Join us Saturday morning to tour the masonic temple in West Lafayette at 9:30. This is a building we may be interested in purchasing, so your input will be very helpful! Childcare will start at the IRPC building at 9am.

This Sunday, we will be observing the Lord's Supper. You can help by preparing your hearts and connecting any visitors with an elder before the service. On Sunday evening we'll have our quarterly Church Family Meeting. Part of the CFM will be sharing your thoughts about the masonic temple with the facilities committee.
