Since 2016, Special Friends Fellowship Club has provided community for special needs adults over the age of 19 in West Tennessee. It is a diocesan group whose partnering faith communities include All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Barth House Episcopal Center, Calvary, Grace-St. Luke’s, Holy Apostles, Holy Communion, and St. Andrews Collierville.
Four times a year, young and older parish members and youth from partnering churches engage with Special Needs Friends, sharing dinner, worship, and an activity. Bingo, disco nights, painting and craft activities, and even fall festivals have been extremely popular with Special Friends Fellowship Club!
If your church is not yet partnering with Special Friends, please give prayerful consideration to this wonderful program. The effort is minimal, and the rewards are great. Contact Janie Morris at 901-761-1020 for further information.
