At Lazybrook Baptist Church, we have lots of different ministries to meet the wide variety of needs and interests of our diverse congregation and community. However, as different as each of our ministries may be, each one is wholly focused on one central purpose- sharing the gospel with those who don’t know Christ, and helping each of us fulfill God’s dreams for our lives.
“Smileville” is what we call our preschool area, because it is warm, loving, and active place! Children are divided developmentally until their third birthday when they begin to transition to school graded classes. The nursery area is full of fun toys and games, as well as wonderful volunteers! (Click arrow to read more)
On Wednesday nights at 6:15, P-K and Kindergarten children have a mission focus class called Mission Friends, where they learn about missionaries serving around the world.
The safety and security of our children is something we place special emphasis upon. Parents are asked to sign-in their child(ren) from 0 – K providing any special instruction or information necessary for the proper care of the child. All requests from parents are strictly observed and respected. Each child receives a name tag and parents of nursery age children receive a pager, which allows the nursery to communicate with parents if needed. Access to the nursery is controlled, and only the parent/adult who dropped the child off is allowed to pick them up. All nursery workers have radios to keep them in constant communication with security personnel and staff members on our campus. Each of our volunteers go through a strict background check, and follows a set of policies to ensure that our nursery remains a safe environment for children to enjoy.

Men’s Overflow is the Men’s Ministry at Lazybrook Baptist Church. However, it is not your typical “boy’s club” or just a group of guys that gathers to watch a ballgame. This is a ministry that is focused on engaging and serving every man at Lazybrook Baptist Church. We see it as a ministry to men, not a ministry of men. We have lots of different events throughout the year, aimed at engaging the variety of interests men have in our church. (Click arrow to read more)
Men’s Overflow also puts on one of the church’s largest events of the year- the annual Men’s Fish Fry. We transform the Fellowship Hall to look like a hunting/fishing expo, and always have plenty of amazingly good food and an engaging speaker to encourage and inspire us with God’s Word. There are always awesome door prizes and lots of laughs. This year, the Fish Fry will be on April 23, 2015 at 6:00pm. We hope that you will join us, and who knows, maybe you will win a free spot on our next fishing adventure. After all, we have to go catch the fish before we can fry them!

The greatest opportunity is our Sunday morning worship service. Our worship service consists of a variety of musical styles along with prayer times and hearing from God’s Word. We are lead in worship by our Praise Team and Choir. The Lazybrook Choir is made up of men and women of all ages, who all share a passion for praising God through songs! The Choir not only leads during our regular worship services, but also for special musicals during Christmas and Easter. The Music Ministry also has opportunities to serve behind the scenes through our Audio/Visiual Team, who run all the technology for our worship services.
Our goal is to provide a positive experience that promotes musical and spiritual growth for each member of the family of God. Let us exalt His name together!
Here at Lazybrook, we have a strong tradition of being dedicated to Missions.

We also engage in many mission trips throughout the year. We consistently partner with One Mission Ministries in Matamoros, Mexico.

The Prayer Ministry also has several points throughout the year where we place special emphasis upon prayer. We will sometimes bring in a guest speaker for Sunday Morning Worship to challenge us with new and exciting ways to pray. Our annual Church Revival Week is often focused on encouraging members to be people of prayer. We also have a special event during the National Day Of Prayer every year, where we walk the neighborhoods around our church praying for people as opportunities arise, and praying for our community the whole time!
