Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church


Thank you for visiting our contributions page. The ministries of our church are many. They seek to address the spiritual, mental and physical needs of the people of our community.

Some of our ministries are led only by LABC staff and members and some involve partnerships with other trusted organizations. All are dependent on the financial support of our members and friends. Thus, I thank you for considering a contribution to our work. Your gift will help us embody the love of Jesus the Christ in ways that matter in the lives of others.

If you want to designate your gift to a specific program or ministry you must "add a note" of it on Paypal.
