C.A.R.E. Club (formerly known as English Club) starts August 8, 2019

C.A.R.E. Club (formally known as English Club) is starting August 8, 2019.    It is our attempt to “rebrand” our weekly gathering.    Session 1 of C.A.R.E. Club will be 24 weeks and consists of 6 lessons around each letter of C.A.R.E.     It is designed for ages 21 and under but we believe the content can translate to adults, too.   We will still have English Conversation for adults.

We are seeking guides!    Guides  are volunteers who will commit to work with a group (5-8)  each session on a weekly basis and provide encouragement and support.   Volunteers are welcome to come monthly for other roles like food,  greeters, monitors, and clean up.

The evening is designed to be a community event centered around a meal and relationships and a place of belonging and community.  We believe emotional healing and flourishing happens as a result of community support.   We welcome Muslims, Hindus, Christians, and Buddhists to C.A.R.E. Club each Thursday.
