Meeting regularly with a small group of other internationals and US American volunteers is a great way to learn more about Unites States culture and daily life. We also address larger life topics and the associated challenges we all face day-to-day.

Opportunities for small group Bible study are also available and provide a foundation for building deeper and more meaningful friendships. These friendships can enrich your life and contribute to your sense that Cincinnati can be a new home for you. No prior knowledge of the Bible is necessary.

Weekly gatherings almost always include eating a meal together and may include get-to-know-you activities, games, current events and other topics for discussion, singing and discovering what the Bible has to tell us about life. Please notice that we have a special weekly meeting for women.

We hope you will take the time to check out one of our weekly meetings. We look forward to seeing you there!
