From Barriers to Belonging: The Church and People with Disabilities

  • Calvin College and Seminar 1855 Knollcrest Circle SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546-4402 USA (map)

What does it really mean for people with disabilities and their families (or anyone at all) to truly belong within their faith community?  This session focuses on ten dimensions of belonging and their salience to the inclusion of people with intellectual disability, autism, and other developmental disabilities in the full life of the church. The presentation will spur deeper reflection about the ways in which churches might welcome and weave people with disabilities more fully into worship, learning, service, and relationships that lead to a life of flourishing.
