Lighthouse Deaf Baptist Church is a place for the Deaf, Deaf/Blind, Hard of Hearing, hearing, and anyone else looking for a church to worship the Lord with us. Our services are preached in American Sign Language and voiced either by our Pastor as he preaches or by a voice interpreter. If you are looking for the answers to life’s questions, God has them for you in His Word in which it will guide and encourage you as you seek Him for those answers. It is our hope and prayers that the services at Lighthouse Deaf Baptist Church will be a blessing to you and we meet you soon.
When are the services?
On Sunday, we meet at 1:00 PM for Sunday School, then following our Sunday School, starting at 2:15 PM, we have our church services. We meet in the afternoon since the hearing church the building which allows us full use of building. Then on Thursdays, our mid week Prayer/Bible Study This service begins at 7:00PM with singing and praising God, then our Bible Study at 7:20PM. We meet in the same building now.
I’m not Deaf, may I still attend?
Yes. You are more than welcome to attend the services. Our church is not a “closed” church to the hearing. Our congregation is primarily Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Hearing who know sign language. The services are preached in American Sign Language (ASL), yet voiced by our Pastor or a voice interpreter. You do not need to know ASL to attend the Lighthouse.
What can I wear to church?
Our goal is not to argue about a dress code or what you wear or don’t wear. Our Pastor and staff dress professionally for they want to honor the Lord in their service, yet, we have never turned away a member or visitor because of their attire. We want you to feel comfortable in our services. Come as you are.
I have Deaf children. Can they attend too?
Your children, Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or hearing are always welcomed. We have a nursery for the babies, a children’s class for the older kids, and of course, adult classes for you. Our nursery is staffed with only qualified, Pastor approved workers. No child is left alone to take care of themselves. You can feel safe with your child in our hands.
I have other questions, who can I ask?
That we believe is the most important question because we know that we cannot answer everything here on our website, but we know that our Pastor and or staff would be willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you feel that you need to talk with the Pastor privately, he is willing to take the time and talk with you, or set up an appointment to talk with you. You are the reason we are here, to share the love of God and the Gospel with you so that the Deaf may see the Gospel.
