Disability Ministry

"Jesus and Friends!"   (Saturday School)

We would like to acquaint you with one of Redeemer's special ministries, our "Jesus and Friends!" special ministry with and to the developmentally disabled adults of our area.  (Also known as: Saturday School.

Redeemer Lutheran Church of Atascadero, CA has sponsored Jesus and Friends!

for the developmentally disabled since 1981

This program ministers to developmentally disabled adults through worship and the Lord's Supper every Sunday, and during two Saturday meetings each month (1st and 3rd Saturdays, September thru May). Redeemer maintains a van that is used to pick up group home residents and bring them to church.

On Saturdays, the members join for songs, prayer, Bible stories, crafts, food, and fellowship. During Sunday worship services, these congregation members worship with us, following our worship liturgy and hymns, which are projected for use during the service.

The Lutheran Church of The Redeemer has joined with other Lutheran congregations in California-Nevada-Hawaii to provide information concerning Disability Ministry on the local level. 

Check our the Disability Ministry website at cnh-lcms.org/disabilityministries for more information and to view a video about what congregations can do to include all God's Children in worship, witness, service and growth in faith.

Saturday School 30 Year Anniversary was celebrated October 9, 2011 --

and 2019 marks the end of our 38th year!

Redeemer’s ministry to developmentally disabled adults, JESUS AND FRIENDS! (Saturday School), held a celebration October 16, 2016 to mark the start of our 36th year!  

Many special guests, including former Pastors and Saturday School staff, were present at the morning Service -- as the current students led us in singing several songs we have learned in Saturday School.

Following the service of worship and celebration, refreshments were served in the upstairs fellowship hall.  We all enjoyed the event very much, to the glory of God.

We hope you will join us in praising God for the members of our Saturday School and along with them. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about this special ministry.
