This year at Thru The Roof, we will be studying Luke 2.
And on December 6, we’ll be having our Christmas Party!
We have three Bible School classes meeting at 9:15 AM for young children, elementary age children, high schoolers, and young adults with disabilities.
We have young adult small group Bible study at the Thru The Roof House at 831 Sycamore. We also provide buddies for our younger friends to attend classes in the main building .
PARENTS' NIGHT OUT
About every two months, we plan a special evening. The children have a fun-filled evening and parents have a few hours of time to themselves.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO.
There are between 600 to 650 million people with disabilities in the world. If we were to place them together, “they would comprise the world’s third largest nation with the highest rates of homelessness, joblessness, divorce, abuse and suicide. . .Only 5 to 10% of the world’s disabled are effectively reached with the gospel, making the disabled community one of the largest unreached – some say under-reached- or hidden people groups in the world.”
