Community Outreach

Lilydale is a Church within the community. As such, we embrace the privilege of responding to the needs of the community and of serving as agents of change within it.


Saints With A Testimony, the Evangelism team of Lilydale First Baptist conducts street witnessing and outreach weekly in the surrounding community of the Church.

Each S.W.A.T. member has been trained and certified in Evangelism through the “Go Ye” Conferences of the Baptist General State Convention of Illinois.

Legal Counseling Ministry

Lilydale First Baptist provides free legal consultation, lawyer referral service, a quarterly law newsletter, and periodic seminars and workshops.

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program provides training based on biblical principles and practices led by Pastor Alvin Love. The training is conducted annually.

Lilydale currently has 10 volunteer mentors working with 30 students in the Christian Fenger High School. They use the T.A.L.K.S. (Transferring A Little Knowledge Systematically) Mentoring curriculum.
