English Class Volunteers | Please consider volunteering to be a conversation partner for English classes at Fourth. No experience is necessary, just the willingness and patience to make a new friend with one of our English students. The commitment is a semester at a time (fall, spring, or both) for 30 minutes per week, either online or in person. If you are interested or have more questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kairos Course | Tuesdays, 7:00-9:00 p.m., August 30-October 25, via Zoom
Kairos is a nine-week online course that helps transform one’s worldview so the believer understands God’s purpose for every cultural group in the world, including those with few or no churches. This course clearly demonstrates God’s love for the peoples of the world and our call to be a blessing to them. Please register online via: www.epcwo.org/kairos/
