Back in 2012, our pastor, Frank Bennett, began asking God how he could make the most impact to God’s Kingdom. Frank had been serving as Worship Pastor at Cartersville First Baptist when he started this journey that would ultimately lead him to follow God’s call to pastor and plant a church. The question was where? Frank formed an advisory team of five pastors that would pray and counsel him during this transition. It was time to pray and watch to see where God was working in order to join Him.
Frank was introduced to a main developer of a sports complex being build in Bartow County, GA. This gentleman shared his vision for LakePoint Sports and Town Center. But he was even more passionate about reaching families with the Gospel. During this conversation, he asked Frank if he could start a church to meet on the property of this development. Little did he know, that Frank was watching for a clear word from God as to where to plant a church. God made it clear that Frank was to partner with this development and several churches to plant Lake Point Church in Emerson, GA.
After much prayer and support from others, Lake Point Church was launched on February 10, 2013. Frank and his family are not alone during this journey. Many people have come on board and have caught the vision.
What's next for us? We have recently purchased land in the city of Emerson, less than a mile from LakePoint Sports. We plan to build a community park on the land as well as a new church facility in the future!
The Bartow Baptist Association, the North American Mission Board, Georgia Baptist Convention, LakePoint Sports along with several churches, companies and individuals are happy to present this exciting church.
