This Sunday is the third Sunday of the month and that means Table Talk – fellowship and free lunch for everyone.

It’s also the last Sunday for Fall Futbol. Weather permitting, the kids will be showing off their new skills they’ve been learning the last four weeks out back behind The Meeting Place. And then later adults can join in for a church-wide soccer match! Dress appropriately if you want to play.


Our very own Paulo has volunteered to put on a free soccer clinic for the kids of IBC and their friends this fall and see what it might turn into next year!

For the next four Sundays (9/23, 9/30, 10/7, 10/14) after our worship service he will be teaching skills to the kids. Parents and other adults are welcome to come help out or fellowship on the sidelines.

Pack a lunch or grab some tacos and head over to Harrison Park by 1:00 PM. Please bring your own soccer ball if you have one.

It will culminate in a scrimmage held behind The Meeting Place after our next Table Talk on 10/21, which will hopefully turn into a church-wide game!

If you could reply to Paulo at soccer at uicarea dot com with how many kids you’ll be bringing and their ages as soon as possible that will help.

Volleyball is 4:00 PM this Sunday (7/9) at Arrigo Park! Come hang out and enjoy some ice cream and popsicles while you play a few friendly games.

Summer Volleyball in the park starts back up this Sunday. It will be every 2nd and 4th Sunday (unless it’s raining or under 50 degrees). It starts at 4:00 PM. This week it will be at the lot to the south of Arrigo Park just west of Racine. Invite friends and neighbors!

Just a reminder to make sure August 18-20 is on your calendar for the annual Immanuel Summer Retreat!

This year we will again be in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, but at a different site. It should be nice.

And our special guest speaker will be Paul Alexander, co-author of The Deliberate Church and a pastor in the Chicago suburbs

Lovely Ladies of Immanuel,

There will be a hot chocolate crawl this Saturday (2/11) at 10:00 AM. If you are interested or wanting to come let Madie know.

Hope to see you there!


Let’s brighten up the month of February by enjoying delicious meals together! If you are willing to host 6 people for dinner at your house any day this month, email koinonia at immanuel dash baptist dot net. The meal will be potluck style so you make the main dish and everyone else brings the sides. Use this as a chance to get to know some new faces and reconnect with old friends! We are hoping for 5 host houses so let us know ASAP!

Hello Church Family!

You are all invited to the 2016 IBC Christmas Party! The party will be on December 9th at 6:00 PM at The Meeting Place.

We will be having a potluck and IBC will be providing the primary meat and drinks.

If your last name begins with:

· A-H then bring a side dish to share

· I-Z then bring a baked good to share

We will be having a cookie exchange, so the A-H category is also welcome to bring a baked good if they feel so inclined 🙂

There will be singing, eating and much merriment so please join us!

See you soon!

IBC Women,

We will be having a Women’s Retreat on November 12th in Wheeling, IL. The retreat will start at 8:30 AM with a crepe bar breakfast (!) so you don’t want to be late :). Come enjoy a day of worship, prayer, fellowship, and discussions on how to practice discipleship in our everyday lives! The suggested donation will be $10 a person but don’t let that keep you from coming! All women are welcome. RSVP to koinonia at immanuel dash baptist dot net ASAP if you have not already. Hope to see you there!

This Sunday is the second Sunday of September. You know what that means – volleyball at Arrigo Park at 4:00 PM!
