Adult Sunday school meets weekly from 10-10:50 am
There are classes for every stage in life at IPC. 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.

IPC Families | Garage at Highland Hall
Parents with children from infants to teenagers can find christian education, fellowship, and discipleship in the following groups:
- Bridges: A class for parents with children from infants to sixth graders who are looking to form friendships and grow in faith, marriage, and parenting. We represent varying stages in our life, faith journey, and knowledge of scripture.
Facilitator: Anna Hartzog
- Crossroads: For parents of older children and teenagers, the Crossroads Class provides a place to engage in faith conversations and fellowship as we navigate the intersections of life that tug at us in so many directions. We are preparing our kids for adulthood, caring for aging parents, mourning the loss of loved ones, seeking purpose after parenting, and navigating our own transitions as people of faith. Come join us and experience the authentic friendship, calm, solace, and centered living you are longing to find!
