Lake St. Helen Baptist Church … Open and thriving

ST. HELEN – There has been a lot of talk about Lake St. Helen Baptist Church. We have heard rumors that the church is closing its doors, the church is not in existence anymore, the church was sold, and much more.

We want to let everyone know, the Lake St. Helen Baptist Church is alive and well. It is functioning as we always have been, and we are continuing to make many plans for the church’s future!

Pastor Jarib and his family were called away from us, but we keep in contact with them and enjoy all God is doing with them, as with any of our family that has had to move away.

Let me introduce our church officers;
