Advent at IBC

During the holidays, the chaos of our lives gets amplified. We're somehow busier than usual but feeling the pains of life more acutely. Advent reminds us that what we're longing for, whether we realize it or not, is life with God.

Advent Worship Services

December 3, 10 & 17 · 9 and 10:45 a.m.

Join us for worship each Sunday of Advent as we explore what a "with-God" life looks like, and how Jesus made it possible. Child and youth programming is available from birth through high school, no registration necessary.

Christmas Eve Services

December 24 · 10:45 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate the truth that God came near to us in the incarnation of Jesus. Choose from two identical, family-friendly services in our worship center. Kids ministry will be offered for ages 4 and under, and our Arise sensory space will be open during the 10:45 a.m. service only (registration and details here).

Barry, Sissy and Isaac tackle this question on the podcast to help us enter into the season with intentionality and understanding.
