Faith Resources

At Bethesda, we provide resources to congregations and people of all abilities, so together we can grow in our faith in Christ.

Tools for building inclusive faith communities

As a Christian organization, we are dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities have meaningful and enriching experiences within a congregation. Through our free downloadable faith resources, we help congregations build welcoming and inclusive faith communities, and we help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities find a welcoming congregation of their own. Our goal is to help every person find their church home.

We're pleased to make our popular Grief and Loss Scrapbook for people with developmental disabilities available again.

This resource includes suggested prayers for mourning the loss of a family member, friend or roommate.
