We love to serve our neighbors. Right now, we are able to do that in three major areas: ESL Ministry, Local Partnerships, International Partnerships.
ESL (English as a Second Language)
The English as a Second Language (ESL) ministry is designed to help non-English speakers improve their oral English communication skills. Our Sunday classes run for 1 hour periods, and each class cycle runs for 12 Sundays.
The class levels of beginner, intermediate, advanced, as well as academic English are offered per the need of students who register for the course. This ESL program is FREE OF CHARGE to anyone interested in participating in the program and Childcare is Provided. Click here for more information and to register.
Service to the Local Community
We are partnering wtih several community organizations to help minister to those in need in Poughkeepsie. Right now we are involved in projects with the Dutchess County Outreach, the Potter's House, and CareNet. Through these partnerships, we are able to feed, clothe, and make sure kids have basic necessities (and Christmas presents!), year round.
Service to the World
Samartian's Purse/Operation Christmas Child is a ministry that reaches people all over the globe to share the love and good new of Jesus. Through the annual Shoe Box ministry, medical ministries, and other important emphasies, SP/OCC minsters children and adults all around the world. Vassar Road supports this ministry year round with various missions projects, including Operation Christmas Child. (Click HERE to see what we are collecting this month!)
