Last evening we concluded the 4th and final session of International Baptist Bible Institute at International Baptist Church for the 2011-2012 year. Please be in the 4:30pm service this Sunday, April 1, 2012, as we congratulate those who have successfully completed their courses and give out their certificates.
Although it has been no secret to the people of International Baptist Church at Dumaguete, the official announcement took place on March 27, 2012, by Dr. Jack Schaap from the chapel platform of Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana. In the college’s 40th year of existence, she is once again expanding her influence with the start of another Hyles-Anderson College as International Baptist Church at Dumaguete will be the home of Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines.
Classes will begin taking place on October 1, 2012. We count it an honor to begin training Hylanders here in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental. Learn more about Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines through the official website at http://www.hylesandersonph.com. God has been working in Dumaguete, and now He’s about to do so on a much larger scale. What an exciting time to be serving the Lord in this place!
With the announcement of the college also comes the request for those who are able, to support the founding of the college as well as the students who need assistance to attend. For your consideration to help Hyles-Anderson College of the Philippines, we are giving the audio and sheet music of the song “He Saved Others,” written by Pastor Randy DeMoville and Mrs. Lacey MacRae for the 2011 Missions Conference at International Baptist Church. You may download both the MP3 of the song and the sheet music at the college website.
International Baptist Church will be holding her annual Vacation Bible School from Tuesday, April 17 through Friday, April 20, 2012.

There will be a special awards service for the families of the children to attend on Friday evening, April 20, 2012, at 6:30p.m..
All children from 5-years old through grade 6 are invited to come and take part in all of the singing, fun, Bible teaching, and prizes.
