Serve the City

STCOver the holidays, you can serve our less fortunate friends by providing them with toiletries, food, and winter clothing to bring some warmth in their life.

As part of Plaisirs de Servir, Serve the City is collecting items to fill 1000 gift-wrapped boxes for volunteers to assemble and distribute to those in need on 6 December on Saint-Nicholas.

IBC Christmas Weekend for the Persecuted Church

 

IBC Open Doors

 

We would like to thank all of you who have volunteered to contribute to the International Christmas Market which will be on the Saturday from 12:00 to 18:00.

If possible, we would like you to bring your items for the Market to IBC that Friday between 15:00 and 21:00 or on the Saturday morning from 9:00. If you are not able to bring items on either of these two days you can bring them this Sunday to the IBC church office (Please remember to give us an indication of how much we should sell your items for).

If you would still like to volunteer to help to sell products at the Market, we would be glad to have your help – please contact one of the co-ordinators or send an email to office[at]ibcbrussels.org.

IBC Christmas Weekend

Register Now – 8 November, Focus Day

focus day

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.

Please join us! Many people doing small things together can make a big difference!

From the Pastor’s Heart …

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.”

Register Now! – 11 October, Focus Day!

stc_logoMore than 100 people each month serve in Brussels on a STC Focus Day – now in 5 neighbourhoods 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 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. Currently we are 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!
