2017 Tapestry Conference

The 2017 Tapestry Conference will be held October 20-21 at Irving Bible Church. Come learn from Dr. Curt Thompson as he teaches on the Soul of Shame. Examine how shame keeps us from being engaged in relationships and community. Learn how to retell the stories we believe about ourselves.

#GivingTuesday is TODAY

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. There are two ways that you can give today; your time and your treasure. Please email us at tapestry@irvingbible.org if you would like to bless adoptive and foster families by volunteering your time. We have many opportunities for you to volunteer from support groups to our annual conference.
The other way to give today is with your treasure. You can donate online or you can mail a check to:

Irving Bible Church
Attention: Tapestry
2435 Kinwest Parkway
Irving, Texas 75063

Your giving will allow us to continue to be a place of loving, supportive, and authentic community where we encourage and equip families along their adoption and foster care journey.

So would you consider making a gift to Tapestry today on Giving Tuesday?

Thank you and God bless you,

Ryan
