Lawrenceville Community Church

Welcome Home

A Safe Space to Build Relationships & Explore Your Faith

Welcome to Lawrenceville Community Church! As a congregation deeply rooted in our community, we are committed to serving and uplifting those around us through meaningful actions and heartfelt worship.

Our church is more than just a place of prayer; it’s a vibrant community where individuals and families of all backgrounds find a welcoming space to explore faith, form lasting friendships, and engage in acts of love and service. With about 30 devoted members, we cherish the close-knit atmosphere that allows us to truly connect with one another.

We believe in the power of service and giving back, as reflected in our various community initiatives. From hosting a monthly food pantry to organizing annual school supply drives, and from supporting local nonprofits to spreading joy during community events, our actions are guided by the principle of loving our neighbors as ourselves, as taught in Matthew 22:37-40.

Our traditional worship services, held every Sunday at 10:30 AM, are a blend of prayer, inspiring sermons, and hymn singing, lasting about an hour. We welcome you to join us for these services, followed by a time of fellowship over coffee and snacks. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.

At Lawrenceville Community Church, we embrace diversity and inclusivity. We welcome everyone, regardless of age, race, ability, sexuality, or any other differences. Our doors are open to all who seek a safe space to nurture their faith and join a community of care and support.

Join us in our journey of faith, service, and community. Together, let’s make a difference in the world, one act of kindness at a time.

Meet Your Lawrenceville Pastors

Pastor Emeritus Art Thibeault

Pastor Art has served at Lawrenceville Community Church for over 25 years. During that time, he also served as Chaplain (now retired) at Ohio Correctional Facilities, as well as being a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children. Art received his Master of Divinity at Bangor (Maine) Theological Seminary in 1989 and was ordained by the United Church of Christ. Art’s passion for historical biblical and theological studies, and always asking “why," makes him a teacher more than a preacher. He continues to study and engage in in-depth theological book discussions. A U.S. Army veteran, Art enjoys traveling with Nancy, his wife, taking meandering road trips, and spending time with his children, grandchildren, horses, and dogs.

What do we Believe?

And what is a Community Church?

Lawrenceville Community Church is a congregational church, and a member of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC). Congregational churches are unique, because they have the autonomy to decide how to best live out their faith in their local community. All major decisions are made democratically by our members, ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard and valued. Our association with the NACCC reinforces our dedication to a diverse and inclusive approach to faith, allowing for a wide range of theological beliefs and interpretations within our congregation. It also connects us with a broader community of like-minded churches, enabling us to participate in larger missions, share resources, and engage in mutual support. Being part of the NACCC is integral to our identity as a church that embraces individual freedom in faith while fostering a strong sense of fellowship and collective purpose within our community and beyond.

What does that mean for you? Regardless of your age, race, sexuality, or ability, you are welcome here. There is no pressure to subscribe to a specific set of beliefs or act in a certain way. If you’re willing to be a part of a welcoming community, you will find a home in this space. If you wish to explore a connection with a loving creator, and you want to put your faith into action by loving your neighbors – this is the place for you! We hope you’ll consider joining us on Sunday morning at 10:30am. There is no dress code, no expectations – just come as you are!
