Agape
Bible Study for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

Welcome


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 is an in-depth Bible study that allows everyone to participate at their level of understanding to experience a transformed heart through God’s Word, personal study, group discussion and fellowship.

Agape participants are 18 years or older and can read, write and communicate either independently or with help. Agape participants have the desire to be a part of a caring community that encourages becoming a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.
