First Service at New IBCB Building

Yesterday was the official opening day and first worship service at the new International Bible Church building. There was a brief ceremony outside and then we all marched in while singing "I will enter His gates with thanksgiving in my heart... for He hath made me glad."

Bicento and Betty (Ratzlaff) Henriquez came over from Aruba for the weekend. You can see them sitting in the middle on the left side in the photo below.

There were lots of friends and visitors in attendance. It was standing room only after a bit. Probably were 145 people or so.

Here is a view looking from where the muscians were standing, back to the porch on the left, and the main entrance on the right.

Everyone hung around for quite a while after the service and enjoyed cake, coffie and punch. Friendly fellowship after the church services is one of the main drawing cards of the IBC.
