English as a Second Language (ESL)
First Baptist has provided weekly classes in English for over 50 years. Usually 50-70 people are in the halls of FBC each Thursday to learn English. Classes are offered to anyone no matter what language they speak. Volunteers are regularly enlisted and trained to help with this ministry.
Note on ESL Fall Semester:
Due to the continuing risk of COVID-19, FBC will be not be hosting in-person classes for ESL this upcoming fall semester. Our hope is to return in January, though we will continue to monitor the pandemic, holding the health and safety of both participants and teachers in the highest regard. Though in-person teaching at FBC will not occur this fall, we are encouraging teachers to reach out to their students through phone calls, texts, e-mails, cards, and even virtual learning if they are capable. We are heart-broken we will not have ESL this fall, but we pray we will see our beloved community in-person soon.
