One of our church's main area of service and ministry is International Hospitality. Students and scholars from all over the world come to Boston for short-term programs. Many are looking for friendship, curious about American culture, and open to spiritual conversations. Many of them also leave their families behind, which is a huge cost for this opportunity. Others bring their families with them, but the cultural and language barriers make for a challenging experience. Our Conversational English classes are a wonderful experience for them to be a part of, and this holiday season we want to do more. We're hosting a party, but it will be more than just a party! Not only will it be a great party for the international students and their children, but we'll also be wrapping gifts for the children of students who are back in their home countries! We can't think of a better way to show radical love and hospitality to these international friends of ours, and our hope is that it will help them experience the love of Christmas in a powerful and transformative way.

To pull this off, we'll need our community's help! It will entail preparing food, helping with crafts and activities for the kids, shopping for and wrapping gifts, and more! If you are able to join the team, please email walt@highrock.org
