PICNIC IN THE PARK - JUNE 24
THIS SUNDAY, June 24th, IVC will be celebrating 24 years of being a church. So we're having a picnic across the street at Veteran's Park after service to just celebrate and have a good time together. The church will be providing and cooking hamburgers and hotdogs. We'll also provide all of the paper products, buns, condiments and ice. If your last name begins with A-L, please bring a side and drink, M-Z brings a side and dessert. Everyone bring games, lawn chairs, etc. Wear your IVC shirt if you can (also on sale at the church and picnic). It's going to be a great time together!
NEW SERIES "THE STORY OF GOD" BEGINS JUNE 24
We are looking forward to starting a new message series entitled "The Story of God". It will be an exciting time that you will want to invite your friends and family to. Pastor Miguel just completed his message series entitled "Courageous Love". If you missed any of this series, you can look under the Gather tab and watch past Sunday sermons on video.
SUMMER SCHEDULE - ONE WORSHIP
We ALL begin in the Main Auditorium together for worship during the summer. Our preschoolers, children and youth will be released to their classes after the announcements and offering. We will also ALL be checking into the Main Auditorium as we come in. That will allow our children to get the name tags they need and parents will get the ID tag to pick them up. This will allow families a time to worship together during the summer.
WATER BAPTISM - JULY 1
If you would like to publicly profess your faith in Jesus Christ through being baptized in water on Sunday, July 1st, please email us or call the church office.
WELCOME TO IVC - JULY 8 @ 12:30 PM
This is a lunch get-together with Pastor Miguel to give new IVC attenders an opportunity to learn more about who IVC is and our vision and our mission in this community. To see a short clip about this and to register, please go to this link.
DON'T MISS OUR LADIES EVENT - JULY 15
Ladies, please put on your calendar Sunday afternoon, July 15 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. It will be IVC's Ladies Hang-Out (Taste, Talk & Walk). Please contact Mai Zayas for more info.
VBS REGISTRATION IS OPEN (JULY 23-26) - VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED Our "Shipwrecked" VBS is taking place July 23-26 from 9:00 AM - 12 Noon. These will be 4 days of fun, freedom and excitement while learning that Jesus is the answer when we feel trapped, lost or just alone. Kids entering Kindergarten - 5th grade can come experience the power of God through worship, the Word and tons of FUN. Don't miss out. Register now and bring some friends too! You can also register to be a volunteer because we'll need at least a couple of dozen folks to help. (And there's lots of things to volunteer for that do not involve teaching the kids.)
2 NEW HOME GROUPS HAVE BEGUN - THERE'S ONE YOU WOULD ENJOY!
We already have 6 house groups meeting around the community that are going strong. And 2 new ones are just getting going - one in Pelham around the Ballantrae/Weatherly area and another college/career group in the Hoover area. We're hoping everyone will get involved in one of our HOUSE groups that meet in different areas. They always have food, fellowship, discipleship, prayer and outreach. Our CARE groups offer several opportunities to get specialized ministry. And our AFFINITY groups focus on a specific theme or demographic. Our IVC groups are where we believe that true health, growth and expansion will occur. Please go to THIS LINK on our website to see all of the groups that are listed and their details. You can also see all the introduction videos from the house group leaders.
GOT A GOD STORY?
As most of you have heard recently, Pastor Miguel loves to hear your "God stories" - something that the Lord has done recently in your life. If you have something you would like to share, please email him. He will not share this publicly without your permission and unless he feels it's something he can use for the whole congregation to benefit from. We hope to hear more God stories each week.
DREAM OFFERING 2018
As a community we feel God has focused our attention on 3 simple things: Loving God, Sharing God's Love and Introducing People To Jesus. Each of us have a part to play in doing this. Your continued generosity helps us get there by giving towards our Dream Offering. Our dream is focused into 2 main areas - PEOPLE and HOME. PEOPLE is all the places we meet people - small groups, compassion, youth, children, missions, hospitality, outreach, etc. HOME is referring to our facilities. You can give online here or through texting to 84321 or by giving in person at the church or by mailing a check. We have also set up a brokerage firm that can allow the church to receive non-cash assets. We greatly appreciate your generosity and obedience in giving.
