The Community Ministries Department at IPC has a Social Services account from which we offer assistance with people in need to help pay utility bills and buy prescription medications.
In addition, we have a Food Pantry at IPC from which we provide groceries to families in need.
If you need help from IPC Social Services or Food Pantry
We primarily assist people by appointment at 933-1687. Our secretary, Mrs. Annette Carter, will be in touch to set up an appointment to meet with you about your needs. We can normally provide about 25 people per week with food. We receive many more calls, so it may take a couple of weeks to accommodate you.
How can IPC members help with the Social Services Ministry?
Financial contributions are always needed for the Social Services account. Tax-deductible checks can be made out to “IPC Social Services.”

We ask that you please bring non-perishable food items to the IPC Food Pantry. The Food Pantry can always use basic grocery items:
- Peanut butter and jelly crackers
- Cereal, grits, oatmeal
- Nutrition bars
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Canned or dry milk
- Canned meats [tuna, chicken, salmon]
- Canned chili
- Macaroni & cheese.
Baskets are scattered around the church where you can leave your donations. There are suggestions for food items each week in The E-Update.
Each fall, we have the Harvest for Hunger Food drive when we have a special call for members to bring food to the church to stock the pantry shelves for the holiday season! You can also contribute money to buy food vouchers from Christian Service Mission for needy families.
