Local Mission and Service Partners

Local Mission and Service Partners

page_name_line

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others.  1 Peter 4:10

We partner with and support the fundraising events of many local organizations. We hope that anyone who attends our church, or any church for that matter, finds a place to worship; a small group or ministry that will help them grow; and somewhere to serve.  Just as when Jesus encountered a new disciple, He would immediately engage them in a level of service appropriate for their spiritual maturity.

In 2014, our volunteers were a part of 856 people, from other churches and the community, who came together to pack enough food to feed 533 children for an entire year as a part of Feed My Starving Children efforts! There are many service opportunites available, see the MFI volunteer page on their web site for more information.

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.

IRPC has been privileged to be a part of this with many of our members packing boxes each Christmas and acting as a relay and consolidating station for area collections.
