Dear Church Family, 

The Representative Nominating Committee is beginning the discernment process of identifying qualified nominees for the Elder and Deacon classes of 2021, the vice president of the congregation (who will become president in 2020), trustees to serve on the IPC Foundation, and two congregants to serve as members at large on the Representative Nominating Committee. 

The Nominating Committee needs your help obtaining names of men and women whom you believe have the spiritual gifts and willingness to serve. Along with this letter you will find descriptions concerning the offices of Elder and Deacon from the PCUSA Book of Order, as well as job descriptions for our vice president, president and members of the representative nominating committee. We ask you to review this material and then prayerfully complete the nominating form. 

The more information you provide concerning the gifts and talents of a candidate as well as his or her previous service to the church, the more effectively we may identify future leadership for IPC. Please feel free to make additional copies of the nominating forms. Forms are also available on the second floor and in the narthex. You may also complete your form online at or e-mail your nominations to: 

Nominations may be deposited in marked boxes located on the second floor and in the narthex or mailed to the church. Please note, the deadline for nominations is March 5, 2018. All nominations must be delivered to the church or have a postmark no later than March 5 to be considered. Every form will be considered, and the number of forms submitted will not bear significance in our deliberations. It is also acceptable for individuals to submit their own name for consideration. 

The Nominating Committee hopes that you will join us in our efforts of prayerful consideration and discernment in seeking those called by God to serve IPC. If you have questions, please call Lucy Turner or Bill McKelvey at 933-1830 or George Taylor (Chair of the Representative Nominating Committee). 

Thank you. 

In Christ’s Service, 

Rev. Dr. William J. Carl, III
