Join us on 24 May for this month’s Focus Day! – If you haven’t already done so, REGISTER HERE: www.servethecity.be/brussels/volunteer/big-volunteer-week/#register
More than 100 people each month serve in Brussels on a STC Focus Day – now in 5 neighborhoods around the city.
We call it a Focus Day because we want to see more clearly the needs of people who are homeless, asylum seekers, disabled, elderly, children in need, 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 neighborhoods more clearly. Where do we see beauty in our neighborhoods? Where do we see brokenness? Attention is action! Each project is a part of a neighborhood group of projects. Currently we are active in the Marolles, Ste Catherine, Schaerbeek, Ixelles, and Etterbeek.
Choose a neighborhood and then a project. The day begins (12h30) with an optional time of prayer. Then there is registration and a briefing (13h00) for all volunteers, after which volunteers go to their projects. The day concludes with a debrief. This month registration is at Epee, rue de l’Epée 8, 1000 Brussels.
Dear IBC Family & Friends,
I would like to have a few minutes to share with you about the 7 runners for the Heroes Race and ask you to visit the fundraising website: http://www.alvarum.com/group/ibcbrusselsasbl so that everyone can support our race runners. You will find that all of the runners are listed and if you click on a person’s name it will take you to his or her page and you can donate to that person.
Thank you for your cooperation and God bless,
1 Corinthians 12:25-27 =>”that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. -If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.- Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.”
Songs for this Sunday’s Worship Service:
- How Great Thou Art
- It Is Well, With My Soul
- 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)
- Create in Me a Clean Heart

SERMON: ‘Getting to the Heart of Emotions!’
Psalm 28:6-7; Luke 10:17-20
Since emotions are part of everyday life, how should we handle our emotions in a way that pleases God?
