The married couples of International Baptist Church at Dumaguete enjoyed a great evening of fabulous food, fellowship, and fun, as we had our 2012 Married Couples Banquet, “My Beloved,” on Friday, February 17, 2012. Photos from the occasion have been posted on the International Baptist Church website, as well as the couple’s photos that were taken.
A strong church needs strong families, and strong families need strong marriages. We’re grateful for the married couples who are willing to invest in their marriages!
Mark your calendars for July 11-13, 2012, with plans to attend the “Faithful Men 2012 Conference on Soul Winning and Church Planting.” More details will be forthcoming but you’ll not want to miss this exciting conference with three great pastors who will stir your hearts.

IBC Members, don’t let the recent ground shaking keep you from being in church tonight for our Wednesday evening Bible study. I’ll be continuing our series of studies on “Faith to Faith.” Tonight we will continue with Gideon and I’ll show you that we are to be “trusting God, not the odds.”
God sent earthquakes in the Bible to increase the faith of believers and to frighten unbelievers. He is still in control today, so be in your place tonight with God’s people! We’ll be looking for you at 6:30pm.
A new event is taking place each month in the International Baptist Church at Dumaguete Library. “Unshelved” is your opportunity to come spend time with different members of our church staff as they “unshelve” a book from our library. Our staff men and their wives will host you in our library in a comfortable setting and share with you highlights from the book of the month. There will be time for you to ask questions and you will be able to check out the book or other books on the same topic.
This month’s book to be “unshelved” is “12 Myths of Marriage” by Dr. Jack Schaap. Your hosts for this month’s event will be Pastor and Mrs. DeMoville. Come enjoy an enjoyable evening as we discuss the topic of marriage and answer questions you have. The event begins at 6pm in the church library. Plan now to attend!
Because a book on the shelf only helps itself!
