Disability Concerns helps guide and support our church to:
• think and act in keeping with the biblical call regarding people with disabilities
• break barriers of communication, architecture, and attitude
• establish ministries with, for, and by people with disabilities and their families

Church Disability Advocates work within the church community, identifying the needs of the church members living with a disability (and their loved ones) and together explore with church leaders appropriate ways for the church to respond.
If you have identified such a need, have a creative solution, or would like to become involved in disability advocacy at out church, please email the office.
