This Sunday, June 25 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we’re focusing on disability awareness during our Christian-education classes and worship service. Our goal is to share with our congregation and children that we are a church that welcomes all people with abilities and disabilities. Also, we want to educate everyone about disabilities and experience what it may feel like to have certain disabilities. Our long term goal is that our church would have resources and trained volunteers so families of children with disabilities feel comfortable bringing their children to church–and not just children but adults as well. They are all made in God’s image and all have a purpose in His body, the Church. We’ll be teaching these main points in our children’s classes especially:
- God created us all perfectly with similarities and differences.
- God loves all people in spite of our differences and weaknesses; he has a a purpose for each of us.
- God teaches us to love like he loves and to be friends with people regardless of differences.
Come worship with us and celebrate the differences and similarities that God put into his body the Church!
