Rhythms of Grace is a way for people with special needs to enjoy worship in their own way. The service was created so that parents could have a place where they could worship with their children without worrying about verbal disruptions or distracting movements and gestures. Our congregation includes families with members of all ages – from 2 to 45 years – and their parents, siblings, grandparents and caregivers.
At Rhythms of Grace we gather and write our prayers for the day as all are welcomed and made comfortable. We share a story from the Bible and then explore the story at learning centers, choosing from a variety of sensory and tactile activities adapted to each theme. We re-gather and break bread in a circle, and then pray our thanks and bid our friends goodbye until next time. Music is an integral part of our worship. The service is full of music, movement and laughter.
We meet every Sunday at 2 PM at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 1819 Heights Blvd. For more information contact Lisa Puccio, firstname.lastname@example.org.
