The 4th Quarter

The 4th Quarter

The goal of the 4th Quarter ministry at IPC is simple:  to build relationships with one another through fellowship, fun and travel. 
We operate by the same rules as Elderhostel.  If you are 55 or older, you will fit the profile of our participants and their guests.  We have regular activities that include day trips to interesting places and outings to local theaters.  We hope you will join us for these times of fun and fellowship. Please call with any questions you might have about the events or your ability to participate. 
 The 4th Quarter is the name given to the older adult ministry.  Some are fans of the famous football coach Bear Bryant who always claimed “the 4th quarter is ours!”   Hence the name of this group who believe the 4th Quarter of life is theirs for fun and fellowship.  The fun continues through the Bridge Groups.  The Knitting Ministry is a way to find fellowship and minister to the congregation at the same time.
If you have any ideas that you would like to share with us, please call or email:
