Held the first Wednesday of each month, Parents Date Night is designed to be a nudge for the couples at IPC. A nudge to have a conversation. A nudge to laugh. A nudge to think. A nudge to break out of our normal routines. Drop off your children at IPC while you and your partner enjoy a couple of hours together. Cultivated date night materials will be linked below, or you can use the time to recharge any way you need it.

As part of Kids Fun Night, dinner will be provided ($4 per child). A movie night is planned for children 5K – 6th grade, and nursery care for babies - 4s will be provided by the IPC childcare staff by reservation. Sign up for nursery care using the form below.

Oct.10 - Nov. 20
Various Locations or via Zoom

Grace Groups offer an opportunity to get to know other members and study the scriptures in a small group setting. Fall groups meet in various places or via Zoom from Oct.10 - Nov. 20. For fall, we will study Acts: Catching Up With the Spirit by Matthew L. Skinner. This study explores six themes that illustrate how reading Acts is capable of igniting our imagination about the character of the Christian gospel, the work of God’s people (the Church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and challenging world.
