Do you have a heart for people with disabilities?

Are you a person with a disability with a story to tell?

We would love to hear from you!

One of the goals of Disability Ministries of the Susquehanna Conference is to create a regular newsletter as well as to regularly update our blog with news and resources about the church and the disability community.
