River Park Church
Our Friendship Group at River Park Church is a special ministry for developmentally challenged people ages 18+ in our neighbourhood. Each handicapped person is matched, one-on-one, with a committed volunteer.
The goals of our Friendship Group are to provide a safe environment for our handicapped friends in which they can grow in their knowledge of God and His word, experience a sense of belonging to Christ’s body and commit their lives to Christ. We endeavor to bridge the gap between people with disabilities and the community – breaking down stereotypes and walls, reminding each other that we are all part of God’s diverse family, and that we all have gifts to bring to the table.
At the moment we have around 25 individuals with special needs and 25 mentors/volunteers. But we are always looking for more volunteers to help with our ministry. If you would like to become a mentor/volunteer, you don’t need any formal training in this field, or even any previous casual experience to be a part of this ministry. We encourage people to join us for an evening if for no other reason than to see what our group is about. You will have fun with us – that we can promise!
