Welcome to our informative blog!  We will do our best to update frequently about events in the life of the church and about prayer concerns/updates.

Berean Christian Church exists to create a loving community for the purpose of equipping and encouraging Christians to share in God’s relevant message of forgiveness and hope to lost people.  We are located at 10750 N. County Hwy 2 in Ipava, Illinois.

Important Information

Mission Trip

This August, a group from our church will be traveling to take part in a church plant in Rhode Island.  They will be having a fundraiser dinner this Friday night, May 20th in order to provide a chance for the congregation to support them financially.  Please plan to attend and join us for some fellowship and good food!

Church Directory

We are now taking picture appointments for our updated photo directory.  The photos will be taken at the church on June 3rd-4th.  Contact Donna to reserve your spot today!


Vacation Bible School  will be June 6th-10th from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Our theme this year is “Hometown Nazareth.”  The kids will be learning what life was like in biblical times and are encouraged to dress the part.  Stop by or call the church today to get your youngster(s) registered!

We will have our closing program on Friday from 3:00pm-7:00pm, and we encourage everyone to attend to take part in the Carnival (complete with dunk tank!) and the delicious summertime meal of grilled pork chops.  Yum!

Youth Sunday

June 19th (Father’s Day) will be our next Youth Sunday, so please come join us for breakfast before the service and stay to enjoy our children and young adults singing and serving.

We would love to have you come and worship with us!
