Because 80% of individuals with developmental disabilities don’t know Jesus.
Jesus Cares Ministries (JCM) is a ministry of The Lutheran Home Association. JCM assists congregations in reaching out to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities—including their families and communities—through Bible classes, worship and fellowship, and spiritual support.
This spiritual care meets a very real need for people like Gavin, a young man who has severe autism. It has always been hard for him to participate in church services because he can’t speak. And being in a louder environment with a lot of people can be very stressful for him.
But as a believer, Gavin longs to worship and fellowship with other Christians. That’s why he’s so grateful for the ministry you help provide through JCM. Gavin regularly attends Worship at the Cross—JCM’s service tailored for people with developmental disabilities. He also goes to a special JCM Bible study at his local church every month.
Your gift will help to keep the Word of God a central part of the lives of individuals with special needs, like Gavin.
