Round Up Sunday is always a great time, and this year was no exception! We had a wonderful time enjoying our western-themed Sunday. Most of our folks dressed up in their western duds, and we got quite a few good shots of ‘em. We encourage you to take the tame to gander at our photo gallery and see what great fun we had! If you missed it this year – make sure you won’t be a stray calf next Round Up Sunday!
Howdy partner! We hope all you buckaroos and cowgirls are ready to rustle up your gear for Round Up Sunday! This November the eighth dust off all your western duds for a rootin’ tootin’ time out at the ole Landmark Corral. We will be kicking back and relaxing to some great ole fashioned preaching and singing at meeting time 10 AM. So pony up, grab your lasso and help us round up a few strays for this years Round Up Sunday.
Starting November 7th is a new round of Senior Patriots! We encourage all senior citizens to join in a great program designed specifically for them. This years program includes great food, exciting entertainment, and challenging preaching from the Word of God. Special trip opportunities will be announced throughout the year as well. The meetings start each Saturday morning at 10 AM and are located in the Landmark Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall. So join Senior Patriots for your dosage of the three M’s - a great Meal, soul stirring Music, and a Message from God’s Word!
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.

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.
