We desire to lead you and your family to hope in God in this midst of this Coronavirus community and global crisis. We remain committed to our ministry's vision and purposes.
However, our ministry strategies have changed. To learn more about our current strategies and our resources to help you in this season, please click here. Our COVID-19 page offers full explanations from our Lead Pastor on these important changes.
A Life Group is a group of established and/or new friends that choose to live in community in their normal rhythms of life and be intentional towards spiritual growth together. ICC Life Groups are self initiated, self identified, and shepherd accountable. They can meet online, in person, or even a hybrid of the two. Click here to learn more and how you can be a part of a group.
We have officially launched Together We Care! Together we are caring for our community and the nations! In this season of COVID-19 and all of its implications on our lives, we are seeking to cultivate authentic and organic mission. This season may not be marked by your participation in a short term mission trip or in one of our normal rhythms of connecting with a Local Ministry Partner, but it is no less missional! Together through our personal Gospel sharing, life group outreach, and generous giving, mission is expanding! Click here to learn how you can care for our community and the Nations!
You have an opportunity to care for our local community!
Shelby County Schools is hosting Operation Warm Hearts, a winter clothing collection drive for new coats and winter gear for students. Winter weather impacts student attendance because many students don’t have the appropriate clothing to keep warm during the cold winter months. Thankfully, Operation Warm Hearts has helped provide thousands of coats and winter clothing items over the past five years to the students who need them most.
You can be a part of help the students in our community by donating new winter weather clothes (such as coats, jackets, hats, scarves, gloves, etc)! Sizes can be for a child of any school age. Bring your donations to ICC before December 1st and they will be brought to the collection drive. Contact Chris Memminger at email@example.com for more information!

ICC men, you are not too late to join our Men's Bible Collective!
We are so excited about the launch of ICC Men's Bible Collective! Our earnest desire is to see men grow in biblical foundations, godly character, and leadership influence.
We want to see strength in faith and community among our men. This is primarily a training opportunity for you to grow in faith, character, and leadership. However, there will also be a time of worship, testimony, and fellowship weekly with other men from ICC.
This group meets weekly on Thursdays, 6am-7:15am. There is a Zoom option for those desiring to virtually attend! This group is not a Life Group and is intended to supplement your discipleship process. Breakfast will be provided as you leave the building.
Health screening and masks are required before entering the building. Have questions? Come this Thursday and ask them!

AFTER COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: ICC has been a long-time partner with St. Jude's Target House to serve their families in our community. For years, we have provided a consistent group to offer crafts and hope to families. We take a group of volunteers the third Monday of each month in an effort to give kids a couple of hours to just "be a kid" and forget about the difficulties they are facing. Time at the Target House is one of the most rewarding experiences. Our ministry event begins at 6:00pm and will last no more than two hours. The Target House is located at 1811 Poplar Avenue in Midtown. It is best to enter from the side entrance on McLean and proceed to the back of the building entrance. Sign up online.
DURING COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: : Join us this Friday at 6:30pm for a time of teaching, sharing, and community!

For more information, contact Rob Hodum, Celebrate Recovery ministry leader, at email@example.com.
Celebrate Recovery is practicing social distancing protocols as well as providing mandatory face maks for every attender. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing any symptoms including fever, nausea, or respiratory symptoms, please contact Rob Hodum for online resources.

AFTER COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program with foundations firmly established in Biblical truth. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery offers participants a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, and healing through Jesus Christ. Whether it be addiction, anxiety, alcoholism, abuse, abandonment or anything else, there is no problem too big or too small that we cannot face together as a Celebrate Recovery community. Join us Fridays at 6:30.
