The Elders have decided that in light of the on-going Covid situation, and the uncertainty and unpredictability of how it may or may not develop, we will not host any large, special events at the church for the remainder of this year. For instance, we will not have our annual Thanksgiving/Harvest Dinner in November. Or course, worship services will continue, for which we will wear masks, and other smaller groups (Little Seeds, Sunday School, Youth, Women’s Bible Study, Men’s Prayer Breakfast, Adult Class, etc.) will meet as usual. Also, Home Groups will continue to meet at their own discretion, either in person or online as they choose.
We have started to resume our in person worship services in the sanctuary.
The services will still be live streamed via Facebook and YouTube for those who would like to watch from home.
In order to better prepare yourselves for meeting in person again, please read these guidelines as set forth by the Elders and Deacons of IBCZ: https://www.ibcz.ch/2020/06/17/guidelines-for-resuming-public-worship/
Worship Gather Changes
We are now holding worship gatherings online via Facebook live stream or YouTube live stream.
Please visit our Facebook page to worship with us:
You can also view the live stream on our YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUrN2AqwZvGu-M8Va0Fh__A/videos?view=2&flow=grid
Weekly sermons will also be available through our website and Youtube after the service is over. We will post updates when they are ready for viewing.

Church Camp Change of Date – Due to the uncertainties caused by the the COVID-19 outbreak, we have rescheduled our church camp, originally set for Sept. 11-13 of this year. We thought it best to move it into next year. The new dates are May 28-30, 2021. Thank you for your understanding.
