The English Speaking Center is an important mission of the church that has served our community for over 30 years. It focuses its resources on spreading the love of Christ to people outside of our congregation.
This opportunity is unique in that twice a week we come in contact with over 70 adult English language students who come to our church to learn English, to participate in Monday morning devotionals and who are part of our tight knit community. In each class we make sure that our students learn not only English but that they are also exposed to a Christian environment dedicated to living the word of Christ.
Our volunteer teachers are committed Christians, most are from our own congregation, and through their dedication and love they support the creation of a safe environment where students learn English, friendships flourish and our church serves as a shelter for many.
I am convinced that this is an important way to serve our Lord. To love our neighbor is a commandment given to us by Jesus himself. The English Speaking Center offers us an incredible opportunity to do that in many ways.
The satisfaction that we feel as leaders and teachers in serving our fellow human beings is very rewarding and for this very reason many of our teachers serve for years.
I encourage you to visit our center and invite you to volunteer as a teacher if God is guiding you to do something for your community and if you are looking for ways to serve your neighbor.
