Lighthouse Baptist Church has ministries and activities for the entire family. With ministries for infants, children, teens, and adults, you're sure to find that there is something in which you can be involved. Take a look at the descriptions below, and click the "Got questions?" button to find out more information about each. Also, keep an eye on our events calendar for special,
one-time ministry opportunities to come.
Children enjoy each and every Sunday! Kids who are older than creche age start the service with the adults before being dismissed to age-specific classes. Each week, the children enjoy a Bible story with Pastor Sam before heading off to enjoy a class with a lesson and activities just for them! With a pre-schoolers class, and a primary class, your child will love their experience! It's not at all uncommon for Pastor Sam to be found with a bag of lollies afterwards!
Preschool ages: 18 months - 4 years
Primary ages: 5 years - 11 years
We love our ladies at Lighthouse! Ladies ministry includes multiple get-togethers and activities throughout the year, plus a retreat down to Ashburton every March. If you are a lady in need of some good friendship or Biblical help, please feel free to reach out to us!
We are so thankful for the wonderful Chinese people whom God has brought to our church. Currently, our Chinese believers participate in their very own Bible study during our Friday Night Bible School, as well as a Chinese worship service on Sunday! We welcome any and all Chinese visitors who would like to learn more!
Staffed by loving members of our church family, the infant creche is offered at every Sunday service. Babies will be lovingly cared for while you enjoying the singing and preaching in the adult service. Should your baby need you specific attention, creche workers will come and get you! Rest assured your baby is in good hands!
Ages: Newborn - 18 months
We have a great group of teens who regularly attend Lighthouse! Teens enjoy the service with the adults on Sunday, and then have a Bible study of their own during our Friday Night Bible School. Additionally, teens enjoy regular SNAC's (Sunday Night After Church) with Pastor Sam, fun activities, and an annual trip into the mountains for youth camp with other South Island churches.
The men of Lighthouse are godly men who desire to love and lead their families according to the Word of God. To sharpen and strengthen one another, we gather for Men's Prayer Breakfasts every so often. And while there is a Men & Boys Camping trip on the schedule for November, odds are some of the men will be heading out for a fish pretty soon! For men who are seeking good friendships, Lighthouse is the place!
