Disability Week encourages congregations to grow in becoming places of belonging for everyone and places to engage their gifts in ministry—with a particular focus on people with disabilities.
Christian Reformed congregations (CRCNA) and ministries are encouraged to celebrate Disability Week October 10 through 16, 2016. (These dates correspond with Reformed Church in America (RCA) Disability Awareness Sunday and with various disability organizations in North America.) Depending on your church’s calendar, other Sundays would be appropriate as well.
The focus of this year’s Disability Week is Employment of People with Disabilities. For more information and resources to support your congregation during Disability Week, click on Resources for Disability Week.
