The church and the Gospel should be accessible to everyone. This series, Keys to Special Needs Ministries
, prepares you to support people with special needs and foster inclusion in all aspects of church life. The goal of special needs ministries is to unite people, both disabled and non-disabled, in the common bond of Christ’s love.
This booklet explores ways to help people who are deaf or hearing impaired feel welcomed and included in the church, such as:
- Providing visual cues and prompts during worship programs
- Using multi-sensory approaches to teach concepts
- Finding out what devices or tools can enhance understanding of the worship service
Make it your mission to be inclusive in principle and practice. By accommodating the needs of the Deaf and hard of hearing, the church can involve every worshipper in meaningful participation.
