Discipleship Training

In line with IPC’s mission “to make disciples who make disciples,” Discipleship Training workshops are open to anyone interested in growing as a disciple and being trained to disciple others. Components include biblical teaching, coaching in discipleship and disciple-making principles, equipping and practice with simple, sustainable, and transferable tools, sharing stories of life on God’s mission, group discussion, and mutual encouragement and prayer.

Intentional Parenting
Wednesdays, April 12—May 17
6:00–7:30 pm
Cost: $20 (includes workbook and light snacks)
(PLUS a free copy of Visionary Parenting: Capture a God-size vision for your family!)

As parents, the most convenient and most challenging place to be disciples who make disciples can be right in our very own home. This 6-week video and discussion series by Doug and Cathy Fields is for parents to connect with one another, share their wisdom and struggles, and take away practical tools to intentionally parent and disciple their kids. Whether you are just starting the parenting journey or have been on it for years, we invite you to join this great opportunity to learn and connect with fellow parents.


Five Love Languages Class
Sundays, April 2, 9, 23 & 30  (No class Easter 4/16)
10:30–11:45 am
Jack Davis Room

Learn the “five love languages” and how Ruth in the Old Testament spoke those languages. David Cheng will show you how to assess your own preferred love language, as well as those of others. In doing so, you’ll be more able to communicate love, and to be loved more effectively.

Easter Baptisms
Sunday, April 16

Baptism is an important step for every believer. At all three of our Easter celebration services on April 16 (6:30, 9 and 10:45 am), we will give people the opportunity to profess their faith and receive baptism. If you are a follower of Jesus, but have never been baptized, we would love to help you take this step of obedience as we celebrate the new life Jesus has given us through His victory over sin and death.

Plan on attending a short meeting on Sunday, April 9, 10:15–10:45 am, to prepare you for your baptism on April 16. For more information, email Linda Maestas or call 949.786.9627.

 We look forward to celebrating this special day with you!

    Vacation Bible School
    July 10–14

    Grab your telescope and get ready to search the skies and God's Word. As Galactic Starveyors, kids will discover that the God who created everything there is — the visible and the invisible — wants a relationship with them! And from the very beginning, God had a plan to restore our relationship with Him. Through galactic games, epic Bible stories, and cosmic crafts, kids will learn that God loves us and will never leave us!


    Royal Family Kids Camp
    July 30–August 4

    Royal Family Kids Camp is less than six months away!  Help provide a week-long camp experience for local children, ages 7–11, from Orange County’s foster care system. The mission is to build self-esteem, model and teach the love of Christ, impart hope, and provide a positive memory for abused and neglected foster children from our local community.

    Volunteer applications can be found at rockharbor.royalfamilykids.org/get-involved. For more information, contact Peter Fyfe.
