Forever Friends provides individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or autism, and their caregivers, an opportunity to worship together.
This program is intended to provide an additional support to our community, not to take you away from the church you are already attending. We desire to meet the worship needs of people with disabilities who have difficulty attending a typical worship service.
For example: Alex has ID/autism, loves music, but is nonverbal and at times makes loud youthful noise and flaps his arms. He doesn't sit well for long lessons. He needs a lot of visuals/video and hand-over-hand assistance for craft activity.
This group meets on a MONDAY nights.
