Family Matters Workshop

On Saturday March 16, 2019 Deaconess Diana Rice from St. Martin and ELMS, attended the Family Matters Workshop at Lansing Community College (sponsored by C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Hand and Voices) . This one-day workshop was created for children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and their families. What a great event for all who attended.

Tutoring Program

Posted on

This past summer Ephphatha Lutheran Mission Society started a tutoring center for children in the Deaf community that will give them an opportunity for one on one teaching in American Sign Language throughout the year. So far there are 4 children and two lead teachers, one Deaf Education Certified teacher and one ASL Teacher who is part of the Deaf community herself. It is our hope to build this program and spread it further into the Detroit area in order to assist the Detroit public school system currently serving the Deaf community. Our tutoring center is located inside Emmanuel Lutheran Church and School 800 S Military St, Dearborn, MI.
