The Gospel reading in Sgaw Karen

Our congregation includes a growing number of Karen (Ka*Ren) parishioners (an ethnic group originally from Burma) and so we offer several ministries tailored to their cultural needs:

  • Our 8:30 a.m. Sunday service includes Sgaw Karen translation. There is an interpreter (using personal radios) and parts of the worship liturgy are translated. The Gospel is read in both English and Karen.
  • Our Adult Sunday School offers an English Conversation Class. English teachers help Karen students with English practice, citizenship study and filling out forms or applications.
  • We can organize transportation for those without cars. Please call if you need a ride to church.
