Local Outreach

Bus Ministry

For over 50 years, LDBC has provided Sunday transportation for hundreds of people. Each Sunday, 14 buses transport an average of 200 riders to and from Sunday School. Anyone age 4 and older may attend. Over one million riders have ridden the bus to Lavon Drive with thousands trusting Christ. Many former bus kids are now serving as adults in the ministry of LDBC as well as churches around the world.

Since it’s creation in 2018, Lavon Drive Baptist Church has helped to support Grace Center Texas in its mission to “provide quality dental care and compassionately minister hope to the indigent and underserved in our surrounding Dallas area communities.”

Good Samaritans of Garland, “Good Sam,” was formed in 1983, from an alliance of several Garland faith communities with the intent to provide centrally-located services for neighbors in need of assistance. In 2016, the Board of Directors elected to narrow Good Sam’s assistance to providing food with kindness and compassion to our hungry and food-insecure neighbors living in Garland, Rowlett, and Sachse.
