What is the Able church?
The Able Church is made up of people with various disabilities and others who support our community. Our goal is to fulfill the call God has on our lives, to serve and glorify Him. Our core message is that God made me, God loves me and God has a plan for my life.
More about The Able Church
The Able Church embraces people with disabilities, their caregivers, families, employers, and friends. We allow people with disabilities to play a major role in the way our church is run. Defining disability as people who need a little help, The Able Church embraces and promotes the many talents represented by our members. People with disabilities preach the Word of God, lead music, conduct offerings, help with special music, and perform other church responsibilities. Our church has a strong emphasis on the preaching of the gospel and the teachings found in the Word of God. We are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ as found in Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the good news. It is God’s power. And it will save everyone who believes… and we firmly believe that there is power in His name to save.
Our church services are somewhat unconventional as compared to many mainline church services. We incorporate teaching opportunities through skits, puppets, object lessons, group activities and other creative measures. Our objective is to create teaching moments that maximize the impact to cognitively disabled people. After our church service from 7:30 to 8:00 pm we have a snack time where our members socialize and create a stronger community.
