Family Groups

IFC Family Groups provide a home environment for international students who are so far away from their own families. These groups give members an opportunity to share their lives with each other, express their needs, and serve each other.

Small groups of international students and Americans gather in American homes once a week for two to three hours in the evening. We share experiences, develop friendships, and have fun. Each week, we have a dinner together, sing songs, and study the Bible. Family Group members often hang out together after family group or at other times during the week.

IFC has family groups on different evenings at different locations throughout the week. You can join one that fits your schedule!

Please contact us for more information!
