English Conversations

Conversations in English classes are ongoing and free. You do not need to be a “church” person to join a group. Attendees increase vocabulary, improve pronunciation and learn more about US customs and culture. Child care is provided for groups that meet on Sundays. Many countries and cultures are represented in the groups. All are welcome!

Classes meet for one hour.

Other Opportunities

We appreciate the fact that our community is rich with a variety of internationals, both temporary visitors from other countries and more permanent residents.

Our outreach to internationals includes, in addition to English conversation classes, Chinese Alpha, international Bible studies and invitations to special events at the church like the Christmas Dinner and Easter Breakfast. An International Fair is held in the spring.  

The church also sponsors the Wednesday evening Chinese Good Hope Fellowship.
