   We encourage you to come stand with us as we peacefully protest the murder of the unborn.

Have you been trying to find a good place to retire?  Perhaps you have never heard of the Landmark Baptist Retirement Village.  We invite you to come relax in our quiet, gated community.  You will enjoy the fellowship of many other Christians that live here. This beautiful village was designed for retirees, however, it is not limited to them only.  There are 78 homes, each with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.  All homes are re-sales.  The village has its own chapel, which is used for community activities as well as a weekly Bible study.  The village is also just one block from Landmark Baptist Church!  You can find more information here.

J.B. Buffington

Filed under: Church News — Tags: — Church @ 8:40 AM

We take the time today to announce the home-going of a great man of God.  Brother J.B. Buffington went home to be with the Lord yesterday, August 20th.  We can only imagine the welcome home this great servant of the Lord received!  Only Heaven will tell how many souls came to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ through this man’s ministry.  His ministry included three pastorates, the last being for thirty years at the Calvary Baptist Church in Lakeland, Florida.   We are sad to see him go, but glad to know that “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Psalm 116:15.    Please be praying for Mrs. Buffington, and the rest of the family during this time of loss.

Here is an excerpt from his obituary:

Dr. Junious Bryson “J.B.” was a B-17 Pilot in the Army Air Corps during WWII.  He moved to Lakeland in 1963 from Bristol, Florida.  He was the pastor at Calvary Baptist Church before his retirement.  He is currently a member of the Landmark Baptist Church in Haines City.

Services times and information for Brother Buffington are as follows:

Bigger and Better

We are excited to introduce some great new quality changes to our live services!  Just this week we have updated some of our equipment here at the church that will enable us to stream a much higher quality video to those who take advantage of our streaming services.  Our first test run was last Wednesday night, and you can see the difference in quality by watching the archived service.  You certainly won’t be wasting your time as our missionary to Romania, Patrick Boyle, shared what God has accomplished with his work there in Romania.  He also preached a powerful – soul awakening message that will surely sound off some alarms in your heart!
If you haven’t taken the time to check out any of our services online, we encourage you to do so.  You can find any of our archived messages by clicking on our media link.  Or if you happen to be around a computer during one of our services, click on the live services link and watch any of our services live online – completely free of charge of course!  Once you have done that – shoot us an email through the contact us link, and let us know how you enjoyed it!

Well, its hard to believe, but summer is over and it’s time to get back to school.  Many of the Public schools in our area will begin classes this next Monday, but already here at Landmark our Christian School has geared up and started off to an exciting new year!  John Major, our new High School / Middle School Principal, and our new Elementary Principal, Mrs. Paula Carter are enthusiastic about a great year the Lord has planned for us at Landmark Christian School.  We invite you to join us at Landmark this Sunday for a great time as we celebrate Back to School Sunday.

Thank God for His Benefits

Filed under: Church News — Tags: , — Church @ 10:16 AM

We here at Landmark are truly blessed with a wonderful and gracious Saviour. We are pleased to celebrate not only the meeting of our goal for Do It Again Sunday, but the exceeding of it by almost double! As many of you know, we were praying that the Lord would meet the need of $150,000 to keep some important projects running that would have completely stopped without these funds. God came through miraculously, once again, and brought in a grand total of just over $259,500! Praise the Lord! We look forward to putting these projects into action, and allowing the Lord to use us in mighty ways for the great cause of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Back From Camp

Filed under: Church News — Tags: , , — Church @ 4:23 PM

We had a great time out at Camp Glory this past week. Pastor Jay Shepperd preached some wonderful messages that challenged not only the teens, but all that joined us for a summer revival. If you didn’t get a chance to attend the services, we encourage you to download, or listen to the messages on our media page! Due to some technical difficulties, not all of the messages are available. Also, the quality is not the greatest; but hey – it’s camp! Please take a moment to listen to the messages preached by Pastor Jay Shepperd, they are sure to bless your heart! We have also added a ton of pictures from out at camp to our camp photo album, and encourage you to enjoy some great photo’s from our Winter Wonderland.

Miracle Offering

Filed under: Church News — Tags: , — Church @ 2:14 PM

We would like to request your prayers for a special “Miracle Offering” to take place on Sunday, August 2, at the Landmark Baptist Church. This miracle offering is reminiscent of a similar offering taken in 1976 in which God miraculously met the financial needs of the church. Ever since, that offering has been known as the “Miracle Offering.” On August 2nd, the church has decided to do it again by having a second “Miracle Offering.” This offering is designed to meet some special needs of the Landmark Baptist Church and its ministries. The goal is set at $150,000! This would truly be a miracle to raise this amount during the summer.

This offering will be used for three projects. The first project will go to moving our radio antenna, and hopefully boost our signal power a little more than what we have now. Our radio signal area has not been as good as it used to be for some time now. We were leasing space on a radio tower until the owners decided to dismantle the tower. We then got authorization to place an antenna on the top of our college building on a temporary basis. We now have the opportunity to get on another tower, but this tower needs some work. The work can only be done by professionals and it will cost around $25,000.

The second project will be to refurbish our College’s Men’s Dorms. The Dorms have not been touched for ten years, and are in serious need of repair. We are praying the Lord will help us reach the estimated cost of $15,000 to fix-up these dorms, so that they can be used to house students as they study, and prepare for the ministry.

Our last project is the task of completing our new Gym at the High School. Due to some unforeseen restraints, we have been unable to complete the Gym as originally planned. We have been able to complete the concrete foundation, but are needing to get the walls up. Our first step is to build a metal frame for the building that will look much like our Pavilion out at the camp. Once that is in place we can work on placing the walls up. This first phase of raising the metal structure will cost us $110,000.

As you can see, the great cause of our Saviour creates a great need. Please pray and partner with us to make this goal happen. We are excited to see how the Lord will provide the funds necessary to help us meet this great challenge.

Teen Camp

Filed under: Church News — Tags: , , — Church @ 2:27 PM

We are excited about Teen Camp starting this next Monday, July 20th. Our theme this year is “Whiter than Snow”, and we are looking forward to enjoying some great “winter” activities here in the middle of Florida’s sunshine. This year Pastor Jay Shepherd, of Tri-City Baptist Church, in Port Charlotte, Florida, will be presenting the Word of God to our teenagers. We invite everyone to “bundle up” and come on out to our evening services, each night at 7:00 PM. Our camp is located just a few miles from our main auditorium; you can brave the back roads on your own, or catch the bus that will leave from the church parking lot each evening at 6:40 PM. If you would like more information about our camp, you may contact the church office at 863-422-2037. We look forward to enjoying a great summer revival with you out at Camp Glory!
