“He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.”  ~ John 10:3b-5

A loving and nurturing environment is provided at IPC for children and their families to learn and grow in their faith and to become active participants in the church community.

IPC members are invited to purchase items to fill one of the stockings. To sign up to fill a stocking, visit our signup genius linked below. IPC is providing the stockings and staff will be stuffing them so be sure to bring your items in a bag labeled with the age and gender of the child you committed to fill a stocking for. Items can be dropped off in Catherine’s office on the 2nd floor or at the reception desk. All items need to be dropped off by 12/12. We request that there be a $25 limit on each stocking.
