Our city has become the home for many visitors from around the world. Many of the new arrivals find it difficult to build friendships and adapt to this different culture. It is the desire of our International Ministries to help them find a caring community where they can turn for help and support.
We offer a variety of opportunities for internationals to gather with us
Badminton is a popular game around the world and we open our courts to the community on Sundays 3:00-6:00pm and Mondays 6:00-9:00pm. The event is open to all at a cost of $ 3/person
We meet on the second Friday evening of every month from 6:30-8:30 PM to play games, share snacks, and discuss helpful topics:
adapting to a new culture, parenting, navigating public education, community resources, managing your money, etc… Some nights we watch a movie or enjoy entertainment together.
On the fifth Friday of the month we gather for a half night to pray for one another, our community and our world. Everyone is welcome.
We enjoy gathering to share seasonal and national celebrations:
Did you know that there are about 50,000 Indian living in the Twin Cities. Since 2016 we have been celebrating India’s Independence Day together.
Thanksgiving Day is a new celebration for many new arrivals to the United States. On this special holiday we invite “the world” to gather with us for a traditional meal and shared thanksgiving.
We share the joy of Christmas by singing carols at homes and in our
community. The carolers go on invitations and look forward to helping others enter the Spirit of Christmas. On Christmas Day we host an international worship service followed by a meal with flavors from
around the world.
On New Year’s Eve we have a unique opportunity to celebrate the passing year and look for God’s direction in the new year. Our watch-night service includes worship, the breaking of bread, sharing of testimonies and prayers for the new year.
We look forward to having you join us at one of our events. Please be sure to bring your neighbors and friends as we gather the world together in the name of Jesus.
