Volunteering at North Raleigh Ministries – Saturdays, Bimonthly

At LBC, we strive to give back to our community in any ways we can. It is the people around us that have kept us at the corner of Leesville Church Rd and Leesville Road for over 140 years. One of our regular volunteer opportunities is helping to support the Thrift Store at the North Raleigh Missions. The proceeds benefit homeless people by providing food, clothing, and shelter. Email Dianne at wmu@nullleesvillebaptist.com for more information.

April Missions: Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

During this season of Lent, we’re collecting for Annie Armstrong North America Missions. We see so many images of people suffering outside the US that we forget there are children and families right next door to us that need our help. The Annie Armstrong offering benefits people in the US and Canada. You can learn more on the official website at http://www.anniearmstrong.com/fast_facts.asp/.
