IBC is multi-racial and we are blessed to have many various backgrounds and talents. Our diversity adds depth and opportunity that we all count a privilege to have within our church family.
Ladies Fellowships are held several times per year, giving the ladies opportunities for fellowship and study, often with guest speakers. The women of the church also serve one another with bridal showers, baby showers, meals for new mothers, special outings and activities. Also, ladies meet each Thursday morning at 10:00 for visitation with new neighbors, shut-ins, and visitors to the church.
Men of Independent Baptist Church have frequent work days and opportunities for fellowship. A Men's Breakfast or retreat is typically held each year, along with various sports activities.
Adult Singles at IBC keep busy with activities, often meeting informally on Sunday evenings following the church service at an area restaurant. Recent activities include attending professional sports games in Chicago, plays, concerts, and museums. They also attend many Singles Retreats in the area and are key participants on mission trips.
