Weathering Storms

Please join me in praying for people who lost homes and businesses in Hurricane Michael. This Category 4 storm was more intense than Hurricane Andrew and Hurricane Katrina and devastated several coastal communities. Recovery efforts will take time and assistance from neighbors. The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance contacted presbyteries in the storm’s path before Hurricane Michael hit. In the coming weeks, they will be sending aide. You can learn more about what the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is doing by clicking here. 

We all weather our own storms in life. We want to be there for you. Please call the church and let us know if you or a loved one is sick, in the hospital or at home recovering from an injury. The clergy would like to check in on you and include you on our prayer list.

As we approach the holidays, we know this time can be particularly hard with the stress brought on by additional obligations and the cost. This is also a time when you may struggle with the loss of a loved one or feelings of loneliness. We can help. IPC offers counseling services downstairs on the ground floor. Services are open to members and non-members, and no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. Counseling is available by appointment. Click here to learn more.

The IPC Deacons are also hosting another IPC Roundtable on Tuesday, October 30. This one is on hidden grief and will be led by IPC counselor Dr. Stewart Jackson. Dinner costs $5. It begins at 5:30 pm. The panel discussion is from 6-7 pm and open to all IPC members and the community. Please join us.

Finally, please remember to place your order for Dr. Morgan Roberts' book. The order deadline is this Monday, October 15. Alynn will be accepting $15 in cash or check per book. Please also give her names for personal inscriptions.

See you Sunday,
