June 10-17, 2019
San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Get ready for a great adventure! June 10-17, 2019 we are heading to San Pedro Sula, Honduras for a week of ministry, loving on others and fun. We are partnering with our friends at the Grace Dream Center to minister to the hurting and hopeless of Honduras.
Street campaigns, orphanages, villages, local outreaches and services at City Hope Church Honduras are all on the agenda. With some local shopping and fun thrown in of course!
Honduras is hurting. It is a country full of people who need hope, purpose and destiny. We have the incredible opportunity of being Jesus to a beautiful people. This is not a trip you want to miss!
Location: Camp Brookwoods
Alton Bay, NH
Coming up on February 8th to 10th is IFC Youth’s Winter Camp at Camp Brookwoods in Alton Bay, NH. This is a weekend that your student won’t want to miss. Not only will there be fun outdoor winter activities and games but your student will have the opportunity to be away from their normal routine and encounter God in a real meaningful way. We know it will be a life changing weekend for your student as they meet new friends, get to be a part of small groups and have tons of fun. Space is limited so you don’t want to wait for the last minute to register.
If you have an interest, want to learn about a topic or just get a group of people together around a fun activity then you are free to lead a Life Group. Come to the Life Group Leader Orientation on Sunday February 3rd in the Cafe on the 2nd floor.

God made marriage for a reason. He didn’t design it for lonely roommates, uninspired co-parents, or bored financial partners. He created marriage to give us life.

Christmas at International Family Church has been a favorite tradition for many years. This year’s Christmas worship experience will feature fantastic music, memorable moments throughout, and an inspiring message from our Lead Pastor, Jonathan Del Turco. Invite family and friends and come celebrate Christmas with us on December 23rd.
If you’ve never been baptized, or you have a child that is ready to make that public commitment to Christ, we have an opportunity for you coming up on Sunday December 16th. We’ll be having a water baptism as part of our worship service in the sanctuary during service. It’ll be a very special experience and something you’ll want to experience with family and friends.
We have a very special service coming up on Friday, December 7th at 7:30 PM with friend of IFC, Dr. Mary Frances Varallo. Dr Varallo has travelled the world for over 30 years ministering with a strong prophetic gift. God has used her to move in the miraculous and minister a message of destiny. It will be well worth your time to come out on a Friday night and experience the ministry of Dr. Varallo.
Parents, we’ll have Full Kids World available for your kids that night as well.

Matthew Barnett, Best-Selling Author of The Church That Never Sleeps and The Cause Within You and pastor of one of America’s fasting growing churches, is one of the most dynamic voices God is using in Christianity today.
Son of Pastor Tommy Barnett, Best-Selling Author, Church Growth Pioneer, and pastor of what Time Magazine considers one of the three largest churches in America, he has learned powerful principles of ministry which have gifted him in founding the Dream Center in Los Angeles.
The Dream Center began as a typical local church. But with the fresh vision and desire to impact an entire city that God birthed in Matthew’s heart, the church grew from 39 members at its conception in September of 1994, to reaching more than 30,000 people each week in the Center’s 40 services and nearly two hundred ministries today.
The Dream Center houses close to 600 people who are being rehabilitated for the glory of God. Over 40,000 people a week receive food and many other services are offered to meet the spiritual and physical needs of the local community. As of September 2003, there have been over 150 Dream Centers launched around the world.
It’s Red Sox Sunday!
During the Red Sox/Dodgers World Series this year, Pastor Jonathan made a friendly bet with Pastor Matthew that whoever’s team won the other person would have to preach at the winner’s church wearing the other’s team jersey! Pastor Matthew, a Dodgers fan since he moved to LA in the 1990’s, will be wearing a Red Sox jersey at IFC. We’re going to help him celebrate by wearing Red Sox gear too to help him celebrate our victorious Red Sox!
Date: November 1-4
