How good is your church community at welcoming people with disabilities into the life of your church? Perhaps you have taken steps to make the church accessible. But how much are people with disabilities really welcomed to participate?

This one-session study reviews recent historical changes in the rights persons have to access buildings and programs. It points out that many churches have made substantial changes enabling all to share in the faith life of their community. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their particular community and what sorts of changes may still need to be made in order to be a hospitable community for all persons.
