In our educational ministry we strive for knowledge and understanding of the biblical story, application of God’s story in our everyday lives and service of compassion, reconciliation and justice in Christ’s name.
Adult Sunday school meets weekly from 10-10:50 am for Faith Formation and Bible study. There are classes for every stage in life.
IPC also offers several daily classes September- May and select groups meet year round. Options include book groups, Bible study with IPC ministers, yoga and age-specific classes.
Our typical offerings are listed below and will resume once we can safely gather for these types of special events.
