Disability Awareness Sunday

Sunday, April 08, 2018, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

People with disabilities are part of our society. They are the folks that we call neighbor, friend, loved one, and colleague.  It is this time of year that we pause and become aware that people with disabilities are people first! Their disabilities are a part of their lives, but do not define them.

On Sunday, April 8th, we will celebrate disabilities!  We will be blessed to hear from our very own Don and Aida Baumgardner, whose son, Niko, is autistic.  This Sunday marks our fourth Disability Awareness (or should we say Acceptance) worship service.  Don and Aida will share their stories of life and faith with us at both the 9am and 11am services.  This is a Sunday to realize the importance of how God created us as unique, beautiful creatures, who want to be recognized as God's children first.  Everyone wants to be included, and learning about our differences helps us to understand and hopefully, accept each other.
