Faith is a gift from God that does not depend on any level of human intelligence.


Our program model encourages the development of one-on-one, personal, and meaningful relationships: true friendships.


We long for the day when people of all abilities are fully accepted—and expected—in the Body of Christ.

Noel, Mentor

“We’ve used God, Our Father, Jesus, Our Savior, and when we realized we are coming to the end of The Spirit, Our Helper we just about died! We are really happy with this material, and pleased to find that more is available.”

Elsie, Group Leader
