Data from the 2000 census found that 20.9 million American families had at least one member with a disability. Many of those families don’t attend church anywhere because they don’t feel comfortable or supported.
What a difference the church could make in the lives of these millions of families if only we were welcoming and equipped!
If you want to start by honoring the special-needs families in your church and reach out to even more families in your community, Special-Needs Parents Appreciation Month can help. We will offer a bulletin insert you can use any Sunday in August. We will share outreach ideas you can use year round. We will list resources for accommodating different learners in Sunday school. Keep checking this page as we update information. And pray for the families your church can reach and for the spread of the gospel!
