Bringing people to Christ by caring and serving

Greater Hazleton Metro Ministries

 

     Greater Hazleton Metro Ministries (GHMM) is an outreach ministry to the Hazleton area’s growing Latino community.  Three United Methodist churches—Hazleton Diamond, St. Paul’s in Drums, and Conyngham—are the co-sponsors of GHMM, whose all-volunteer staff also includes members of other faith groups.  Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) to adult learners has been the organization’s primary focus since early 2010.  Other activities include a homework assistance program for school students, a citizenship preparation class, and a children’s summer program.      

     GHMM welcomes anyone who would like to participate in this exciting project, for which training is provided.  Volunteers are needed as teachers, teacher’s aides, translators, and other staff positions.  Interested persons may contact Lynda Habel (570-459-1115, lyndahab@verizon.net) or Gene Miller (570-788-3264, ewm1@psu.edu ).
