GROW Conversation Cafes

English is an essential tool to build relationships and earn an income here in America. GROW provides ESL (English as a Second Language) classes for immigrants in Philadelphia. These English classes help adult immigrants develop more than just the practical skill of English, but they cultivate friendships and connections, supporting immigrant families to succeed in their communities. Once a month these adult English Language Learners (ELL) practice their English in the Conversation Cafés. These are held in Northeast Philadelphia one morning and one evening a month. Volunteers are paired with a small group of ELL students and given suggested topics to discuss. The following are the upcoming dates and times of the Conversation Cafes:


Monday, 9/26 @ 7:30pm-8:30pm

Tuesday, 9/27 @ 11am-12pm

Wednesday, 10/26 @ 7:30pm-8:30pm

Thursday, 10/27 @ 11am-12pm

 

If you have any questions or are interested in using your skill of English to gain cross cultural experience and develop relationships with our immigrant neighbors, please contact Gwen Rapp.

Food Distribution in Kensington

Operation Christmas Child

Collection Week: November 14-21, 2022

OCC starts with you packing a shoebox full of necessary items and toys, and it ends in a child around the world not only receiving that gift but hearing the gospel of Jesus. On October 23, Riverstone Church will provide empty shoe boxes for you to take home, fill with supplies, and return to the church by November 13. Everyone is invited to take as many shoeboxes as you can fill! These shoeboxes are then distributed by Samaritan’s Purse to children in countries that are unreached and remote. Each child who receives a shoe box not only hears the gospel but participates in a 12-week discipleship program, transforming families.

Would you like to volunteer to help? Since Riverstone is one of 7 drop-off locations in the Bucks County area, we will be collecting, counting, recording, and “cartonizing” boxes from the community at scheduled times from November 14-21. We are looking for volunteers to help with receiving and recording these boxes.


If you are interested, please sign up on online or contact Kristy Godwin if you have any questions.
