Under LBAC’s current plan to limit gatherings, we want to provide a comprehensive worship experience for you to experience on your own, with your family, or your Growth Group. Below you will find the links to our YouTube Channel where all of our services will now be located.
If you have any issues with any of the links, please contact our office.
If you are interested in previous Sunday sermons, links to those can still be found at the bottom of this page.

WORSHIP IN GIVING
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden,” Jesus declared in Matthew 5:14. This morning, as you pray and ask God to open your heart to how he might use you and your gifts in this unique time to show His love to others.
WAYS TO GIVE
Because of the cancellation of our church services, we would like to offer you 3 convenient ways to continue supporting LBAC through your financial gifts and offerings as you and your family worship from home:
1. Go to the GIVE section of our website at www.lbac.org and select the GIVE ONLINE NOW button. There you can sign up with easyTithe, our online giving provider, for one-time donations each week. For your convenience, you can even set up recurring donations so no matter where you are, you won’t have to worry about your weekly giving.
2. Give to LBAC through our PayPal account, www.paypal.me/longbeachalliance. Just follow the link here or type it in your browser and log in to your account. In the note section, you can write where you’d like the funds to be designated.
3. For those who don’t like to use technology, there is always the option of mailing a check to the office or dropping it off at the church. There is a heavy duty mail slot on the door to the left of the main office door. We’ll get it and deposit it.
Easy peasy. Three ways to continue giving while you worship from home. Let’s make the most of the situation we’re in and continue worshipping and glorifying our Father in Heaven.

Save lives. Give Blood.
Alliance Youth Charity Golf Tournament, September 11
Growth Groups, Creatively Ongoing
With the evermore restrictive guidelines on gathering together, there are a lot of growth groups that have taken to social media, and other technologies, to still meet as a growth group. Programs such as Facebook Groups, Zoom, and Google Hangouts have proven to be an effective way to gather together, share what the Lord has been up to in your life, and to still enjoy the sight of each other’s beautiful faces.
We are still figuring out how all of this works, but if you are not sure where to begin, please contact your growth group leader or our office and we’ll try and get you pointed in the right direction.
Youth Group, High School & Junior High, Online
We have moved all of our weekly youth gatherings online with the help of YouTube Live and Zoom.
Pastor Jesse streams a live Youth Group every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7PM for anyone to join (high school, junior high, friends, family, parents, neighbors, CDC officials). Jesse gives away coffee, plays games and includes some worship and a lesson. Then the group moves to a zoom meeting afterwards to check-in with one another and discuss the lesson.
Awana will not be meeting in person for now, but we don’t want that to keep you from moving forward in your books and continuing to learn those verses! Please check your email or contact your awana club director for instructions on how you can recite your verses.
