IPC Daily Calendar
We've been "Counting Our Blessings" and are particularly mindful of them over the Thanksgiving Holiday. As you celebrate with family and friends, a quick reminder that our church offices will be closed.
Join us in celebrating “Advent at Home” with an Advent Wreath Kit. Limited quantities remain for pick-up on Sunday, Nov. 29. Kits for families with children in 6th grade or younger may also be picked up Dec. 5 at Advent Workshop.
This annual tradition, an alternative Christmas gift opportunity, is now available through Dec. 20. Through a gift to the Giving Tree, you can honor a family member, friend, or co-worker with a gift made in their name to IPC Social Services. In the Covid-19 pandemic reality, IPC Social Services has given unprecedented food and financial assistance to our neighbors who are struggling with food, shelter, utilities, transportation, and medical needs. To give, visit ipc-usa.org/connect or mail a check to the church (memo: "Giving Tree"). On the form, you can indicate how many cards you would like, and we will make cards available in the IPC Parlor. Thank you for your generosity this Advent season.
Support the IPC Choir and its mission by purchasing citrus fruit. You can purchase fruit for yourself or choose to donate it to the IPC Food Pantry. Fruit will be available for pick up from IPC on Dec. 19 and Dec. 20. Click on the "Online Order Form" below to order today.
Honor a loved one by making an Advent flower donation in their name(s). Look for envelopes in the October issue of The Window. Donations can also be made online. The names of your loved ones will be printed in the Christmas bulletin. Please click the link below for the online donation form.
Families can reserve a time to stop by the assembly hall to rotate between crafts. Grab and go crafts and to go family meals from Kim Martin and her kitchen staff will also be available.
Celebrate the season with us by touring beautifully decorated homes for Christmas! This year, you'll be able to do it from your home. All proceeds will benefit ministries supporting Birmingham women and children. Tickets are on sale now.
Under the direction of Dr. Jeff McLelland, the concert will feature the IPC Choir and a string orchestra presenting works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, George Frideric Handel, Morten Lauridsen, and more. Due to pandemic procedures, the concert will be livestream-only via YouTube (search for IPC Birmingham).
Provide Christmas stockings for graduates of the Children's Fresh Air Farm's Summer Learning Program. Stocking stuffers are needed based on age and gender, and you can select one or more camper (or their siblings).
All stocking stuffers ($25 price limit) need to be dropped off in the church parlor by Dec. 15. The actual stocking is provided by the church, and it can be picked up prior to Dec. 15 during church office hours (8:30 am - 4:30 pm) or in the parlor after Sunday in-person worship. You may also bring your items on or before Dec. 15, and we will stuff the stockings for you.
Curbside pick-up will be available in the circle behind the "Garage" at Highland Hall (3116 Highland Ave) on Saturday, December 19, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. or Sunday, December 20, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. A choir representative will come to your car and help you complete your order. Any further details and any changes in health and safety procedures will be posted here in this space as they become available.
