Student Ministries

Our vision at Student Ministries is for students and young adult volunteers to be adopted into the church community while they discover how to live life as a disciple of Jesus Christ by living “up, in, and out”  (John 1:14, Phil. 2:5-11, 1 Thess. 2:5-11).

Youth Lounge

The Lounge is designed to be a Sabbath night for kids. We believe that in the busy lives of students, they deserve a night to relax, have fun, and just be a kid. Because of this, The Lounge includes three key feature. Time to: hangout in fellowship with one another, play some crazy fun games, and hear a message on Scripture in order to grow in relationship with Christ.

Eikon

Wednesday Night Youth Group (9th–12th Grade)
7–8:30 pm
The Basement

Eikon is the Greek word for "image of God." We named our group Eikon because we believe we are a community called to action as image bearers of the King. God has called us to both prepare for his “future" Kingdom, but also to usher in his “present” Kingdom, and this is what Eikon is all about. His present kingdom, and this is what Wednesday night is all about. We have fun together, play some games, speak on Scripture, and have some small group time so we can discover what it means to be sons and daughters of Christ, made in His image to reflect Him in all that we do.

For more information on serving in this area, contact Erin Marschke at 949.786.9627, ext. 204 during office hours.

Friday Pizza Lunch

Fridays, during Woodbridge High School lunch break on the patio

Each Friday during Woodbridge High's school lunch break, IPC provides food for hundreds of Woodbridge High School students. The cost is $3 for two large, tasty slices of pizza and a cold soft drink. 

Our purpose is to create a welcoming environment for students who wouldn't normally go to church, and for our High School Ministry to model Jesus' example of serving by waiting on our friends.

Contact Sandra Smith to volunteer and for more information.

Student Ministry Interns

In partnership with Young Life’s Ascent Network Ministry, IPC engages college interns to work with our high school and junior high programs, August through June of the following year.

What is the Ascent Network? The Ascent Network began more than 20 years ago as an informal group of Presbyterian college level church campus ministries for communicating, networking and encouragement. It was an opportunity to learn about other ministries around the country and what their needs were for relational ministry. It exists to encourage individuals in their journeys with Christ, to develop leadership in the church locally and globally, and to mentor to young students in their faith and in their personal lives.


Child Protection Policy

We believe that God has called us to care for and protect the children whom he has entrusted to us. All adults working with minors on a frequent and regular basis at IPC will be selected, trained, managed, and evaluated in accordance with the selection and training procedures and guidelines for conduct set forth in the Child Protection, Abuse Prevention and Reporting Policy.

To obtain a copy of the policy, or for additional information, contact the church office at 949.786.9627.
