Friendship Class...

Often times when families have a member who is cognitively impaired, they struggle to find a church where they feel at home.  With our Friendship classes, your family can experience a sense of belonging, knowing that your church family cares about and understands your particular needs; a feeling of acceptance - that your entire family is welcome at church; and the joy of seeing your loved one flourish. Through Friendship Classes he or she can become an active part of the congregation, serving in ministries such as greeters or kitchen help.


Sunday morning Friendship Classes provide a safe, loving environment that include worship, singing, lessons, and fellowship while allowing families to attend Sunday School and worship services, knowing their loved one's needs
are being addressed with sensitivity.
