Welcome to Lycoming Valley Baptist Church (LVBC)
LVBC is a community of believers in Jesus Christ who are banded together to build God's kingdom. That's our simple mission in north central Pennsylvania and around the world. You are always welcome as one of our guests! No matter what stage of life you or your family is currently in, you will probably even discover new friends among us. We're not perfect, but we do love people. When it comes to God's mission for us, our methods are simple. We proclaim the gospel of Jesus, serve God together, worship Him together, teach the Bible, and grow in relationships with God and each other. While we gather all around the area as small groups in homes, we also have a beautiful building conveniently located just off of Interstate 180 on Lycoming Mall Drive. We meet on Sunday mornings and evenings, as well as many other times throughout the week in our Small Groups. No matter who you are, you're invited to worship along with us!
Join us for the early summer session
Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm
April 6th thru May 11th
Summertime is filled with sunshine, picnics at the lake, special outings, family vacations and celebrations. But it is also a time when disruptions in the normal routine can make it difficult to stay committed to healthy living. Fit and Healthy Summeris designed to help First Place 4 Health members and participants stay on course through their journey toward a balanced life.
This six-week Bible study includes Scripture memory cards, six weeks of Live It Trackers and Prayer Partner forms, a leader's discussion guide for group study and two weeks of menu plans and grocery lists...plus, a special "Summertime Helps" section to help readers deal with the unique temptations of the season! A rejuvenating, adventure-filled vacation begins with the choice of a destination, and the same is true of a healthy, well-balanced life.

What Is First Place 4 Health?
The First Place 4 Health program is the result of a godly desire placed in the hearts of a group of Christians in Houston, Texas, in 1981. Their desire was to establish a Christ-centered weight-control program that addressed all areas of life—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. You can learn more about the organization at their website.
The resulting program is designed as three 12-week sessions per year—winter, spring and fall. Members stay with the same group for an entire session, encouraging and challenging one another to meet their fitness goals. Each weekly group meeting includes a weigh-in, nutritional information, class discussion, Bible study discussion and prayer.
Why Choose First Place 4 Health?
Maybe you are struggling with losing 5 to 10 pounds or are battling obesity. Perhaps you want to increase your knowledge about nutrition, to get help with implementing a consistent exercise plan or to learn how to develop a healthy lifestyle for your family. Whatever your reasons, you'll soon discover that First Place 4 Health is a biblically based, medically trustworthy wellness program that addresses the whole person—physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
