Racers for Christ Garage

The First Baptist Church of Lady Lake is an active chapter of Racers for Christ (RFC). Team RFC is to see the world of motorsports impacted for Jesus Christ by individuals entering into a personal relationship with Him. The First Baptist Church of Lady Lake provides local discipleship and pastoral care to those involved with RFC without regards to whether or not they attend the church. We sponsor a monthly grill and cruise, and an annual sportsman's banquet and car show. If you have not been here recently, we urge you to plan a visit on a grill night or Sunday service and find a church where we are all part of God's family.
