Worship events should not be just another challenge for families with special needs. That’s why Jesus Cares exists.
Studies show that children with certain types of chronic health conditions are much less likely to attend religious services.* Many families report that one of the reasons is because of how they are treated there.
Jesus Cares services are simple, short and designed to make each part of worship have special meaning, especially for people with cognitive impairments.
The next Jesus Cares event will take place September 12 at 11:30 a.m. The service lasts about 30 minutes and is held at Living Faith Lutheran in Midlothian. All ages are welcome.
In our services, we:
· hear a devotion
· sing and play musical instruments
· learn a short Bible verse
· grab a snack
· have fun!
Join us September 12, and plan to keep updated on Jesus Cares events through our Facebook group, Jesus Cares Ministry at Living Faith Lutheran.
For more information, call 682-282-8382 or visit www.living-faith.church. Sample services are also posted on the Living Faith YouTube channel.
