Big Volunteer Week
Another Big Volunteer Week on the way!
We are getting ready for yet another wonderful Big Volunteer Week! This year, it will centre around the six groups of need in the city on which Serve the City focuses, namely: people who are homeless, people who are asylum seekers, people who are elderly, people with disabilities, children in need, victims of abuse. Form next week all the way up until the Big Volunteer Week, we will talk about each of the six groups.
Please support our 11th annual Big Volunteer Week!
VBS is Vacation Bible School, which is organized jointly by the International Baptist Church of Brussels (IBC)
and St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Tervuren.
Monday – Friday, 17 – 21 August, 2015
10:00 – 14:00
Lange Eikstraat 76-78
Further details here.
More than 100 people each month serve in Brussels on Focus Day – now in 5 neighbourhoods around the city.
We call it Focus Day because we want to see more clearly the needs of asylum seekers, the disabled, the homeless, the elderly, and victims of abuse. We partner with local social-profit associations serving people in need and create projects in which volunteers can get involved.
But we also want to see our neighbourhoods more clearly. Where do we see beauty in our neighbourhoods? Where do we see brokenness? Attention is action! Each project is a part of a neighbourhood group of projects. We are currently active in the Marolles, Ste Catherine, Schaerbeek, Ixelles, and Etterbeek. More neighbourhoods to come!
Choose a neighbourhood and then a project. The day begins with an optional time of prayer. Then there is registration and a briefing for all volunteers, after which volunteers go to their projects. The day concludes with a debrief.
Please join us! Many people doing small things together can make a big difference!
PS. Serve the City is looking for French speakers willing to help with beginners lessons for adults every Tuesday or Thursday. The lessons start at 19:00 until 21:00, if interested please contact Esteban.
Dear IBC Family,
I am blessed beyond anything I deserve to be set apart to study God’s Word for preaching Sunday by Sunday. In it all I face a danger – and so do you! We can become so accustomed to Jesus can’t we that we may think that while others need to know Him more, we not so much perhaps as we have been on the road with Him for a while? God forbid! If we settle for a Christianity that stays as it is, that seeks to make Jesus more like us than to be more like Him, then we will end up more like the lukewarm Laodiceans than those who should be white-hot with zeal for Jesus and the gospel. John Piper says “Desire that your life count for something great! Long for your life to have eternal significance. Want this! Don’t coast through life without a passion.”
