International Christian Fellowship (ICF) provides an international community
in which Christians can grow in their knowledge of Christ, and inquirers
and seekers can learn more about genuine Christianity.
What are the activities of ICF?
Meeting for Bible study every Sunday morning between 9:30 and 10:55
AM. We currently offer two Bible studies at the same time. People can
choose whatever group seems best for them. Everyone meets in Room 160
for snacks, announcements and prayer, and then we break into the following
ICF-A: Gods Promise for the Nations (Room 160)
In this Bible overview, we are tracing the main storyline from Genesis
to Revelation. We will see how the whole Bible is tied together and
find practical application for our lives today. ICF-A is suitable for
both believers and seekers/inquirers, and involves a combination of
lecture, big group discussion, and small group discussion around the
tables including an easier English table. Led by Jay Lester.
ICF-B: How the Church Developed and Grew (the Book of Acts)
This is a class for international students, scholars and family members.
Sessions are held around a table and follow a format that includes reading
the Bible together and answering prepared questions related to the passage.
ICF-B is especially suited to internationals who are new to the Bible
and who want to improve their English conversation skills. Led by Bob
& Sandra Jackson.
In addition to our Sunday morning activities, we have various social
and recreational activities, and we partner with others in trips and
