We believe that we are called to pray and to work for peace and justice as we try to build the kind of relationships that nurture life and love for all.
We strongly support the denomination's mission activities financially, which include several non-local missions. However, mindful of the tremendous needs in our own community for "a hand up" and the opportunities for personal involvement, we strongly emphasize local mission and actively support a variety of local mission activities with both volunteers and financial resources.

On Sunday afternoon, CCPC members and others volunteer as teachers of English as a Second Language for recent immigrants. Small groups of students work with different tutors from beginning through intermediate levels. Emphasis is on conversation and vocabulary building, plus practical reading and writing with an introduction to American life. Classes meet Sundays from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Calvin Hall, rooms 350 A&B, 360, and 380. For more information about the ESL classes at Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church, contact Gene De La Torre, coordinator. To see when classes are held, visit the online church calendar.
