We're a Jesus-centered community where people with and without intellectual disabilities lead and participate together.
WHAT: An ability-inclusive Christian church startup, experimenting and learning as we go!
We've been meeting monthly since the Fall of 2017.
WHO: We’re a community of people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities who are striving to embody together a truly inclusive church community for people of all abilities. We believe communities are not whole and the body of Christ is incomplete unless space is created where everyone is able to fully participate and belong, and to share their gifts. And not only to share gifts they have, but to share the gift that they are, through their presence.
WHY: To welcome and celebrate the gifts of everybody in a society where too often we are separated from one another. To create space for discipleship and real friendships across abilities. Because we are all members of the same body (1 Corinthians 12).
WHERE: Meeting in Los Angeles (Jefferson Park) at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles (2230 W. Jefferson Blvd., LA 90018). But check our Facebook event page each month in case of a location change. All our meeting spaces are wheelchair accessible with accessible restrooms.
WHEN: 2nd Sunday of each month from 1-3pm.
