If you are looking for a church that is more likely to understand your physical limitations, including illness, cancer, or disabilities, Joni and Friends is an excellent resource.
This international Christian ministry has an updated list of churches around the USA who have shared their desire to create an environment that welcomes those who may be “differently-abled.”

You may also want to visit our HopeKeepers map to see if there is a church near you who has a HopeKeepers group that serves the chronically ill.
Are you in a church where you want to stay but think they may be able to use a bit of a “refresher” on reaching out to the chronically ill? Our little booklet, “Beyond Casseroles: 505 Ways to Encourage a Chronically Ill Friend” is one of those no church should be without. If you can convince church leadership to have a 5-minute “awareness tip” before starting a meeting, our DVD, Beyond Casseroles DVD Training Tool is a great way to inform them in less than 5 minutes. Both are published and produced here at Rest Ministries.
