Deer Park Community Church held the first ESL intermediate Class and Chinese intermediate class which had a total 21 attendants including a reporter from a major local Chinese news paper.
Most of the students who attend the ESL class are visiting scholars in Chapel Hill or Duke University, and there are also Chinese residents in the neighborhood. They are very thankful to receive the service and one of them also are very excited to know the church has Sunday Service before the class and want to join in the future. The Chinese Class also has shown an increase of students of total 7 people joined that day. Some ESL class students also remained to talk to the Chinese Class students for language exchange. Through the class, the minister was able to establish good relationship with the students to invite them to the home meeting and also church program.
