On Sunday, Marlene and Zach, who lives with Down syndrome, led the welcome time at our church.
Zach’s speech can be hard to understand, so Marlene and his mom got creative and used a bitmoji presentation to guide the welcome. It was very cool—light hearted, but also super respectful of Zach, and a perfect way for him to communicate clearly.
(There was one problem… they couldn’t find any bitmojis of people with Down syndrome! Hmm… any artists out there who could fix that?)
Some serious points to Marlene, Zach, and Zach’s mom for creativity!!
You can see a few slides from their presentation below. WE HAVE PERMISSION TO SHARE THIS PRESENTATION, so contact us if you’d like to modify it for use at your own church.
