Take a minute to clothe yourself in this daily frame of mind. Let your heart feel loneliness, isolation, and the quiet beckoning to be meaningfully involved in the church. Christian Special Needs parents are struggling to come to church.
As a Music Minister’s wife and mother of a child with special needs, I have a passion and calling to see the church fully engage Special Needs families. I hope this list will encourage Pastors who are already doing many of these things, and also open dialogue with Pastors who desire to specifically reach Special Needs families!
This is the one ministry I know of, where the struggle will teach us to more deeply identify with those we serve.
In the Christian life, we are amiss if we are pointing others to the best version of themselves rather than pointing them to God as the Master Planner for their lives because truly, God has a plan for everyone He has created!
Pray for Special Needs Families in your church and/or community who do not know Jesus or do not regularly attend a local church.
To have a good plan, plan alone. To have a great plan, enlist the help of others who share your love and vision for the ministry.
It was a Sunday evening I will never forget. When the service ended I thought to myself with relief, maybe this was the best night he has ever had. There was so much I did not know.
We must not allow ourselves to be in a habit of missing the gathering of believers together but must encourage one another as we see the Day drawing near. In other words, we need to do better on both sides of this matter.
