Family Groups

IFC Family Groups create an environment for international students to be able to share their lives with each other, express their needs, and serve each other. Family Groups are hosted in American homes, and consist of people from all over the world. Once a week for a few hours in the evening, we share a meal together, sing songs, have discussions about God, the Bible, and beliefs, play games, eat dessert, and hang out. Family Groups are a really cool way to share experiences, develop friendships, and have fun! It really feels like a home away from home!
