Special Ministries

Friendship

friendshipAt Friendship, we minister with people who have mental impairments, not to them. We believe that we serve each other, and by learning and spending time with each other, friendships are formed. We believe that everyone is created in God’s image and that redemption is a gift from God that is not dependent on a level of intelligence. We also believe that our church is complete only when it includes all of God’s own children and when all people are seen as equals-in God’s eyes and in our own eyes.

Time: Wednesday evenings 7:00 – 8:15 PM
