a year we host Respite Care events for families affected by disability. Come and work alongside us as we help care for children and teens with
disabilities and give their parents some time to "BREATHE". There are
opportunities for volunteers to help with set up and clean up, crafts,
games, snacks, music, and to serve as a "buddy" to a
child or teen with a disability. `The next respite is scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2019.
Sunday Morning Buddies
We want to always be ready to welcome any family affected by disability. There are opportunities for individuals who are willing to step-up and be a buddy to a child or teen who needs support during the worship service or in children's/youth classes, so that their parents/caregivers can take a break and fully enjoy a Sunday morning small
group and/or the worship celebration.
Adult "Ability" Class
This class for adults with cognitive or learning challenges meets at the same time and on the same calendar as our Growth Courses. It provides an opportunity for Bible study, discipleship, and fellowship at a slower pace and with plenty of time for discussion of individual questions and needs. All are welcome! For more information please contact Cheryl Vidales at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a message at the church office: 415-863-3382.
Training and Networking
We partner with Joni and Friends Bay Area for support and training and are helping to launch a network of churches in San Francisco committed to growing in the area of disability ministry. Visit the Joni and Friends website for lists of resources, information about international ministries, Joni's blog and more.
