Friendship Group is a weekly class for adults with developmental disabilities. An array of teaching styles and techniques is used to teach the stories of the Bible and to develop and enhance “friendships” with others in the class and the church. The curriculum is adapted to the particular needs and skills of the class and includes gross and fine motor activities and crafts, development of cognitive skills, music and other auditory and visual activities. We are committed to helping developmentally disabled adults and their families grow in their faith. New participants are welcome.
SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS
Throughout the year we offer special opportunities to study a topic in great depth. This year we are asking ourselves how our Christian tradition has contributed to racism in America and what we as Christians can do to change it.
During the Lenten season, the six weeks before Easter, we offer opportunities to gather, learn and reflect on the Lenten theme.
