BEYOND 15,000

Beyond 15,000 is the new name for everything we do with missions here at FBCL. We want to mobilize everyone in this congregation to go BEYOND our address at 15,000 First Baptist Lane and be on mission in your community, this region, and even across the world. We’ve designated Sunday, December 3rd as Beyond 15,000 Sunday. Our worship services that day will be focused on what we are already doing in missions and how you can play a role.


Starting Point is a class for anyone who wants to move beyond just attending to connecting meaningfully with FBCL. Attending Starting Point will help you understand the role of the local church in your life and what role you can play in the life of a local church. Check our website for the next Starting Point class date.
