WEFOUNDDisability Ministries Manual


Bridges is the disability ministry of Manor Church. A bridge provides support and connection and it overcomes an obstacle.

We believe that God has a plan and a place for every person in the church.  Regardless of what you can or cannot do, we want to  connect with you, and we want to be sure you and your family feel comfortable and welcome here. We want this to be a place where you can grow and serve , because every person has a unique, God given gift to share!

We recognize that one out of every five persons in our community has a disability, but only a few of them attend or are involved in a church.  We want to change this!  Our goal is to identify and break down any barriers that keep people with disabilities and their families from being able to fully participate in the life of our church. We know that sometimes that participation may require some additional support. Listed below are some ways that you can connect , grow and serve at Manor Church.
