In-person worship has been temporarily suspended due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in our region.
We will have virtual-only worship for the first three weeks of Advent (Nov 29, Dec 6, Dec 13). Which will take us through the county’s “stay-at-home” advisory. Session will then meet again on Wednesday, December 16 to re-evaluate where things stand.
We encourage you to join our live-stream of the service at 10:30am on Sunday morning or watch the recorded video after the service.
Advent 2020: Longing
“Advent is a time of exquisite balance between the sadness of the mess we live in, and the bliss of the world we would like to live in. Advent is when we acknowledge that bliss is not the blotting out of pain with port and plum pudding, but a process, a pilgrimage, a pregnancy, and — amidst the chaos of the world’s governing — a cry for the coming of the reign of God” -Margret Hebblethwaite
Christmas Eve at IPC
In-person and Live-streamed services:
December 24, 5:00 pm & 8:00 pm
At this time Independence Presbyterian Church is planning on holding two Christmas Eve services this year. Both services will be in-person and live-streamed. Each service can hold up to 50 people in-person (25% of the sanctuary capacity) with COVID protocols in place. If you would like to attend one of the services in-person, please sign-up by filling out this form, or calling or emailing the office. We ask for you to provide contact information in case of cancellation due to the coronavirus.
Independence Presbyterian Church is an active Congregation of PC(USA). Come and worship with us. Be a part of an inclusive Christian community of prayerful, caring, mission-oriented women, men and children. We are located at 6624 Public Square in Independence, Ohio, which is on the western side of the square on Brecksville Road. Parking is available at the rear entrance off Elmwood Avenue. Sunday morning service is at 10:30am.
Due to COVID-19, the new church school year has been delayed. Stay tuned! We look forward to welcoming back young children and adults/teens to Sunday School classes – whether in person or virtually – in the near future. The IPC Choir is on hiatus due to COVID-19 as well.
