Tenth International Fellowship (TIF) meets at 11:00 AM for worship at the Radisson Warwick Hotel (220 S. 17th Street), usually on the 3rd floor. Once you enter the lobby, you will see a flat screen TV that has the location for all meetings. Look for "Tenth International Fellowship".
We look forward to seeing you there!
