Parables is a no-shushing, 40-minute worship service designed for all abilities, especially for families who would like a progressive faith community where people on the margins, because of intellectual or developmental disabilities, are empowered to share their gifts. For example, a non-verbal child with autism who likes to walk a lot while flapping his hands, a young adult with Tourette’s Syndrome who would like to participate as a speaker, or an elder with dementia will all find welcome and belonging here.

     The setting is fragrance-free, hands-on music-friendly, and the communion bread is freshly baked that day and gluten-free. There are sensory headphones and therapy dog available throughout the evening, and the order of service follows a similar flow each week for those who appreciate predictable structure. This community celebrates the “little red fish in all of us”—that part of us that yearns to swim against the tide!
     Immediately followed by a pizza meal with gluten-free option. Beginning June 25th, 5pm, and subsequent 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.
