At IBCLex we strive every day to be the hands and feet of Jesus within our Lexington community. On November 7 and 8, we are coming together to show Lexington some extra love with two days filled with service projects throughout the community.  Sign up with your community group or your family and help us spread the love of Jesus throughout this city! #ibclex
