The mission of the Caring Congregation Committee (CCC) is to support families of children and adults with a variety of special needs. Our on-going goal is to “Reach Out and Welcome All: Experiencing Differences as Opportunity.” We have a commitment of attending to issues of special needs and mental and behavioral health as they manifest themselves in our community.

We work against stigma, and we provide resource materials and a curriculum for increasing understanding of persons with mental health or learning challenges.

We:

  • organize mental health focused worship services
  • address the issue of parenting children and adults with special needs
  • and provide workshops on various subjects
  • maintain a Resource Directory
