This weekend IBC is planning on a weekend together at Streator Baptist Camp! So…

  • We’re having our Sunday service at Streator—so don’t come to The Meeting Place; come to the camp if you can, even if it’s just for Sunday.
  • Prayer meeting is cancelled—but be in prayer that our time together will serve to strengthen our faith in Christ.

As we have mentioned, we will be having Dane Ortlund speaking on his recent book Defiant Grace: The Surprising Message and Mission of Jesus.  Dane serves as Senior Editor in the Bible Division at Crossway Books in Wheaton, Illinois. He is the author of A New Inner Relish: Christian Motivation in the Thought of Jonathan Edwards and is a graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary (M.Div., Th.M.) and Wheaton College (B.A., Ph.D.). Dane is married, has three boys, and lives in Wheaton.  You can follow him on Twitter @daneortlund.

If you’ve never been to an Immanuel Summer Retreat before, you’ve got to go watch this promo video for the camp where it’s held!  The video shows what the facilities are like and also showcases our church –


This coming Saturday in Wheaton, IL. Braden Koenigsberg is having a pottery and woodturning sale open to the public. Anyone interested is welcome to drop by even just for a visit. It should be running from 10:00 AM till 4:00 PM.
