ANNOUNCEMENTS 

 

PLEASE SIGN IN
If you are accessing the church for any reason, please sign in using the sheet on the lectern in the front entrance way.  This is to let the custodian know who has been in the church and what areas he will need to sanitize.  It also provides us with a way to track in case someone within the church community has Covid-19.

PHOTO DIRECTORY
With businesses having to be shuttered and fined heavily if work was performed within their premises, we are delayed in getting pictures back to those who sat for them in February. IPC has been in business 40 years and works solely with churches. They will keep us posted as to when the back order is cleared. Thank you for your patience.
