All Councils Meeting — 24. February

Dear Leaders, Deacons, Ministry Council, and Committees:

On Sunday 24. February (after worship) we are holding an all-councils and committees meeting to facilitate cooperation, communication, and coordination of our work together in IBCB.  We will begin at 14:00 h and finish no later than 16:30 h.

We ask ALL MINISTRY TEAM leaders to identify and invite an “apprentice leader” – someone involved on your team who can be a second contact person and potential future leader – to join you for the afternoon.  If you need some suggestions, contact the church office (Scott or Ruth).

We will provide lunch for you and your family, then we will meet and do the following:

  • Focus on Our Mission and Vision:  Review Our Mission and Look at Our God Inspired Future

  • Present Our Disciple-Making Strategy:  Inspiration, Instruction, Involvement, Investment
  • Review Responsibilities and Roles:  Leaders, Deacons, Teams, Committees, and Officers
  • Clarify Lines of Communication and Decision Making
  • Present Finance Principles, Policies, and Procedures
  • Review Calendar and Ministry Plans for Next 3 Months (Bring ANY and ALL ministry plans for Mar – May

Thank you for serving our Lord through your ministry in our church.  I sincerely appreciate the sacrifices you make to further God’s Kingdom.  May God bless you for your faithfulness.

Scott Corwin, Pastor

 

24 Hours of Prayer — IBCB Prayer Chain

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord:

chain

Thank you very much for volunteering to take part in our 24 hours of prayer which will start this Saturday at 12 noon and will finish at Church from 11 am to 12 noon.   [Join the Prayer Ministry Team for this All-Church meeting for prayer!]

Please find here Specific Prayer Requests for 24 Hours of Prayer and  How to Spend One Hour in Prayer.     For those of you who are part of the “prayer chain,” the idea is that once you finish your hour you should call the next person who is to take over from you.  Don’t forget to call the next person in line once you have finished.

On behalf of our leaders and deacons of our church I want to thank you most sincerely for sacrificing your time to pray on behalf of our church and for the world.  May the Lord bless you richly.

Faith Kazembe, Deacon

Prayer Ministry Leader
