Bethesda staff make a deep, lasting impact on the faith lives of people we support. We provide guidance, workbooks, activities, prayers and more to encourage people to grow together in their faith.
We offer a variety of materials for all ages, yet written at a level of understanding for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, so they can be fully included in their congregations and faith activities.
Our materials include:
Study and Worship: Our Ministry team has created Bible studies, devotions, prayer books, confirmation materials, and an advocacy workbook that help people with disabilities grow in their faith. We use visuals, appropriate reading levels and activities to promote learning and inclusion.
Wonderfully Made Pamphlets: These educational materials are created for teachers, leaders, advocates, friends and family members who teach, lead and support people of all abilities.
Disability Awareness: Materials designed to emphasize inclusion for people with disabilities including sermon notes, litany, Bible studies, children’s messages, and more.
You can also find our resources through Concordia Publishing House (CPH).
As an RSO of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, we partner with CPH to warehouse and fulfill some of our resources.
