Children's Ministries at IPC

“He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.”  ~ John 10:3b-5

A loving and nurturing environment is provided at IPC for children and their families to learn and grow in their faith and to become active participants in the church community.

Each Wednesday Night
First Floor | 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Children's Midweek programming begins Sept. 14! Growing in Grace & Gratitude is our quarterly denominational curriculum for children ages 3–10 which provides age appropriate opportunities for responses of gratitude through claiming, celebrating, praying and offering. IPC children will see God’s grace in the biblical narrative and in our world today through reading scripture, crafts, and music.

Each Wednesday Night
First Floor | 5:30 - 7:30 pm

Children's Midweek programming begins Sept. 14! During the “Big Questions” small group, students in 4th-6th grade will begin to tackle the more challenging questions of our faith through an engaging curriculum with many fun activities. Starting with creation and journeying through the time of Jesus, we will explore questions such as, “Why do bad things happen if God is so loving and powerful?” “Was Jesus a normal kid?” “If everything belongs to God, why do I have to clean my room?” and “How should I pray?”. This will be a time to think more about the unfolding story of God and our understanding of it. Parents are encouraged to follow along with the adult version, Manna and Mercy: A Brief History of God's Unfolding Promise to Mend the Entire Universe by Daniel Erlander.

Parent's Date Night is designed to be a nudge for the couples at IPC. A nudge to have a conversation. A nudge to laugh. A nudge to think. A nudge to break out of normal routines. Drop off your kids on the first Wednesday night of the month while you and your partner enjoy a couple of hours together. Older children (grades K5-6th) will enjoy a Kid's Fun Night while younger children (babies-4 years) go to childcare. Sign up for Oct. 5 is coming soon and save the date for Nov. 2.
