Meeting with Leadership

We will join you for a phone call, video chat meeting, or an in-person meeting to discuss with your leadership the value and practical logistics of welcoming people with varied abilities in your congregation.

Do you have a situation that you know you need to work to improve? We can observe behaviors, settings, and scenarios in person or through recorded video to offer you suggestions and a plan forward.

Children’s Education

We will work with the children in your children’s ministry or youth group to help them understand and include a specific individual with unique gifts and needs. This may include providing information to peers and families that honors and celebrates the individual, leading age-specific activities that increase understanding among peers, and discussing steps forward.

Training Staff & Volunteers

We offer a variety of workshops and training topics. You can also request a specific topic and we’ll build training around the needs of your community. See our page on workshops & trainings to get started!

Creating Action Plans

We will come alongside your church to create an action plan for including a specific individual or persons within your community.

Worship Service Planning

As you’re planning a worship service where you want to focus on disability, we can help you prepare or present:

  • Scriptural support and teachings related to inclusion and the gifts each person has to give
  • Written materials for readings, litanies, prayers, and devotions
  • Children’s messages on including and honoring each individual

These services and more are all included in our partner membership!
