DisAbility Ministries Focus Group

April 23, 2016 - 09:00 AM / 12:00 PM


University UMC (Irvine, CA)

The Disability Ministries Committee of The UMC is writing a book under contract with Discipleship Resources to be used to train clergy, lay speakers, and other lay people.

This book will take up where the UMW Disability Study left off! Sharon McCart is writing the chapter on worship and Christian Education and needs help to refine and perfect her work, including learning activities. Since 20% of the population has a disability of some kind, we need to know how to in worship and study in ways that include and not exclude those of us with diverse learning styles and needs.

This focus group will help Sharon to write a more effective chapter by letting me know which questions have not been answered, what material is unnecessary, which learning activities work and which don’t, etc.
