Help me, God, to live my days with compassion and service for others. There's a place for you to express your faith in concrete acts of compassionate service.

For more than 100 years, IPC has risen to the challenge of providing a place for inspired worship and fellowship and especially as a place for service. Here the hungry obtain food, the needy receive help, and children are tutored in reading, and are nurtured and loved.

Ministry Opportunities

  • One of IPC's first and oldest outreach missions, the Children's Fresh Air Farm's mission is to promote hope and opportunity through partnerships with children, families, and the community by offering quality programming rooted in the love of Christ. Get directions to the Farm.

  • The downtown shelter works with homeless women and their children to help them find hope, to seek opportunity, and to grow spiritually, thereby achieving their full potential. IPC volunteers serve dinners and spend the night at the shelter. The IPC children present a Christmas musical program at Christmas.

  • Your generous donations of items to the Food Pantry help us keep the Blessing Boxes and our Weekend Buddy Bags stocked. While we do not have a way to accurately account for the number of neighbors and guests who benefit from this ministry, we frequently re-stock the Blessing Boxes more than once daily. Sign up for our food pantry emails to learn more about weekly needs.

  • Habitat for Humanity

    IPC volunteers participate in presbytery builds to help construct a home for a deserving family. No experience necessary.

  • A non-profit retirement community sponsored by IPC. It includes independent living, assisted living, memory care assisted living and skilled nursing units on a scenic 120-acres campus. Open to all people at least 62-years-old

  • Living River offers summer camp and environmental education programs along the Cahaba River in Shelby and Bibb Counties. This nonprofit is associated with IPC's presbytery, the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley.

  • One of the ways IPC participates in the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ is by sending mission teams to places of need both within the United States and around the world.

  • Volunteers staff this tutoring program that seeks to improve the reading skills and self-esteem of second graders. Children and their tutors meet at the church after school.
