Ideas for Faith Based Groups

 Small group?  Mega church? Something in between?  More Christian groups are beginning to reach out to special needs children and their families. Organizations such as  Key Ministry  and  Joni & Friends  are coming along side churches to walk them through the process. This is great news and much needed.  Thank you, churches!  Eventually, the children become adults. Similar to aging out of the school system is when special needs individuals age out of ministries churches have worked hard to put in place.  Here at  LOMAH , we are dedicated to creating opportunities for the adult population.    Ideas of ways to include Adults with special needs:   Host an event  Create an event  Form a weekly adaptive communication bible study group  Invite them into already existing bible study groups  Include adults with special needs in your weekend service (music, usher, greeter)  Offer use of your building for a day program  Partner with an organization to provide financial and volunteer support  Be a friend to an adult with special needs  Help with transportation   Make services accessible  Teach God's love in creative ways  Get to know the families and ask how to serve
