Local Mission Opportunity

Calvary Spanish Baptist Church in Covington is offering free English classes as an outreach program. So far 80 students are enrolled and there is a need for a few more people to work as coaches with small groups practicing pronunciation and listening to students read aloud. There is also a need for help in the nursery. Classes are Tuesday from 7pm-8pm at Calvary Baptist near Newton Medical Center. This is a great opportunity to help in local missions.
