Local Missions: Literacy Program
ESBC Literacy Ministry’s mission is to proclaim the life-changing power of Jesus Christ in a practical and understanding way through using God’s Holy Word to improve individual literacy skills. We believe that the ability to read, write, and communicate effectively is critical to achieving our ultimate potential in both our physical and spiritual lives.
The ESBC Literacy Ministries include:
Adult Reading and Writing (ARW) - to help adult low-level readers improve their ability to read and write. The Adult Reading and Writing service is available by appointment only*.
English as a Second Language (ESL) – to help people to learn to speak English. ESL classes meet Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Tutoring for Children and Youth (TCY) – to meet needs of students (1st grade and up) who need help with school work. Tutoring is on Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. during school year.
Sessions are normally held on Wednesday afternoons and evenings, but other times may be set by appointment only*.
