This year’s Mercedes Marathon will be held on Sunday, Feb. 13, and the race route again includes Highland Avenue in front of IPC. Due to the planned road closures surrounding the church, our one worship service will be the Table service at a special time. Worship with us at 4 pm in Highland Hall with additional service and fellowship opportunities throughout the day.

The 51st Annual Religious Arts Festival at IPC begins Sunday, Jan. 30, with events through Sunday, Feb. 6. This year we focus on the rich cultural traditions of 18th-century Germany and Johann Sebastian Bach in the areas of music, food, and literature.

This week our Religious Arts Festival begins and brings another feast of artistry and devotion to the good and beautiful things in the church and life. This year we’re celebrating Germany, and a great ambassador of religious genius, Johann Sebastian Bach.

Join us this Sunday, Jan. 23, at the 11 am worship service for Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans where all members will be welcome to bring a family heirloom for a special blessing. 

I am excited to start the new year with you and discover what God will be doing among us in 2022 and how he is preparing our church for the years ahead.

Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be to all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

IPC's Christmas Eve services will likely be crowded, and for your safety and the safety of those around you, masks are strongly recommended. For those who prefer to worship at home, you are invited to join your IPC family through our virtual worship services. 

On the fourth Sunday of Advent, this is the day we light the candle of love—love that lived for the sake of others.

Your generosity makes it possible for us to assist our neighbors in need, and we are experiencing greater need during this season. IPC filled Harvest for Hunger grocery sacks in November to share the love of Christ, and we now introduce a new ministry, Weekend Buddy Bags.

You are invited this Giving Tuesday to join fellow IPC members to spread some holiday cheer. Participate in the holiday activities of our church and get involved!
