At Faith Community, our mission is to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ, and we want to do that as we go about the things we do every day as we go about living our lives. The International Friendship Program is an opportunity to invite international students at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls into the everyday things you do in your home and family. The program is available for individuals and families.
With the International Friendship Program, God is bringing people groups from around the world to us, providing the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with individuals from other countries, as well as demonstrate His love for them. So you can have them to your home for a meal or a holiday celebration, or if you’re going to the zoo or the mall or a sporting event, you can invite them to come along with you.
To get signed up with the program, you just need to sign up online. Search the internet for "UWRF International Friendship Program" to find information on how to sign up.
One of the ways we live out our vision To see renewed neighborhoods, is through support of the Hudson Backpack Program. Thank you, FCC, for your generosity in the way you are helping families in our community!
As part of the Hudson Backpack Program, FCC provides food and prepares backpacks for families in need at our partnering schools, Willow River Elementary and EP Rock Elementary. Many of the families have difficulty providing food for weekend meals. Backpacks filled with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items are sent home on Thursdays twice a month to assist feeding families over weekends.
If you’d like to help contribute to the backpacks this month,
Could you please also pray for the family who will receive the items that you will be placing in the tote bag? It’s important to have the tote bags returned by next Sunday!
