Special Needs

Special Friends

 

We are excited to announce the launch of a new ministry emphasis at St. Patrick. We’re calling it Special Friends: Welcomed, Valued, Celebrated.

While the world’s approach to people with special needs is to abort and abandon, Scripture is clear about God’s own view. Every person is fearfully and wonderfully made and wanted just as they are (Psalm 139), and Jesus even gave preference at his table to those whom the world ignored (Matthew 14). Our desire is to set a safe, welcoming, fun, and inclusive place at our table where families with special needs can experience and enhance our discipleship at St Patrick.

Leena was amazing with Adam.  She was so sweet and attentive. He loved the movie projector and just hanging out.  Yesterday morning as I was getting him up for school he said “can I get my church bag and go to church?”  Tears!  So, yes, it was a good experience for him.  I know we may have a few bumps along the way but we were encouraged and so thankful for our church.
