“What On Earth Am I Here For?” Small Groups

What On EarthAn integral part of our six-weeks experience takes place in small groups.  During worship we inspire through instruction; in small groups we implement the truths through involvement.  I encourage you to “get connected” to a small group during these next weeks to get the most out of our “What On Earth Am I Here For?” campaign.

Look through the list of existing groups below.  Identify a day, location, or life stage that fits your schedule.  Email smallgroups@ibcberlin.org or call the church office, tell us which group you want to connect with and we’ll get you connected with the group.

If you don’t find a group that fits your schedule … start your own!  Go through the study with your spouse or a couple of friends.  Pick up a study guide, ask for a link to the video sessions, and get started!  We’ll offer you support and encouragement on your small group journey!

Here are our existing groups:

  • Sundays, 15:00-16:30 h @ IBCB (Kirschstein)
  • Mondays, Men’s Group, 19:00-21:00 h @ Steglitz-Haus Nazareth (Stednitz)

ReFresh: Higher ‘n Higher — Our Identity

refreshEvery decision we make at IBCB is an expression of our IDENTITY.  Who are we?  What is our purpose, mission, vision, and values?

The following is one attempt to helps us identify ourselves.  Are these true of us?  Why?  Why not?  Do we have consensus?  Are we in alignment?

Our Kingdom Concept:  IBCB exists to glorify God and make disciple-making followers of Jesus Christ by multiplying relational connections between people and God’s purpose in Jesus, the church, and God’s world.

Tagline:  Get Connected!logo_on_light_image_only

Slogan:  Connecting people to Jesus, one another, and God’s world!

Our Logo:

  • Cross — Jesus Christ is central to our life together.
  • Community — Our diversity in unity shows itself in our love for one another.
  • Commission — Sharing Jesus’ love with God’s world is our service of worship.

In response to our ReFresh: Higher ‘n Higher strategic study, IBCB’s leaders are recommending to the church a change in job description and increase in hours for Jürgen Ferrary.  During the next few weeks, you will see survey results and read a number of articles that have led to this recommendation.  In addition, you will have opportunity to participate in a number of “church family conversations” designed to help us find consensus regarding God’s will in the matter for our life together in IBCB.

Important Dates for Your Agenda:

  1. June: Church Family Conversation (After Worship, 14:00 h)
  2. July: Church Family Business Meeting (After Worship, 14:00 h)
