Camp Tuition Assistance Needed

Posted by Rick on June 28, 2010

In the past several years, ISBC has either outright paid for or at least provided assistance for children from the church to go to children’s camp. As you well know, our budget cannot support that this year.

In the past couple of years, we’ve only had up to three children attending camp. This year, we have seven.

In the past couple of years, we’ve sent our children with FBC, Okay, who has graciously allowed us to use their sponsors, their cooks, and their arrangments. This year, we will continue to make use of their hospitality, due to the fact that we do not have enough volunteers to staff our own cabin.

This year, we have several of the children, who are faithful attenders of ISBC, who want to go to camp but don’t have enough money to pay the tuition. The camp fee is $65 per child, which includes housing, food, transportation, insurance, and a T-shirt.

I am appealing to you to sponsor a kid for camp. Even if you aren’t able to pay the entire tuition, you could team up with another person in the church and make sure all of the children who want to go can.

We need to pay the entire tuition to FBC Okay by the evening of Sunday, July 11. The camp is July 12-16. If you wish to give, please mark your envelopes “Camp” or email the pastor.

May God bless you as you bless others!

Children’s Church Has Begun!

Posted by Rick on January 6, 2010

This past week, children at Immanuel Southern were treated to the very first ISBC Children’s Church led by Jack and Pat Bruce.  The Bruces have felt led by the Lord to begin a work especially for children and are excited at the prospect of this new ministry!

The children will attend the main worship service through the singing, baptisms, welcome and offering.  They will be dismissed to their very own service during the offering.

Jack and Pat plan to offer an age appropriate worship setting including Bible stories and individualized prayer times.  Children’s Church is for kids Kindergarten through Sixth Grades.
