Winter Getaway is a weekend trip IFC holds. During Winter Getaway you can take two days to get out of town to relax out in nature.  You will have the opportunity to hang out with friends, play games, and learn about Jesus. 


Sometimes during the month of March, the Easter holiday will fall in this time.  Easter is an important day for followers of Jesus as it is a time to remember what he did for us.  Many family groups will hold a special teaching, or attend a Easter church service during this time. 


April is when we have our End-of-the-Year BBQ.  At the bbq, it is a time of food and hanging out with IFC friends you have made throughout the year.


During the summer time, we still hold regular IFC Family Groups, but some groups may take a break. Even if your group is taking a break, you are welcomed to join another group for the summer time.  Along with regular family group, we will do events such as a pool party and game night, camping trip, and other social events throughout the summer.
