UPDATE 1 - March 13: IBCB Updates for March 14
– March 22, 2020
We know the Lord’s work will
continue in the midst of these times. In fact, we know that difficult times
cause many people to turn to God. It is a good season for us to remember
the words of Peter:
“…but in your hearts honor Christ
the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks
you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and
respect…” 1 Peter 3:15 (ESV)
As we are diligent with our health
concerns, may we be equally diligent to show compassion and the Good News of
Christ to others during these days.
Please join us as we:

situation and stage of life, remember to keep reaching out to others.
Don’t allow physical isolation to unduly hinder spiritual and emotional

concerns. Connecting for a brief phone call makes a big difference.
