Disabilities Ministries Team Seeks New Members

HARTFORD (12/03/2014) -- The Disabilities Ministries Team of the Connecticut Conference is looking for potential new team members who are passionate about making our churches and congregations more aware and understanding of the needs of people with disabilities.

The Disability Ministries Team works to promote the UCC "Accessible to All" initiative, a program which uses study, reflection and prayer to prepare our local churches for extending God's extravagant welcome to people with disabilities.

Team members should have some experience with disability, whether personally or through family and friends. Please submit recommendations to Jacky Schofield at jaschofield1952@gmail.com.
