We will have one more opportunity to complete our annual Children’s Ministry Training on Saturday, June 22nd at 9:30 a.m. This is the last training session before VBS. We will update Child Safety requirements that are mandatory to participate in Children’s Ministry at BIBC. If you are interested in this Ministry but are unable to attend this training, or if you have any questions, please contact Mary Jordan 910-846-2042.
We will be starting a new Tuesday Night Bible Study starting March 19th at 6:30 pm. If you would like to join this group, contact Pastor Rudy.
The Discipleship Class 1: Becoming Disciples though Bible Study will begin this fall with classes on Tuesdays twice a month. This series will be in a new format designed for busy adults as it journeys us though all books of the Bible. Graduates of the program are encouraged to come and mentor classmates as we find fresh insights into Scripture. If you are interested in joining the class or have questions, please contact Doreen.
Please prayerfully consider 4 persons to sit on the Deacon Body. You may place your nominations in the drop box provided throughout the month of July. A list of eligible members will be on the bulletin board outside Pastor Rudy’s office. Also on that board will be a copy of the relevant Bylaws explaining the process. However, we ask that you keep these very important characteristics required in our Bylaws in mind when selecting your nominees: “The essential element needed is that of a godly character. Deacons must be willing to make the necessary time commitments to fulfill their responsibilities and must demonstrate support of the church. Only members who are at least 21 years of age and have belonged to the church for a period of one (1) year may serve as deacons.” The following exiting deacons are not eligible for nomination this year: Dave Adams, David Blankenship, Mary Jordan, and Scott Hinkle. We thank these decons for their commendable service to BIBC.
