Every first Thursday of the month at 5:30pm we host a special worship service here at St. Paul for those with special needs and their families. We know that an ordinary service on Sundays has a lot of barriers that can keep those with disabilities from understanding or being able to participate in normal worship without feeling lost or confused. Families may feel self-conscious that they do not belong or that it is just too hard to attend worship and take care of their relative or friend with a disability.
It is for those reasons that we have started our special service for those with learning and developmental disabilities and their families. This service contains the same content that any regular service would have. You will hear about how God loves us and forgives our sins. You will have the chance to sing, to pray, and participate in the devotion. At the same time, this service is simplified, clear, and consistent so that it is easy to follow and doesn't leave you or your loved one behind. We also encourage interaction, conversation, and instrumentation! No one should feel embarrassed for adding their voice or instrument to the service and to the singing.
All in all, we would love to have you and your loved ones join us for our special service on the first Thursday of every month at 5:30pm called "Worship at the Cross," part of our Jesus Cares Ministry. If you have any questions, would like to request a prayer, or simply would like to touch base with our pastor, please call at 715-460-3148 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God be with you!
