PRELUDE – “Higher Throne” by Kings Kaleidoscope


Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.

Song –

Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against You
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved You with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of Your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in Your will,
and walk in Your ways,
to the glory of Your Name.


ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Romans 10:9-13

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord

and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For with the heart one believes and is justified,

and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

For the Scripture says,

“Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek;

for the same Lord is Lord of all,

bestowing his riches on all who call on him.

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Hi Everyone!

Just as a reminder: The Meeting Place Spring Cleaning will be starting tomorrow around 9:00 AM (Prayer Meeting is at 8:00 AM; Worship Team will be rehearsing from 9:00 to 10:00 AM)!

We will want to do our normal cleaning duties and hit a few things that needed touch up and repair as well as deep cleaning.

These areas include touching up stains in the carpet, dusting places that normally do not get cleaned, washing all of the glass windows, organizing the shelves & closets, cleaning the coffee area, the visitors center, organizing the Kids Corner, touch up paint, weed, mulch, & landscape around the trees in front, clean up all trash around the building, weed-wack around the building, organizing the chairs and the Bibles, cleaning around the stage and instruments and anything else that we can do to make the place into an inviting house of worship.

Thank you all for participating!

If you are interested in serving on Worship Team in any way (vocalist, musician, audio/visual), send an email to Adam.

Cassie puts together the Master Schedule of volunteers for our Sunday services and is starting to plan for the fall.

We’re a simple church, but we still need people to serve in many areas:

Set-Up Crew

Welcoming Team

Worship Teams

Scripture Readers

Sunday School Teachers

Kids’ Corner Workers

Tear Down Crew

If you’re interested in helping out in any of these areas, let Cassie know at admin

IBC’s worship ministry is looking for help. We could use more musicians, Audio/Video help, leaders, and anybody else who feels like she or he could lend a hand with things like organization, prayer(!), or anything else that might be helpful. Please contact me if you’re interested at adoptedinChrist.

Most of all, we just need God. So please pray that God would help us all come together to praise the glory of his grace in Christ!


Interested in helping out IBC’s worship ministry? If you have musical, organizational, audio/video, or administrative abilities, and would like to be used to help enhance our gathered worship experience, please contact Adam Smith.

If you’re interested in Worship Leading, you’re invited to attend a meeting hosted by Adam this Saturday night. We’ll be looking at how the gospel can shape the flow of our Sunday services. To respond to the invitation, please click this link:

All current worship leaders are encouraged to attend. But feel free to come if you’re not. Even if you just want to learn about this stuff, you’re invited and welcome to join us.

The schedule is being made for this Fall and we could use more volunteers.

If you would like to serve on a Worship Team, contact Pastor Adam.

We could use people on Welcome Team, Set-Up, Tear-Down, and Scripture Readers. But the biggest need right now is for Kids’ Corner workers and Sunday School teachers! In case you haven’t noticed we’ve had a huge influx of children in our church. And, we are starting a new curriculum this Fall! Contact Cassie if you are interested in helping out somewhere.

The Worship Ministry could use people to help with Sound and Slides.

If you’re interested, contact worship
