‘Signing for the Savior to resume

Senior Education Ministries Inc., in partnership with Terre Haute United Methodist Temple, will resume “Signing for the Savior” classes with instructor Patti Christy.

“Signing for the Savior” is a free educational program where sign language is done to music as a form of praise and worship.

The ministry’s goal is to show participants how they can find joy in life by using their hands to praise and glorify God. There is also a great need for those who can hear to learn how to communicate with the hearing-impaired.

Participants will learn how to sign traditional songs such as “Amazing Grace” and “The Old Rugged Cross,” in addition to more contemporary songs of worship.

The orientation class is scheduled for 4 to 5:30 p.m. each Thursday in the United Methodist Temple at 5301 S. U.S. 41.

A weekly love offering will be taken.

Returning students and newcomers can call Patti Christy at 812-249-8688 to sign up.
