Fall Events at IPC

Wednesday, September 7, 2022

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 our normal routines. Drop off your kids (grades k5-6th grade) for a Kid's Fun Night on the first Wednesday night of the month : (Sept. 7, Oct. 5 & Nov. 2) while you and your partner enjoy a couple of hours together. Cultivated date night kits are provided or use the time to recharge in any way you need. Childcare for babies - 4s provided by the IPC Childcare staff.

Sign up to join IPC members for our Dinners for Eight. Couples and singles are invited to dine in members' homes three times a year. Please contact Fairy Sutherland to sign up or if you have questions.

Beer and Hymns is exactly what it sounds like—we sing old-timey hymns (plus a few new ones) while enjoying good food and beverages. Bring yourself, a few friends, and the best singing voice you have to join members of IPC and the community.
