the hands and feet of Jesus
Micah Team’s goal is to empower individuals, families and house churches to Live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. The Micah Team encourages all mosaicHousers to participate in our quarterly challenges. These are opportunities to “taste test” different ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighbors, city and to our world! For more info please email: [email protected]

4) Homework Club Tutor
Tutors sit with groups of newcomer children after classes and help them with their
homework. Staff are always present to support the tutors, and there are clubs for
elementary, junior and high school. You don’t need to be a teacher, but you do need to be
patient, a good communicator and want to help young people learn. Children can bring any
kind of homework to the clubs, but English, math and science are particularly important.
We welcome you to come up with creative and fun ways to help youth understand their
homework. Contact Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcommers for more information.
