Bible Study for adults with intellectual disabilities


Available In-Person or Online

Agape is an in-depth Bible Study for adults with intellectual disabilities that promotes transformation of hearts through God’s Word while participating in personal study, group discussion and fellowship. Adults with intellectual disabilities appreciate the opportunity to find a place where God’s Word is shared in a way that can be easily understood through adapted curriculum and creative teaching. Agape participants desire to be a part of a caring community that encourages becoming a disciple of Christ.
