International Friends was established in our church in 1972. We minister to the needs of families in our multi-cultural community through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. International Friends assists internationals as they adjust to life in the United States. Students in the program improve their conversational English, learn about American culture and hear about the Christian faith. International Friends meets Wednesday from 8:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. September through May.
We have two hours of classes, and a refreshment break between class hours provides time for fellowship, announcements, Bible stories, music and cultural exchanges. Special programs throughout the year include a Fall Family Dinner, Fall and Christmas Brunches, Birthday Party, Spring Festival, and End-of-Year Luncheon. Students are also invited and encouraged to participate in all activities at our church. Nursery care is provided free of charge for preschoolers of our students and teachers.
