ABLE (Accepting, Believing, Loving and Embracing) is a ministry dedicated to special needs and disabled individuals within the church and community. The ABLE department hosts a variety of seminars geared toward equipping Sunday School teachers, other ministries, and church members with the information and knowledge on how to handle special needs and certain diagnosis. They also host an annual ABLE event open to the entire community and churches across the state, that encompasses an entire afternoon geared toward special needs. This themed event includes puppets, crafts, games and an interactive service.
ABLE holds support group meetings monthly, that are led by Judy Arrand ACSW, LMSW, a liscensed clinial therapist who attends our church. These support meetings provide an opportunity for family members and caregivers of special needs individuals to share their stories, get advice, and learn about available resources in the community.
