Community Outreach

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, babtizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.” Mathew 28:19,20a

 

In order to fulfill the "Great Commission", Independent Baptist Church is working to build bridges into our community and activate many church members to carry out these ministry opportunities.  Some past outreach ministries have involved taking part in community events such as Riverfest, First Friday, parades, benefit programs and clean up projects along Merrill Parkway.  We have sponsored dessert concerts and Easter cantatas.  Church members have been involved in a tutoring program through the local high school and several people give of their time each week to minister in our local nursing facilities.  Recently, we held a Family Fun Day in order to meet and encourage the families of many of the children who participate in our children's ministries.  In addition, IBC has sent out adult mission teams to Alaska, Utah, the Bronx, NY and Arequipa Peru.
