Evangelical Baptist Church Plans Dedication of its new worship center

LACONIA —The Evangelical Baptist Church moved into their newly renovated worship center located on Washington Street in Lakeport on August 10 and is planning a dedication service on September 28.

Interim Pastor Lynn Kent welcomed over 200 members and friends to their new home. Services are currently being held on Sunday at 10 a.m.
This has been the second move for the church in less than one year. The church moved from their former Veterans Square location in downtown Laconia, on October 27, into the gymnasium, located on the Lakeport Campus. The first service at this location was on November 3. Services have been held in the gym for nine months to allow for the construction and renovations to the worship center.
A new entrance and elevator has been added to make the building accessible for all. The upper sanctuary has been re-furbished as well as the classrooms, media room, and the fellowship hall located on the lower level.
