English School  

Fall classes begin on Tuesday, August 15 at 6:30 p.m. and Thursday, August 17 at 9:30 a.m.

First Baptist Marietta has been providing English-as-a-Second-Language lessons for more than 40 years. This ministry is vital to our community's immigrant population as they learn the language of their new home. In addition to language classes, we also teach citizenship classes to help students make the transition to becoming United States citizens.

Transportation and Parking Information

Students may drive to the church for classes and park in the lot which is off Dobbs Street and fronts Church Street or in the Mayes-Ward Dobbins Funeral Home lot on the north side of the church off Lemon Street. (If there is a funeral, students may be asked not to park in this lot. Ask the English School staff about other parking options if the parking lot is closed.)

On Tuesday night, students may park in the church staff parking lot beside the Welcome Center. Please do not park here on Thursday morning.
