We are really getting Excited!

The message for this summer’s Gathering is good news for us all; “In Christ, I am God’s Masterpiece,” taken from Ephesians 2:10. We are recreated, motivated and empowered in Christ for the good works God has prepared for us to do.

Eight church locations have scheduled events that will include 13 Friendship Groups, providing a Summer Friendship Gathering experience for close to 200 friends with intellectual disabilities. Connection Ministries is still able to add one more session in one of the open weeks listed below.

If you are part of one of these Friendship groups, be sure to hold the date on your calendar for your Gathering. You will not want to miss out!

Friendship Group leaders should begin announcing these dates when your group meets and begin identifying people in your churches that will lead the various support roles; worship music, food service, administration and setup.  We will soon send more information about the volunteer training dates.

We will also visit all participating Friendship groups during March to talk briefly about the Gathering and hand out applications.  Applications can also be downloaded at https://connection-ministries.org/application-for-volunteer-companion-and-friend-with-disability/.  If you would like to volunteer at a Gathering, or know someone with a disability that might want to participate, but is not part of a friendship group, be sure to contact our office.

You will have a great time!
