Our Doors Are Open

When we say "Everyone is welcome" what do we really mean? A barrier in your community, such as the lack of ramps, can make a different point entirely for a person with disabilities.

Sometimes actions speak louder than words.

"Opening Your Doors" event includes seminars and workshops that will enable persons with disabilities and their families to participate in all aspects of ministry and outreach.
