Grace Groups Lent 2024

Join a Grace Group as we explore the "I Am" statements in John together during the Lenten season! Grace Groups offer IPC members and friends a way to connect while studying scriptures in a small group setting. In Jesus Revealed: The I Am Statements in the Gospel of John, author Matt Rawle explores the "I Am" statements as works of art that resonate throughout the Gospel and all of Scripture. He shows how these words point beyond themselves to the deep mystery of Jesus Christ.

Groups meet in various places and times over six weeks twice a year. There is a group for you! Registration opens on January 21.

Facilitator: Cindy Shaw

  • Facilitator: Kay Roller
    All IPC Day School and church mothers are invited to join this small group of women to discuss life as a mom. This semester, the group will be studying “Finding Your People” by Jennie Allen. You were created to play, engage, adventure, and explore—with others. In this study, you’ll discover exactly how to dive into the deep end and experience the full wonder of community. Because while the ache of loneliness is real, it doesn’t have to be your reality.

  • This winter, the group will be studying The Will of God by Leslie Weatherhead.

  • Tapestries, 1st & 3rd Tuesdays at noon in RM 217

    Facilitator: Susan Clayton
    This group reads and discusses books on a variety of topics, including but not limited to theology, spirituality, biblical interpretation, Christian ethics, world religions, faith and culture, faith and the arts/sciences, and the history of religions. All are welcome in this discussion group. Currently, the class is comprised of women of various ages.

    This winter, they will continue to study Karen Armstrong's 2022 book, "Sacred Nature: Restoring our Ancient Bond with the Natural World" in a group discussion format. In this book, Armstrong, a historian of religion, outlines the history of the world's religious traditions as they understood the relationship between the sacred/divine and the natural world and its place in many spiritual traditions from around the world and through time.

The lessons are taught by various class members and there is always lots of participation and discussion in class. They enjoy service projects every so often as well as occasional social get-togethers. Women are members of IPC or from other churches.

  • Each Wednesday (year-round) on Zoom

    This group reflects together to deepen their knowledge and understanding of scripture. All are invited to join this study on zoom that accommodates to the busyiness of the current world. A packet of material and scripture is used to guide the group each week. This winter, they are studying the "Minor Prophets." Jesus drew on the words and images of these scriptures in his life and teachings, and this group will discuss what they might have to say to us in our times. Come join us.

    This group will get to eat together at 5:30 pm for half an hour and then study God’s Word together as they look at the sermon text for the upcoming Sunday. Even if you can’t make it for dinner, we hope you will join us for study at 6 pm in RM 218.
