Dinner at 5:30 pm followed by Champions of Faith programming. Through songs, activities, and Bible study, children in grades 5K - 6th will experience the rich spiritual legacy of eight Bible champions whose lives of obedience provide worthy examples to follow. Join us Sept. 1 - Nov. 17.
We welcome families to our annual Fall Festival to be held at The Children’s Fresh Air Farm on Sunday, Oct. 24. Activities include an inflatable slide, games, hayride, cake walk, pumpkin patch, photo booth, and others.
At 5 pm, stay after the Fall Festival or come to the Farm for the Table evening worship service.
Orders for the holiday season are due by October 31. Greenery will be delivered to your house by Boy Scout from the Troop within a week after Thanksgiving. Thank you for supporting this mission of IPC.
The service is offered by the IPC Camerata Sunday, October 31, at 4 p.m. in the sanctuary with Rev. David Seamon as the officiant. The worship is truly ecumenical, as it draws on traditions of worship dating to the Fourth Century and is a service of reflection where beauty in language and music can speak to us of God in a rich and diverse way. Within this hallowed space, you may forget the ceaseless activity of daily life and be still.
