Recreation Center

Our Recreation Ministry is a fun place to connect with friends and family through athletics and some friendly competition. This ministry allows us to reach out to the community and share the love of Christ in a laid back atmosphere making everyone feel welcome. We are equipped with basketball courts, a jogging track, a racquetball court, a children’s play area, volleyball equipment and an exercise and weight room. There are some requirements to use the exercise and weight room for safety reasons along with a small fee. We have activities throughout the year including a basketball league, a volleyball league, golf tournaments, a softball league, family ski trip, stretch class and more. Check with our Recreation staff for more information about all these activities as they each occur at different times throughout the year. We offer camps during the summer and a kids and youth basketball league in the winter months. We are a church that is all about connecting with our people, welcoming people into our doors and providing activities for families to participate together.

Beginning June 23, 2020

We are pleased to announce that beginning June 23, the walking track and weight room at Immanuel Baptist Church’s recreation center will reopen on a limited basis.  With current AR Department of Health directives in mind the walking track and weight room** will be available by appointment only on Tuesdays and Thursdays in hourly intervals.  Hours of availability for Tuesdays and Thursdays are 9am-10am, 11am-12pm, 1pm-2pm, 3pm-4pm.  The walking track will be able to accommodate 6 walkers/joggers at a time while the weight room will have 2 treadmills, 2 recumbent bikes, and an elliptical available for cardio and 2 people using the weight machines at a given hour.

By signing up for a time slot and entering the building you are stating that you:

  • Have had no fever of 100.4° F or greater in the last 2 days:

  • Have had no cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell:

  • Had no contact with a person known to be infected with COVID-19 within the previous 14 days;

  • Have no compromised immune system and/or have chronic diseases.

What to expect:

  • Upon entering the building you will be asked to wear a mask unless you are currently exercising.

  • We also encourage you bring a water bottle since the AR Department has deemed water fountains a “high touch surface.”

  • The Locker Rooms, until further notice, are for storage of personal items only. Meaning the showers will not be available.

  • You will be admitted into the building no earlier that 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time.

  • Once the hour is up, recreation staff will begin to usher people out so that we can disinfect areas of use.

You can sign up for a time on Tuesday and/or Thursday by going to ibclr.org/recreation.  For additional questions please contact Brian and brian.spigner@ibclr.org.  We look forward to seeing so many of you again!

**The weight room is available to all those that have gone through the Faith and Fitness class.  If you would like to go through the class please contact Brian at brian.spigner@ibclr.org
