Summer 2019 TMC Outreach English
30 Jul 2019: TMC
Once again we held summer outreach English classes to help us connect with Japanese people in our area of Tokyo. Five volunteers (two couples and one single) from three EFC of America churches taught classes Mon-Fri July 22-26. Nine young children with their moms (and sometimes dads) joined our morning children’s classes and ten adults attended evening classes. All except one of the children were new to TMC.
The team of short term teachers was awesome! In addition to using their teaching skills in the classes, their music and preaching abilities enhanced our Sunday worship services.
Our summer classes are a short term ministry designed to achieve long term local ministry goals. This year they are providing us with follow up opportunities during the rest of the year. Ann plans to start a monthly Sunday afternoon children’s event this fall for these new contacts and their families as well as for families with children who are already connected to TMC.
