F.I.R.E (Friends In Relations Eternally) is the junior and senior high youth group of New Life Community Church in Coralville, IA. Our mission is to serve the community and welcome all youth from different walks of life. We do this by sharing meals, having fun Bible discussions, building friendship through many activities, leadership training, and most importantly serving our community through volunteer work.FIRE2

Our community work ranges from volunteering at elderly homes playing music or helping retired people to serving lunch at the free lunch program. Our “FIRE” burns when we work together as a group to make others smile. This summer, we are taking our “FIRE flames” from Iowa all the way to Ghana, West Africa to make others smile.

The purpose of our trip is to go serve; serve children in less fortunate school buildings, serve a clinic in dire need of medical supplies, serve an orphanage, and most importantly give to those in need. dinner

We are very excited to make this leap from Iowa City/Coralville, IA all the way to Ghana, West Africa to serve, but we need your help!

Please help by donating to these dedicated High School students who are leaving the comfort of their homes to make a difference in Ghana. Your donations will be used for travel expenses, school supplies for kids in rural areas and towards building a library in the village. Visit the Project page for more details.
