Sign Language

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Exter has been doing the classes on Facebook. You can go to our public Facebook page at Facebook.com/polelinebaptist and view the past videos. Click on the left side “Videos”, click on “Video Library”, under Search, type in “Sign”, hit enter, and you will find the lessons from March 16, 2020 to May 18, 2020. The new season will start with the schedule below. Watch this site for updates as to whether the classes will be in person or on Facebook again.

At our church services, all aspects of the service (singing, message, announcements, etc.) are interpreted into sign language to enable the deaf and/or hard-of-hearing to worship our great God with us.

Our Pastor, Exter, is a very skilled interpreter and is assisted by a number of others in our congregation who have learned sign language in order to meet the needs of those in our church family and to reach out to others in our community.

Sermons

Most sermons are interpreted into sign language and can be found on our Vimeo site.

Sign Language Classes

For a number of years, Pastor Exter has been teaching sign language classes from September thru May at our church. We welcome you to join the growing group for this.  Classes are Monday nights from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. and generally follow the public school schedule.

The first classes (in September) will be for beginners to learn the manual alphabet and numbers. After that, both beginners and advanced signers are welcome to join in on the classes. Each class will focus on learning new vocabulary and spend some time playing a game or other fun activity to reinforce the new vocabulary.

The cost is $3 (one time for the year) to help defray the cost of the photocopies (of vocabulary sheets) you will receive during the year.

There is no need to register for the class. Just join others in the church Multi-Purpose Room for the classes you are able to attend. You can start attending the classes at any time, but as the year progresses, certain knowledge will be assumed.
