Many missionaries have come out of our fellowship over the years. This is a legacy in which we can take pride, and it can motivate and encourage us to continue this great tradition.
The high example of previous generations should be the motivating factor for successive generations to support missions through praying, giving and going.
In addition to foreign missions, our church is also engaged in local ministries and events that touch the hearts of internationals that live in communities around us. It is, therefore, possible to be active in an international ministry here in Norman.

"Our international ministry seeks to minister to people of all countries, cultures and races, showing them the love of Jesus and the acceptance of the Christian community."
Friendship International is ESL instruction for non-English speakers. We offer four different levels of assistance to those who need to learn English. Classes meet each Thursday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and are free to the participants. For more information, call 321-1753.
Each year we participate in the FIS host Program at OU. Families in our church host International students that have come to OU to study. We help them adjust to our city and include them in activities that make them feel at home here. Students do not live with the host family, they live in campus housing. If you would like to be a Host, call 321-1753.
We have an international home life group that meets the first and third Friday night of each month at 7 p.m. for dinner and fellowship.
Our International Friends Sunday School class meets each Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m.
