Join Us for a Congregational Event
IPC is hosting a luncheon with Archbishop Laurent and Chantal Mbanda, our mission partners from Rwanda. Everyone is invited to learn more about their transformative ministries and IPC's mission journey there next summer. We especially welcome those who are interested in joining the mission journey to Rwanda.
IPC's Pastor’s Bible Study moves to Wednesday evenings this fall. We will eat together at 5:30 pm for half an hour in the Great Hall, and then move to Room 218 at 6 pm to study God’s Word looking at the sermon text for the upcoming Sunday. Even if you can’t make it for dinner, join us to study. Rev. Long will facilitate discussion most weeks. Place your order for dinner by noon the Tuesday before the class.
All IPC Day School and church mothers are invited to join this small group of women to discuss life as a mom. The group will be studying "The Best Yes" by Lysa Terkeurst.
Place your order by noon on Tuesdays and come to the Great Hall on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 pm to pick up your dinner. Weekly options by Kim in IPC's Kitchen include dinner (adult and children's options), family casseroles, or soup. Find menus and place your order below.
NEW! Pick-up Instructions: All meals to be picked up in the Great Hall. Curbside service is no longer available. Please go through the line to get your dinner. There's a plated option to enjoy with your Wednesday night class or have your meal packaged in a to-go container to take home. Soups and casseroles come packaged to take home.
Parent's 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 normal routines. Drop off your kids on the first Wednesday night of the month while you and your partner enjoy a couple of hours together. Older children (grades K5-6th) will enjoy a Kid's Fun Night while younger children (babies-4 years) go to childcare. Sign up for Oct. 5 is coming soon and save the date for Nov. 2.
Sign up to help restock our boxes at 9 am or 1 pm each day. Donations can be dropped off or sent via a delivery service Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to IPC Community Ministries' entrance on 31st Street South. Our current items needed include food and hygiene items.
Provide and serve dinner for the women and children staying at First Light. IPC will be providing the evening meals each night for the week of October 2-8. Please consider this great activity for a family or group. Click below to find available evenings and sign up.
Sign up to join IPC for this year’s Habitat for Humanity Build. We are helping to build a home in East Lake alongside fellow Birmingham-area churches in the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley. The project begins on Sept. 8. You can choose to volunteer with your church family or join members of our Presbytery on any Friday or Saturday starting Sept. 9. IPC volunteer days are planned for Sept. 8, 17 & 23 as well as Oct. 7, 21 & 29. No construction experience is necessary, but you do have to be at least 14 years old. The Access Code to register for the Presbytery Habitat build is presby22. Once registered, complete the waiver (there’s an additional waiver for 14-17 year olds), and then choose your volunteer work date. Please contact Bannon Thorpe, IPC Habitat Build Chairperson, or Rev. Melissa Self Patrick at (205) 933-3709, if you have questions and to let us know of your plans to volunteer.
Participate in special call for members to stock the food pantry shelves for the holiday season. You can also make a financial contribution to pay for the purchase of fresh and frozen food to supplement the non-perishable items.
