At Independent Presbyterian Church, we believe God calls us to be a Christian community, actively engaged in transforming lives through our living faith in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. You are invited to worship here and to discover ways to grow your faith, serve in ministry to others, and build relationships through fellowship. All are welcome.
Youth Sunday is one of my favorite Sundays of the year. There is a different spirit in the air among those who gather to worship. Certainly it is the same Spirit that is present in all of our worship, but when Youth take over the service, there is a different energy in the room.
Even in darkness, God’s light continues to shine. A temporary power outage during our 9:30 am Easter Sunday worship reminded us of that. The organ, lights and microphones may have gone out. But out of the darkness, the IPC Choir continued to lead us through a beautiful a cappella rendition of “Jesus Christ is Risen Today” and worship continued.
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” To the disciples, this commandment was new. But for us, it’s one that we’ve heard countless times. On this Maundy Thursday, pause and reconsider those words, especially in the light of this week’s tragic fire at Notre Dame in Paris.
