All Abilities

Thornapple Community Church is dedicated to providing meaningful opportunities for people with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to be co-laborers with Christ.


Congregants with IDD are integrated into our church community. All are welcome in our worship services and can participate in a way that best meets their needs!


Adults are invited to participate in all adult programming. Children and youth are welcome to participate in all their regularly scheduled programming.

If the participant requires extra accommodations, such as a Buddy, please reach out to a member of the All Abilities Team for more information.

Group Home Partnerships

Thornapple partners with two men's Hope Network group homes. Members of the households are invited to attend Thornapple for worship and all church life activities. Members of the All Abilities Team host quarterly events with the households.
