Friendship club is a wonderful and exuberant group of people with cognitive disabilities. We get together every Thursday night from 7:30 - 8:45 mid-September through May. Our start date this year is September 12th! We spend time doing crafts, playing games and learning about the love of Jesus. We also listen to Bible stories and learn how they apply to our daily lives. The friends all love to take part in acting out the stories as well. We have events throughout the year, such as a BBQ, movie night and special treats.
To share God’s love with people who have mental impairments and to enable them to become an active part of God’s family. Friendship Ministries enables churches to reach out to people with mental impairments, their families and their communities. We strive to reach this mission through:
If you have a mental impairment or know someone who does and would be interested in joining Friendship, please contact us. We would be happy to welcome new participants into the group!
As helpers, we often feel that we are there to teach the students something; yet usually find we are the ones who leave having learned something about life. We are blessed by the love, openness and simple faith each of our friends show us.
We encourage you, whether in Friendship group or anywhere else, to open your hearts to people with disabilities. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in volunteering with us, we would love to hear from you.
