Join IHS on
Here's how you can follow the way of love with us at IHS and what membership in our congregation looks like
No matter where you have been in your life's journey, you are invited to pause, listen, and choose to follow Jesus. As our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, says, how can you turn each day like a flower in the direction of the sun, toward the light and love of Jesus?
If you have never been baptized, that is the beginning of the road for the way of love. If you have wandered far, confession and absolution will turn you back toward following the way. Speak with Fr. Ben our pastor for help in making a commitment to follow the way of Jesus.

Followers of all ages are students of our Master Jesus. After we turn to follow him we become his students and he becomes our Teacher. "Learn" in the way of love means giving Jesus' teachings authority over our lives, and that starts with learning his teaching. If you're looking for a place to start, try the Sermon on the Mount, which contains many of Jesus' teachings.
At IHS we offer programs to help you obey the command to love God with all your mind. Adult Forum meets every other week at 11am on Zoom. Our children gather for Sunday School each week at 11:30am for our This is Not Sunday School program, taught by our very own parents. Our pastor writes a blog and connects those themes to sermons each week at our online Morning Prayer, and often we post those videos on our website. You can also take a look at our IHS365 pages here on our website for more faith at home resources to grow deeper 365 days a year as a follower of Jesus.
Want to go even deeper? Let us know how you'd like to learn. We want to hear from you.
Prayer is the primary weapon in our arsenal in our daily struggle against evil, sin, injustice, and all the brokenness and pain in our world. Ched Meyers writes that prayer is the "intensely personal struggle within each disciple, and among us collectively, to resist the despair and distractions that cause us to practice unbelief, to abandon or avoid the way of Jesus.” Prayer also draws us closer in love to God. We pray daily prayer on our Facebook page most days of the week and invite you to join us. IHS offers a prayer partner program and we would love for you to sign up today.
Our principal worship is Sundays at 10am. Right now we're meeting on Zoom. Please fill out the form on this page if you would like to join us for Zoom worship.
We bless our community by loving one another as Jesus loved us and loving our neighbors as ourselves. IHS has several annual outreach ministries and service projects, and we need you to grow these efforts. Just a few we do each year:
Alex's Lemonade Stand in the beginning of June
Backpack drive supporting Stonehurst Hills Elementary School
Fall food drives feeding hundreds of local families
Lunch bag campaign for the Upper Darby Life Skills Center
Being a follower of Jesus means putting your gifts, skills, passions, and interests into action. What good do you see that needs to be done? Join us on the way of love and help us in our mission of healing and reconciliation as we strengthen and restore all people in unity to God and each other in Christ.
