IPC Daily Calendar
For his Doctor of Ministry project, Beyond the Lectionary, Rev. Brian Lays wrote sermons on biblical texts that are not found in the Lectionary cycle. These texts are particularly theologically challenging for various reasons, so Rev. Lays met with a focus group prior to each sermon to study the text, considering especially the pastoral care concerns present. With the group’s feedback, he prepared a sermon, which the group later evaluated. In the end, a recommendation was made as to whether or not the text, given its challenges, should be added to the Lectionary if it were to be revised or expanded. Learn more about this project during a special virtual presentation.

Studies suggest that about 90% of Christians have never read the entire Bible. Whether or not you’re a part of that 90%, now is your chance to embark on this deeply meaningful and faith-forming challenge! Beginning Sunday, April 19, members of IPC will be reading the whole Bible together in 90 days!
The class will require only 30-40 minutes of reading per day beginning with Genesis 1:1 on April 19. We will conclude with Revelation 22:21 on July 19. Each Sunday, a class will be offered on YouTube to preview the coming week’s readings and help describe the background and context of the unfolding story of salvation in scripture.
