LifeWay Church is very active in the Federal Way community which has many different languages and cultures within its population of nearly 90,000. We actively serve in cross culturally to lovingly bring them the good news of Jesus Christ.
Friends of International Students
Friends of International Students (FIS) is a community of Green River College students dedicated to advancing multicultural friendship and building bridges of understanding with students from more than 40 countries. Students and volunteer leaders meet regularly on Friday evenings to share a meal, play fun, friendship-building games and practice English skills. Please check https://www.facebook.com/groups/FIS.GRC for photos and FIS updates.
LifeWay partners with local service agencies to welcome refugees who are being relocated through U.S. Government resettlement programs. Refugees are those who for reasons of ethnic, political, religious affiliations are persecuted to the point of having to flee their home countries. In many cases arriving refugees have endured years-long primitive living conditions in the camps and need specialized assistance in language acquisition, job preparation, housing and transportation.
Ethnic Language ministries such as ESL classes, small groups, and translation
Currently LifeWay volunteers teach weekly ESL classes at two Federal Way locations. If you are interested in joining an ESL class as a volunteer or student, or would like to help as a cultural companion, please complete the contact form below.
