Grace Groups Fall 2023

Join a grace group as we explore the book of Revelation together this fall! Grace Groups offer IPC members and friends a way to connect with each other while studying scriptures in a small group setting. Groups meet in various places and times over six weeks twice a year. There is a group for you! Sign up today.

The 2023 Fall Grace Groups will explore the intriguing and sometimes perplexing Book of Revelation. Using Breaking the Code: Understanding the Book of Revelation by Bruce M. Metzger and revised by David A. DeSilva, each small group will delve into the rich symbolism of this important biblical text. Visit Thank You Books at 5502 Crestwood Blvd. to purchase your copy.
