 To God be the Glory in all our music, worship and mission.  IPC’s identity is bound within the glorious worship of Christ in our sanctuary where we gather to hear God’s Word read and proclaimed and from where we are sent as God’s disciples.

As our weekly worship bulletin reminds us,
“The Service of  Worship begins with the music of the organ.  Through its power and brilliance may you feel the majesty and glory of God, and in its quietness, His peace.” 
 
The Joseph W. Schreiber Organ was dedicated in May 2012. Following were the various events associated with the dedication of the new organ.
