Monday, June 21 at 7 pm
Iron City Grill

After a long hiatus, we are back with our first Beer & Hymns of 2021. It's exactly what it sounds like! We sing old-timey hymns (plus a few new ones...as long as they sound good in a bar) while enjoying good food and beverages.

Bring a few friends (or just make friends there!) and the best singing voice you have! After all, our motto is "Sing Loudly, Drink Slowly, Make Friends."

Wednesdays this Summer | 6 pm
Garage/Patio area of Highland Hall

IPC Congregational Care is sponsoring a Members in the Middle gathering on seven Wednesday nights this summer for dinner, fellowship and a small group study. We will use the book Paul for Everyone: The Prison Letters by N.T. Wright, focusing on the Philippians section.

Please join us from 6-7:30 pm on Wednesdays: June 9,16, 23, and 30 and July 14, 21, and 28. Dinners can be reserved through IPC's Sign Up Links, and you can pick up curbside as you arrive for the gatherings.

Wondering if you are a Member in the Middle? Likely you are! All adults are welcome to join, however, offerings for this group are generally planned to appeal to ages that range from 50-70 with wiggle room on either end.

Sunday Evenings, starting June 13 at 5pm
Garage at Highland Hall

Join us for dinner, communion, and a new series "I've been meaning to ask..." Each week during the Table worship service, we'll have food, conversation, music and prayer. Find us at 5 pm in the Garage at Highland Hall on June 13, June 20, June 27 and July 11.

Curiosity, Courage, and Connection
More about IPC's series: "I've been meaning to ask?..."
Some of the best conversations start with good questions—questions we’ve been meaning to ask, questions that keep us curious, and questions that lead us deeper into courage and connection. Our upcoming worship series from A Sanctified Art centers around four guiding questions: “I’ve been meaning to ask... Where are you from?... Where does it hurt?... What do you need?... Where do we go from here?”

As you can see, these questions aren’t surface level; they invite us to tell our stories, share our pain, care for one another, and dream about a new way forward together. Through vulnerability and authenticity, may our courageous conversations lead us to glimpse hope, joy, and beauty—and to become the community God created us to be.

Each Sunday | 9:45-10:45 am
Foyer of Highland Hall

Join us for a coffee hour each Sunday following the 8:45 am service. We welcome anyone who wants to come to between 9:45-10:45 am for coffee and fellowship at Highland Hall. Please note new location for summer.

Garage at Highland Hall

Join members and friends of IPC for a service lunch on Tuesday, June 29. We will pack lunches for Food for our Journey (FFOJ), a faith-based initiative that uses a food truck to deliver food to the hungry in Birmingham, thus removing the travel requirement for those who are not mobile. Coordinated by IPC Presbyterian Women, tickets ($20) include the cost of your lunch and supplies to pack lunches for the FFOJ ministry. We plan to pack lunches from 11 to Noon, then will eat lunch together and enjoy summer fellowship. If you cannot attend the luncheon, please consider making a donation using the sign up form.

IPC wishes you a happy Independence Day! Please note that IPC will only offer one worship service at 11 am, and no Sunday School Classes will meet. Church offices will be closed Monday, July 5, in observance of the holiday.
