Baptism and Lord’s Supper Planned for Sunday

Posted by Rick on August 19, 2011

We have a BIG SUNDAY planned for this Sunday, August 21st!

We’ll begin the worship service with the baptism of four people; Brian Tyler, Will Niffen, Abby Carson, and Makayla Hall! Come and be witnesses to their acts of obedience!

We’ll also celebrate the Lord’s Supper! It will be unlike any other Lord’s Supper we’ve celebrated at ISBC. I’m praying that it will be a great encouragement to you. Please be in sincere self-examination as you prepare spiritually to participate in the Supper of our Lord.

God is doing some great things at ISBC! Please continue to be in prayer for the church as we seek God’s will and strive to glorify Him in all we do!

Sunday School starts at 9:45. If you don’t currently attend a Sunday School class, please come this Sunday to check things out; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!


See ya Sunday!

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on March 24, 2010

This coming Sunday,  we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper!  Begin to prepare your hearts.  I Corinthians 11:29 warns us to not take the Lord’s Supper in an unworthy manner.  It urges us to examine ourselves.

We should take this to mean that if we are living in unrepentant sin, then get right with God (repent and don’t do that sin any more) before coming to His table.  If you have something against someone, or someone has something against you, then make it right with that person before coming to His table.

Our message Sunday morning will be “Cleaning House” based on Matthew 21:12-16, where Jesus cleansed the temple in Jerusalem.

Sunday evening, the Abbotts will be with us to give a presentation of their work in Indonesia.  We’ll have a Finger Food Fellowship following.

See you Sunday!

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Self Examination” based on I Corinthians 11:17-30.

  • We must not take the Lord’s supper in an unworthy manner.
  • We must examine ourselves to make sure we are able to take the Lord’s Supper.
  • We must have confessed Jesus as Lord before we are “worthy” to take it.
  • We must not use it as an excuse to exclude other believers.
  • We must not attach legalistic rules to govern who takes it.
  • In taking the Lord’s Supper, we proclaim His death until Jesus returns.

You can also listen to Sunday evening’s sermon, “Be Careful!” based on Ephesians 5:15-21 by clicking here or on the audio player below.

We had such a wonderful time together on Resurrection Sunday!  We enjoyed two special music presentations and a selection from the Immanuel Choir.  We also celebrated the Lord’s Supper.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon: “He Is Risen”:

  • The women who went to the tomb weren’t expecting Jesus to be alive, otherwise, they wouldn’t have gone to the trouble of buying and gather the spices for preparing His body.
  • When they got to to the tomb and found it open, they didn’t understand what was going on.
  • When the women told the disciples what the angels said, the disciples didn’t understand it, either.
  • Once they understood that He was alive, then they no longer had any doubts.
  • Jesus’ resurrection makes it possible for us to have eternal life.

You can listen to the sermon here or by clicking the player below.

Good Friday

Posted by Rick on March 21, 2008

What’s so good about Good Friday?  It certainly wasn’t good for Jesus, as He was tortured then executed!  It was only good for mankind.  Not that it was we who tortured and executed Him, but it was for us that He endured all of that horrible suffering!

He suffered and bled and died for us!  For you!  For me!  He took our sins upon Him and received the punishment for all sins of all mankind!  How very awful that some do not acknowledge this.

It may be Friday, but Sunday’s on the way!  That is why I usually call this particular post, “Sunday’s Coming!”; to remind us that no matter what happens through the week, the reality of the resurrection should be what we keep out eyes on.

As you join us this Resurrection Sunday, we will enjoy several musical specials plus a special from our Immanuel Choir.  We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper.  Our sermon will be, “He is Risen!”

Come back Sunday evening and hear a very special monologue/song by our interim Minister of Music, Paul Williams as he presents “He’s Alive”.  Our sermon Sunday evening will be “A Walk With the Savior”.

Invite your family!  Invite your neighbors!  Invite your friends!  Let’s celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on March 14, 2008

March 16 – Palm Sunday.  The day we commemorate Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.  It was the day that Christ humbly rode a donkey into the capitol.  They day the people of Israel were looking for Him to become a political king and free them from the ruthless rule of the Roman Empire.  It was the only day when He was recognized and worshiped, in person, as the Messiah.  He didn’t meet their expectations.  He came to establish a heavenly kingdom, not to rule on earth.  Join us at Immanuel Baptist Church this Palm Sunday as we ask the question, “What are YOU looking for?” based on John 12:9-13.

Come back in the evening service and learn about the day “When Jesus Got Mad”, based on Mark 11:15-18.

As we begin this Holy Week, I pray that you will take every opportunity to share your faith with your family, friends and those whom the Lord lays on your heart.  Be sure to invite your family, friends, and neighbors to attend church with you on Palm Sunday and of course, on Easter Sunday.  Let them know that we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper on Easter.  And, be sure to invite them to Sunday School!
