Welcome to Hillsboro United Methodist Church! If you are searching for deeper meaning in your life that includes lasting relationships, spiritual growth and service to the world you have come to the right place. We offer a safe place in which to ponder important life questions within an atmosphere of support. Our hearts, our minds and our doors are open. We hope that as you visit with us that you will find a place to call home.
In Sept. 2007, Hillsboro United Methodist Church (HUMC) welcomed our first English as a Second Language (ESL) students into our building. We offered tutoring for adults seeking to improve English language skills. We offered quality childcare. We found entire families eager to participate on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
Over the years, we've been blessed to serve students from all over the world. While most of our language learners speak Spanish and previously lived in Mexico, we've had students from Guatemala, Columbia, Brazil, China, Japan, Viet Nam, the former USSR, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Iran. Our students are a beautiful reflection of Hillsboro today.
Volunteers come to our ESL program from many walks of life as well. We've had many professional teachers serve as wonderful tutors. We've had high school students serve as wonderful tutors, as well! Engineers, homemakers, clergy members, pastry chefs - many backgrounds come together with one purpose. Most terms (9 week sets of classes), about a third of our ESL volunteers are from HUMC and the remainder from the community. We offer training, materials and support. Often our volunteers express a desire to "give back". Through tutoring, both the student and teacher are blessed!
Adult English as a Second Language classes are offered on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00. Registration is $20 per 9-week/18 lesson term. Excellent Child Care is provided at no charge.
