ESL English Day Camp for Refugee Children

July 24-29  10:00am – 2:00pm @ Dearborn Free Methodist

This day camp will provide elementary age refugee children space to learn and practice English in a safe and fun environment.   Dearborn Free Methodist Church has made significant investments and has significant relationships with refugee families in our community.  This is yet another opportunity to tangibly demonstrate the love of Jesus, loving our neighbor, as Jesus modeled for us.

If interested in helping, mark your connection card or contact Megan Weber pastormegan@dearbornfmchurch.org.

Your Food Pantry donations are feeding those in need.  THANK YOU!  We thought it might be helpful if we let you know items we currently could use on a weekly basis.  We are asking for donations of:

·         beef ravioli

·         boxed cereal

·         pancake mix

·         rice side dishes

·         canned chicken

Donations can be placed in the wooden food pantry box in the foyer or financial contributions can be made by designating “Benevolence” on your envelope.
God Bless and Thank You!
