Our Event Schedule

We have a number of exciting activities coming up this semester and we would love for you to join us!

We will send out more information via email as each of these dates approach to give you all the details. You can also check back for updates, visit our Facebook page at IFG Edmonton - International Friendship Group or email Melissa at mchettle@ivcf.ca

Some other possibilities for fun gatherings could be baking nights, an evening of sharing about the countries and communities we come from, a conversation between our group and other religious groups, and more!  Have a look at what we have coming up! 

Come and visit us at 8901 HUB Mall - you can make an appointment to chat with us... we don't have official office hours yet.

Activities in October

Do you want to go biking?  Do you want to work out?

Boon is one of our IFG volunteers who likes biking and working out.  He has two extra bikes.  If you and a friend want to go biking with Boon, contact him at boonlchew@gmail.com.  Boon works out at the Kinsman Sports Centre from 11 AM to 1 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  He could pick you up at the university to work out together.  You would only need to pay the fee to work out at the centre.  Contact Boon at boonlchew@gmail.com

Ongoing Activities

We hang out on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM currently on Zoom for video clips from The Chosen followed by Bible discussions.  Normally we would meet in HUB mall and have snacks or supper together but the university is not allowing that currently :)  Contact us for more information at jsiebert@ivcf.ca
