“I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:22 NIV
Hang around mission-minded Christians long enough and you’ll hear the phrase, “Unreached people groups.” An unreached people group is a population within the larger culture without an identifiable Christian witness.
There exists within our own culture a group of people who just might qualify as an unreached people group. Not because they don’t speak our language or understand our culture, but because they are marginalized or excluded from the church.
Throughout our community are families with members who live with special needs. These families often conclude that there is no place for them within the typical church.
I would like to believe they draw this conclusion mistakenly. Sadly, however, the typical church does not strive to make room for those who live with special needs.
Alsbury is not the typical church. This Sunday, August 30, we will focus on this particular aspect of our overall ministry.
Every fifth Sunday we combine our two services into one large celebration. We will gather for one service at 10:30. There will be no small groups and no 9:00 worship service this Sunday, August 30. There will only be the one corporate gathering at 10:30.
