ELL Program Has Ended

Sadly, CHPC’s English Language Learners (ELL) program has ended. The term began January 23 and was to run through March. But after three weeks with only one student attending, it became apparent that this wonderful ministry had run its course. We talked with the remaining

student, and she understood. Fortunately, she has other options for learning English.

CHPC helped begin this ministry in 2009. Teachers and volunteers gave a lot of time and effort over the years. Our students came from all over the world and appreciated the program greatly. We had become a lot like family to many of them. Getting to know them touched our lives too.

One teacher recently wrote: “This has been one of my favorite mission opportunities at CHPC. At least three churches were involved when I first participated. At that time, the leaders put a lot of energy into promoting the program. The provision of child care made a big difference to some of the families. The other churches faded away, and the pandemic took its toll when we couldn’t meet. If the program is revitalized, it will need energized people who are committed and are able to promote the program around town.”

Although this is an end for now, only God knows what the future holds. For now, we thank two faithful teachers, Eva Stimson and Diana Stephen, coordinators Shannon Langley and Soni Castleberry, and volunteers Carole and Don Mead, who worked over the last two terms. We hope to write a summary of the overall program and include the names of all individuals and churches who were involved through its history. If you are willing to work on that, please contact Soni Castleberry.

Lenten Study for Adults and Youth

During Lent, Peggy will be leading a study on Living in Community. We will meet on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84644745803 at 5:00 p.m. March 5, 12, 19, & 26. The study is part of the PCUSA Follow Me adult series.

The church is a living community committed to gathering together across differences, feasting and listening together, uplifting those in need, and supporting those who depart. This vision of believers worshiping God together as they learn to live a life worthy of the gospel is strong evidence that life in community is intrinsic to being a Christian. 

What does it mean for us at CHPC to live in community, particularly in the last few years,and moving forward? How can we learn from Scripture and each other how to live in community better? Join us each Sunday in March and invite a friend. Let's practice being community together.
