CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Thursday in Flour Bluff, Rising Tide Ministries and Corpus Christi city leaders will host a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Officials said the ceremony today is meant to celebrate the latest achievement for Rising Tide Ministries, its scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m. this afternoon at 9841 SPID.

Rising Tide Ministries is a resale shop three days out of the week, but recently also started offering free resources to the public.

On the first Wednesday of the month, you can learn basic computer skills; learn tips and tools to help find money for college every second Friday of the month; and learn a second language, career test, health screenings. This is all made possible by the grant the City of Corpus Christi awarded Rising Tide Ministries last July.

"When we received the grant, we purchased the desks, computers, computer software, textbooks. We also offer English as a second language and Spanish classes," Rising Tide Ministries Director Lisa Gerdes said.

Classes are free and open to everyone. All you have to do is fill out some paperwork which requires a name, address and your social security number.
