Disability Awareness Sunday Sept. 25


Churches in the Illinois Great Rivers Conference observe Disability Awareness Sunday on the fourth Sunday of September or another date convenient to the congregation. Churches are encouraged to receive a special offering, which is remitted to the conference (IGRC # 0020 - Disability Awareness Sunday) for use in supporting congregations seeking to increase their architectural or attitudinal accessibility to people with disabilities (see Book of Discipline paragraph 265.4).
