Who We Are

Hundreds of international citizens have come to Edmond from all points on the globe to study at UCO, work, or make a life in our community. Others are couples who are building a life here, and still others have been here for many years but still treasure the customs and traditions of their homeland and enjoy spending time with others who share a common heritage.

The International Connection Group at Edmond’s First Baptist Church is a place for Internationals of all ages and backgrounds! We currently have about 10 nations represented in our department, and we would love to have you! So, if you are an international, or you simply like to learn about internationals, we hope you will join us!

What We Do

There is always something fun going on in our International Department! We take trips, have dinners together, play games, and so much more! Here is a list of our regular activities:

  • Sunday Morning Worship
    Meet at 9:30 AM in the Worship Center
  • Connection Group (small groups)
    Bible study and a Sunday brunch in Room 116.  Visit a Welcome Desk for directions.
