We're honored to have the opportunity to serve our Indian friends and we’d love for you to help us serve in the following ways:

1. Be the Hands and Feet of Jesus

As our friends celebrate "Holi: the Festival of Colors and of Good overcoming Evil." We hope to serve them and their guests and share how Jesus ultimately overcame evil. Please consider helping to share this message on March 24th by:

  • Helping facilitate Games & Activities
  • Helping with AV
  • Lead discussion as a Table Host
  • Cleaning up after the fun is done (7:00pm - 8:00pm)

Note: Due to limited capacity in the venue, we ask that only those who sign up to serve food, or as a Table Host stay DURING the event. The set up and clean up crews should only stay for their appointed serving times.

Bring A Friend!
Share IFI's Ministry to Internationals with your Friends!

This is a terrific event to invite a friend to attend together with you so that they can see/experience IFI firsthand. If you'd like to bring a friend with you to this event, please let us know their name. We'd like to know who they are in advance so we can give them a personal welcome and introduction to our ministry when they arrive at the event.
