Upcoming Events

Kibali Alive! ¯ Sister Church Breakfast Series
Join us for a before-church breakfast series: 8:30-9:30 on October 13, 20, and 27 in Fellowship Hall

As a Rwandan church, we are united with our Rwandan sisters and brothers in the Lord. Through our Sister Church relationship with Kibali Parish, we are actually one church family, living on two continents!

Want to know more? Come and learn about our Sister Parish and see for yourself what the Lord is doing in Rwanda. Learn about real people from Kibali. Meet Pastor Justin, Bishop Emmanuel and others who pray for us as we pray for them. Hear from some of our own who have traveled to Kigali to share their hearts, time, and talents with our Rwandan brothers and sisters in the Lord. Childcare will be available, if requested in advance. Stay tuned for more information!

Tuesday Night Fall Class Series - September 24 ¯ October 22 
Come join us for a soup potluck, worship in song and some fantastic teaching.  Classes offerings include:

IAC Fall Sunday Morning Class 
Finishing Well -- navigating life's transitions in grief, grace and gratitude

Are you facing significant transitions in your life, such as with aging parents or the loss of loved ones? Have you experienced grief and loss in your relationships or your job/career?  Do life transitions compromise your ability to make decisions or to move forward?  Then this six week class is for you.  Come explore with others the aspects of difficult life transitions, learning more of God's principles, experiencing His grace.
This class will be led by one of our own at IAC, Betty Barnett.  Betty desires to share life-giving godly insights gleaned through her own and others' experiences.  She has been a speaker, author, and editor for many years. 

The class will be from Sunday September 29 through Nov. 10, meeting from 8:00-9:30am in the Church Annex (across from church parking lot, corner house).  Snacks and coffee provided.  If you'd like to attend and need childcare, we need to know in advance. Questions? Contact Betty at

August Year to Date Financial Update

General Fund:
Budgeted INCOME YTD (Offerings, PEAR and Western network support , etc)  $255,000
Actual Income YTD $242,606
Giving Income is down $12,397

Budgeted Expenses YTD $294,890
Actual Expense YTD   $286,867
Expense spending is down $ 8,023
Our giving is down $12,397
Because our expenses are down our net deficit is <$4374>

Because most of the giving per month comes in the last 4 months of the calendar year, we need to see an increase in offerings to meet the remaining budget for the 2013 FISCAL year.
