I’m sure by now you've all heard about the latest executive order Governor Abbott issued requiring everyone in the state of Texas 10 years old and up to wear a face-covering in public places. Thankfully, he has once again graciously provided an exemption for churches. You do not have to wear a mask at church but wearing one is strongly encouraged so let your conscience b...Keep Reading

This past week, the first deaths related to Covid-19 were recorded for Montgomery County. Hospitals across several US cities are working overtime to care for their patients. Medical workers are being recognized as heroes for their sacrificial service. And while recovery numbers increase, the spread of the Coronavirus continues across America. Return to “normal life” still seems so distant....
In light of the current, global pandemic, it’s important for us to realize that not all concern is sinful. My hope is that this article will challenge us to foster the right kind of concern and motivate the right kind of action. To accomplish this, let’s begin by examining how the Bible talks about worry....
Before Jesus endured such prayers as would turn sweat to blood, before He was abandoned by His disciples, before He endured the many humiliations and beatings on the way to the cross, and faced the full weight of God’s wrath to atone for sin culminating with the cry ““MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?”, Jesus sang hymns....
Paul himself was a great example of what it looks like to rejoice no matter what. He remained joyful when was persecuted, slandered, falsely accused, mistreated, arrested, imprisoned, and even when he was facing the threat of martyrdom for the cause of Christ. Nothing could steal his joy because he was convinced that all the difficult circumstances he experienced ultimately served to advance the cause of Christ (cf. Col. 1:24)....
C.S. Lewis discovered that no matter how hard you try it is impossible to escape God. You can deny Him, ignore Him, or explain Him away, but you can’t get away from Him. He’s everywhere. No matter where we turn we are confronted with the reality of His being. God has made it abundantly clear that He is there by revealing Himself in four unmistakable ways....
At the end of the summer, it’s not not uncommon for Christians to feel distant from the Lord and dry in their soul. During the summer months we typically get out of our normal schedules and routines, we go on vacations, things are generally more laid back, and it’s easy to become lazy. This naturally affects our spiritual disciplines. Our time spent communing with God in His Word and prayer often becomes sporadic and in some cases non-existent....
By God’s grace, since reopening our weekly services/ministries we know of no one in our church who has tested positive for COVID-19. Nevertheless, in light of the recent surge of cases in Texas, especially in our neighboring counties, and our Governor pausing his original reopening plan, we want to be as wise and diligent as possible in continuing to follow the recommend...Keep Reading
It has been such a joy and a blessing for us to be able to gather together again in person on Sunday mornings. Our first two Sundays back we have sought to provide a safe, comfortable environment for those who have decided to return to our church campus. We had originally reserved the Worship Center for our at-risk folks but since only a handful of people used that space t...Keep Reading
I want to say “thank you” to all those who worked behind the scenes to provide a healthy, safe, and "as normal as possible" environment for our first Sunday back. I also want to commend all of you for the sincere enthusiasm you demonstrated being together again while at the same time being sensitive and deferring to one another as you greeted and interacted with each o...Keep Reading

The Pastors/Elders met this week to prayerfully consider what would be the wisest course of action for reopening LBC. After weighing the spiritual benefits for our church and our community versus the health risks that are still in play and the social distancing guidelines that are still in place, we unanimously agreed that it would be best to slowly and carefully phase thi...Keep Reading
I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the Montgomery County Judge has ordered everyone to stay at their place of residence except for essential activities through April 12 and the President has extended the federal guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic until April 30. Thankfully, we live in a country and a county that views the ministry of churches as essential and have all...Keep Reading

Yesterday morning the LBC Elders met to pray and discuss how we can best minister to the members of our church and community in the midst of the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic. God was gracious to allow us to gather together publicly this past Sunday with some slight modifications to our service and we had originally planned to do the same thing this coming Sunday. How...Keep Reading

We often hear Christians urging other Christians to pray for revival or a spiritual awakening in our country, particularly in light of its moral decline. While God does command us in His Word to pray for our nation and its leaders (cf. 1 Tim. 2:1-2), all the references in the Bible to "revival" are in the context of God's people both individually and corporately (cf. 2 Chr...Keep Reading
When Paul wrote to the believers in Rome, he addressed the subject of God’s judgment and strongly encouraged them not to “think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience” but to recognize that “the kindness of God leads...to repentance” (Romans 2:4)...Keep Reading
S. M. Lockridge, a Texas-born preacher was well-known for his sermon It’s Friday…But Sunday’s Coming! In his classic cadence, he went on for an hour and half contrasting the suffering, pain, and loss of Christ’s death on Friday with the victory, joy, and hope that came as a result of Christ’s resurrection on Sunday....Keep Reading
