A note from Phillip Martin (received Sunday, July 18)
Happy Sunday Funday,

Sorry I did not get the results of yesterday’s blood drive to you sooner.
Yesterday was a grand day and we went from 9-10 units last time to 24 units this time!!
Proving what a great location, this is.

This is shared success, and I am grateful for the church.
By the blood we are saved and now we take that literally.
I would share this at church today, but I am off to another blood drive.

Sanctuary for All


Friday, July 23
5 PM Eastern

This workshop will be presented in English with Spanish interpretation.

Register for this workshop!


Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church renewed our identity as a Sanctuary Congregation in 2017. In so doing, we have been able to embrace Biblical commands to love the immigrant and welcome our neighbor in new and powerful ways, specifically through education, advocacy, accompaniment and supporting freedom campaigns. This workshop will share the work we’ve been doing, as well as ways for your congregation to engage in the work of sanctuary – work that is healing, restorative and profoundly needed.
