As we enter a new season in the life of our church, please keep our leadership in prayer as we search for an interim pastor for IPC. During this transitional time, guest speakers and pastors will continue to teach and encourage us as we wait in hopeful anticipation for all that God has planned for our church family!
In February and March, join us in welcoming these faithful men of God: Mark Roberts (Feb 11 & 18), Tim Avazian (Ash Wednesday: Feb 14), Mike Kenyon (Feb 25), and Bobby Schuller (March 4).
