All Abilities Inclusion Ministry
What is All Abilities Inclusion Ministries?
All Abilities Inclusion Ministry is our church wide effort to insure that persons of all abilities are fully integrated into the life and work of Everybody's Church. Our inclusive Sunday school program for students of all abilities ranges from pre-school through their teen years. The curriculum includes an intentionally structured program with a multi-sensory approach to teaching Bible stories. Curriculum is individualized based on parent input and staff recommendations. Our Inclusion Coordinators train and supervise volunteers who support students as needed. If you would be interested in learning more about this ministry, please contact Cindy Merten at 248.644.3380 x145 or Rev. Joanne Blair at 248.644.3380 x128.
