ESOL Winter semester
Mondays & Wednesdays 
Jan 8 - Mar 21 • 7 - 9 p.m.

Have you ever felt even the smallest desire to proclaim the Good News of the Lord, to show compassion to the foreigner, to help the sojourner in a foreign country, to show Christ’s love to those who may have never met Him?

We invite you to join us for the winter semester of ESOL. Can you give an hour or two? One day? An entire semester? There are many ways to experience ESOL. You can prepare a meal; stay and have dinner and conversation or teach class.
