SuNday School
The best way to get connected with other seniors at LBC is through the Sunday School.  We have seven different Sunday School classes that most senior adults attend plus some short term elective classes.  These are excellent choices for you.
Music
Heartsong Choir and Hand-Chimes offers senior adults opportunities to minister with their musical talents.
Singles
Senior Singles are a vital part of all Lasting Legacy events. Some special activities are planned for singles throughout the year.
Fellowship
Monthly Pot-Luck Luncheons are scheduled the first Monday of each month with interesting programs.  There are major events scheduled throughout the year just for senior adults.  Our Sunday School classes have socials that provide fellowship in a more intimate setting.
Travel
We provide opportunities for travel throughout the year.  Seniors enjoy visiting places of interest to Christians and attending Christian Conferences with their friends.

Edmond Thomas

Edmond joined the staff at Lenexa Baptist Church in January 2007 as Senior Adult Pastor. He came to Lenexa after 41 years in pastoral ministry in Kansas, Colorado and Illinois.

He went to Chicago, Illinois to study at the Moody Bible Institute where he graduated from the Pastor’s Course in 1964. His Bachelor of Science Degree was earned from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas in 1995.

Edmond’s wife Karen is a retired church secretary. Edmond and Karen have been married since 1964. They have four children; a son who is a pastor in Wisconsin, two daughters who live in Kansas City, Kansas, and one daughter who lives in Springfield, Missouri. They have thirteen grandchildren.

As a result of Christian parents, a Baptist Church, and a Child Evangelism class Edmond trusted Christ as his personal Savior and Lord when he was 6-years-old. God called him to be a pastor during his junior year of high school.

Edmond has a pastor’s heart and enjoys ministering with senior adults. His favorite scripture is Lamentations 3:22–23:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”
