Did you know….
• Approximately 53 million people in the US and 15% of teens have a disability
• 95% of those with disabilities are unchurched
• Many families in our community with disabled children or young adults at home have stopped attending church because they don’t feel welcome or it just “doesn’t work”
Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes one of these (children) in my Name welcomes me.” Church of the Ascension has a loving heart and a welcoming attitude toward individuals with disabilities and their families. In the fall of 2008, God led us to establish a ministry that builds bridges to bring people affected by disability to Jesus.
We offer two programs for those with cognitive disabilities: A weekly Sunday school program called WINGS; and a monthly club called Capernaum Club. For more information, please contact the leader of both programs, Christina Carlucci.
