A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of giving the devotion at our ESL (English as a Second Language) program. This is such a unique and needed ministry and I’m glad we offer it here at Frazer.
For those who don’t know, the English as a Second Language program is an on-going, mission-based, community ministry for adults that meets at Frazer each Tuesday night since 2003.
The program is from 7pm-8:45pm and meets in rooms 3201- 3218. We offer free English classes, free child care for children 5 years old and younger, and a free snack supper for all adults who need to learn or want to improve their English skills. No pre-registrion is required, and there is no child care available for children over age 5. Books are not required, but are available to students at a minimal cost of $20.00.
The largest number of our students are Hispanic, but we also have students from China, Egypt, France, Germany, Iraq, Korea, Laos, Russia, Vietnam and other countries. It’s really great seeing so many people from so many different backgrounds. We average about 65 students have around 50 volunteers each week. I am extremely thankful for everyone who supports such a needed ministry. If you have questions or need more information, contact Kay Bray at (334-277-5104).
