Our church members work to serve people of our Owego NY community, both in practical and spiritual ways. We worked with the Red Cross during 2 of our large area floods to help people recover from these disasters, get meals and water, and find peace with God in the process. LWBC is actively involved in the Haven of Rest Ministry in Downtown Owego, under the leadership of Pastor Bobby Harris.
LWBC supports the Central New York Baptist Association and gives to mission endeavors that are located in Central New York. A variety of new church plants, local missions, and outreaches have been a central focus of our association efforts.
LWBC is directly involved in ministries in India and in Peru, and many other foreign countries, One of our own pastors and his wife, Rick & Donna Martin, are serving as full time church planters in Ayacucho, Peru. Our Associate Pastor, Lary Hyde, is the Northeast Region 3 Mass Feeding Coordinator and we are actively involved in supporting this disaster relief ministry in North America.
Our members take several mission trips throughout the year to locations including Puerto Rico, Dominica, St. Croix, Peru, & India. Our desire is for our missions focus to be both locally and around the world.
As a Southern Baptist Church, LWBC actively participates in missions through the Cooperative Program. In giving to these mission initiatives, we support over 3,500 North American Missionaries through the North American Mission Board and over 3,500 International Missionaries through the International Mission Board.
