Serve

Independent Presbyterian Church strongly believes in continuing to carry out Christ's ministry in Birmingham and the world. Help IPC Community Ministries by joining us for service opportunities ranging from working with children, providing meals or visits to homebound members, gardening, taking pictures or welcoming new members. There's one for all skill sets and even chances to learn! 

Upcoming Service Opportunities

  • Start forming a team with friends, family, and neighbors now. IPC is sponsoring and participating with churches in our Presbytery to build a Habitat for Humanity home this fall. Find volunteer registration information.

  • Provide and serve dinner for the women and children staying at First Light. IPC will be providing the evening meals each night the weeks of Oct. 3-9 and Nov. 24-Dec. 4. Please consider this great activity for a family or group.

  • Kick-off our annual Harvest for Hunger campaign with a family-friendly Crop Drop on Sunday, Oct. 17, at 3 pm. All ages 5 and up are invited to help sack potatoes for our neighbors who struggle with food insecurity. The deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 1.

  • Blessing Box Food Ministry | Ongoing

    Drop off donations or send items via a delivery service Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to IPC Community Ministries' entrance on 31st Street South. Our fall needs include: individual-sized water bottles and Gatorade, canned meats, breakfast bars, peanut butter, jelly, fruit cups, pop-top canned fruits and soup, powdered milk, pasta sauce, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, bar soap, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry and liquid dish detergent (small), and pet food.

  • Sign up to provide extra support for our vulnerable, food insecure, and temporarily unhoused neighbors this summer by providing sack lunches to drop off at Highlands United Methodist Church on Tuesdays. Lunches are typically made at home and include a sandwich, chips, piece of fruit, small bottle of water or juice box, dessert, and peanut butter or cheese crackers as a snack for later.
