Cornerstones is tonight- Thursday (Dec. 12), at 7:30pm hosted at the Blackwoods house. We are doing a favorites party.  Please buy three of your favorite things (same item) costing $5 or less each.  Bring them unwrapped to the party and you will leave with three new items to try. This event is open to all ladies college age and older. 

This Sunday is our monthly Fellowship Lunch.  Please bring a main dish & side or a main dish & dessert to share.  

Sunday evening is our quarterly Church Family Meeting. This will be an especially important meeting as we consider our church's vision and future, and hear updates from the Facilities Expansion Committee and the deacons.

Winter Conferences! High Schoolers & College Students, now is the time to get registered!

We are looking to have another Church Information Class in January.  Please speak with Jared if you are interested.  

The Dickens Players, complete with some characters you may recognize from IRPC, will be acting out various scenes from the story “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens this Saturday (Dec. 14) in downtown Lafayette.  There also will be a group of carolers singing favorite Christmas Carols. The scenes will be performed outside at various businesses along Main Street.  There are schedules available in the back of the church.
