News in a Heart Beat!
The MIPC family and Pastor Shepp Lawrence welcomes you!!!
There's a class and a worship service just right for YOU!
Summer Worship Schedule
As you make plans for the summer, please make note of the special schedule we will observe for our Sunday morning worship services. Starting June 1st and continuing through August 31st, we will have two worship services each Sunday, with "contemporary" service beginning at 9:30 AM and with "traditional" service beginning at 11:00 AM. The half hour from 10:30 to 11:00 AM will be an opportunity for shared fellowship for worshippers from both services. Please note that the traditional service will begin at 11:00 AM per usual following the fellowship time.
The MIPC Session hopes everyone will take advantage of the fellowship opportunity to better get to know all members of our congregation. Our regular worship schedule with 8:45 AM start time for the contemporary service will resume on September 7th.
MIPC SUMMER EVENTS
Every Wednesday: Bible Study at 7:00 pm in the Session room.
Our FINAL Summer Rec is this TUESDAY (August 19) from 10-1 in the Activities Room.

CLOTHES FOR CHILDREN AT MATTHEW 28 ORPHANAGE IN HAITI - We are continuing our collection of cotton fabrics to make dresses and pants for the children at the orphanage. Also being collected are girls' tees (any color including white which can be worn under the pillow-case dresses for church), elastic, grosgrain ribbon, and buttons. After these items have been collected, there will be a "sew-in" for those who wish to participate-- (no skills needed except for machine sewing) — cutting, pinning, machine sewing, pressing, inserting elastic, sewing buttons, etc. Or if you prefer, you may work on this project independently. Your contributions can be dropped in the box in the narthex.
The Central Florida Presbytery and BIRP are sponsoring a mission trip to Cuba the first week in December. The group will be limited to 10-12 persons and will be visiting the churches in the Del Centro Presbytery, which is a four-hour ride from Havana in the agricultural area of Cuba. This is a "getting-to-know-you" and "making-friends" trip with much interaction with the members of the clergy and congregations, visiting their towns, and learning about their culture. Inasmuch as BIRP has this year started a partnership with the Del Centro Presbytery, it is hoped that half of the participants would come from the BIRP churches. If you are interested, please contact Diane Watkins of the Central Florida Presbytery or Cheryl Mahan, Pastor Shepp, or Frances Fernald.
Carepacks for Homeless – Consider packing several gallon size ziploc bags to keep in your car to give to people who are asking for food or donations. Suggested items: non-perishable snack items, bottles of water, toiletries (travel size items of toothpaste, soap, etc.).
