Special Needs

“For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.”  – Psalm 139: 13 – 14

We believe that God made each of us in God’s image.  This is a mystery we celebrate in our Special Needs ministry as we seek to build relationships and worship with our Friends with disabilities.  We know that for some, a disability can make attending church feel like a difficult burden, or raise fears that they might not fit in.

Please know that the Church of the Ascension loves and welcomes individuals with disabilities and their families!  

We strive to find ways to share our church community with all people, as a living example of the immeasurable love of God.  If you have a physical disability, or need to explore accessibility of the church service or programs, please reach out with your specific needs.

From September through June we offer two programs for adults with cognitive disabilities: a weekly Sunday school program called WINGS and a monthly club that meets on one Saturday per month called Capernaum Friends. Over the course of the summer in 2021, we are offering a few special events between or after services on Sundays. We welcome you to join us! Please contact Keira Fuener for more information.
