Dr. Betty Jones, senior pastor of County Line UMC in Ellenwood, reports that the church's GED program has been approved and is now listed on the National Literacy Directory. The program officially began on January 13, 2016, and will run in 18-week increments. Classes are currently offered on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9 p.m. led by professional committed staff and dedicated church members. Registration for the program is ongoing.
The GED program is “free” to students except for a processing fee of $15, County Line is able to offer the GED at no charge thanks to grants and the generosity of personal contributors.
An Open House is scheduled for Sunday, March 6, 2016 from 4-6 p.m. The public is invited.
If you would like to make a donation to County Line's GED Program, checks should be made payable to County Line UMC, designated to the County Line UMC Community GED Program. The program is in need of several desks and two sets of moveable room dividers. All donations are tax deductible.
County Line is the second Community Literacy Program to open in an Atlanta-Decatur-Oxford District UMC. Flat Shoals UMC began offering a GED program in 2015.
