This ministry is designed to reach the international/immigrant community here in Midland. First Baptist, in cooperation with other Baptist churches in the Midland area, offers English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to meet a very practical need for these individuals. One might think of this ministry as International Missions Without a Passport because we are reaching out to individuals and families who have come to us from around the world.While teaching them English is a goal of this ministry, it is teaching and showing them the love of Christ that is the primary goal. As with any ministry, volunteers are needed in any and every capacity from teachers to childcare workers, from record keepers to greeters, from prayer partners to transportation workers - the list goes on and on as God continues to broaden the vision for us to one day reach beyond offering basic literacy services.The classes meet once a week on the FBC campus. Contact Amanda Melchor for more information, 432-352-7053 or email@example.com
Classes begin August 25 and will be held every Thursday from 6:30-8:15 pm at FBC in D101/102 (use the entrance on the corner of Cuthbert and Garfield). Classes are available for beginning, intermediate and advance English learners.
