A GUIDE TO FUNERAL PLANNING AT IPC
Death can be a difficult subject for one to consider; it may be even more difficult to discuss with our loved ones. However, planning for what is inevitable for all human beings can be not only a significant spiritual experience for you, but also a gift of love for your family and friends. To assist with handling this challenging task for families, the Congregational Care and Counseling Ministry has prepared a booklet, A Guide to Funeral Planning at IPC.
Printed copies of the booklet are now available for IPC members,
and a PDF version can be found here: A Guide to Funeral Planning at IPC (PDF copy)

A physics lesson in the IPC sanctuary choir loft
Check out the Fox 6 WBRC news story on Jeff McLelland (IPC Director of Music & Fine Arts ) and Jeff Johnson (IPC member and choir member and award-winning physics teacher) and Governor's School students. Jeff Johnson is teaching physics this summer in the Governor's School at Samford. This week the students had a physics lesson in the IPC sanctuary studying soundwaves and how sounds are produced on our Joseph W. Schreiber organ from Dobson Pipe Organ Builders. The two Jeffs and the students were filmed Wednesday, June 19 by Fox 6 News in the sanctuary during Jeff McLelland's lecture/demonstration/tour of the organ and organ chambers and Jeff Johnson's physics lesson.
