Grace Fellowship Church has a variety of programs available to families and individuals affected by disabilities.
Grace’s desire is that all would come and be able to fully participate in worship. In order for that to be true, we have the following available. Please contact us if you have any additional needs to help you be able to fully experience worship at Grace.
MAIN AUDITORIUM SEATINGWe have reserved spaces in the front and back of the auditorium for those in wheelchairs and the guest with them.
ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGYWe have PPA Receivers for those needing hearing assistance.
The Buddies ministry
The Buddy Ministry provides one on one teaching and friendship to children and students with special needs. Buddies help children participate as much as possible in the most appropriate Sunday school classes or other student ministries for that child. It also provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to worship together as their child is being cared. Anyone willing to love a child and help them experience the love of Christ can be a buddy! Training and special materials are available. If your child would be blessed by having a buddy with them for services or other events, please let us know!
Schedule: Weekly, during all worship services.
Friends Worship is a worship service specifically designed to meet the needs, abilities and gifts of teenagers and adults with disabilities who, because of their disabilities, would not enjoy the main worship service of the Church. This worship service is a beautiful time of worship, fellowship, and teaching.
Rest Day is a day designed to give Rest, Encouragement, Support and To love parents and guardians of children affected by disability. We provide a respite afternoon at Grace for individuals 21 and younger and their siblings. The afternoon
