Sunday School:

Friends of Jesus: 
    Ministry with Adults with Special Needs

They cancelled service this Wednesday evening to play with the Friends of Jesus.

You've got to love a church like that!

The Friends of Jesus is a Sunday School class of 40-50 adults with special needs at First Baptist Church Lumberton NC. 
Most of them live in group homes in Robeson County.  Folks from the church pick them up each Sunday morning and a rotation of adult leaders teach the SS class. 

In addition to special events like the Wednesday evening softball game that 'preempted church,' the Friends of Jesus also lead in worship once a year.

"The members of this class teach us so much about the purity of Christian joy and love," says pastor David Elks.  "We are proud of them and thankful for the privilege to learn what friendship with Jesus really means."

What an amazing way to be known in your community.. as the Friends of Jesus.
