A Fabulous Fall

Cooler air.  Shorter days.  Leaves soon will be lighting up the landscape with brilliant color reflecting the glory of the Creator.

As we prepare to make our way through the last quarter of the year, I want to make sure that some key dates and events at Ingleside are on your radar. Of course, our weekly worship services, classes, and groups – especially on...

Back to School, Back to Church

Now that summer rhythms are giving way to school schedules, make sure that Sunday worship is in your weekly routine. Scripture is clear: God is honored, and we benefit when we gather with other believers to worship (cf. Hebrews 10:24-25). I’m looking forward to being back in worship with our church family this Sunday, August 15, and I hope to see you too! From Attender to Member If you’ve been attending Ingleside for a while, I encourage you to take the next step and commit to...
