IARBC Churches Partner Together

Fellowship Baptist hosted Urbandale Baptist and Emmanuel Baptist (all from Des Moines) at a combined service this fall. The event featured Scripture reading, the Lord’s Supper, and FBBC’s choral ensemble, “Uplift.” The evening continued with a friendly chili-cookoff¬†competition.¬†

Pastor Nathan Gast (Urbandale Baptist) remarked, “The opportunity to worship with other believers reminds us that we are part of a bigger body of believers, and will one day with these and many more worship together around the throne of our great God and King forever and ever! Our people love to join together for these joint services!”¬†

Pastor Dan Vance (Fellowship Baptist) agreed, “Watching the smiles and conversations around the chili was a delight, but the highlight of the evening was the sound of many voices praising God together and being reminded of our partnership in the Gospel.”
