March is National Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Month. We hope you will join Rejoicing Spirits in a month of prayer and awareness for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities online and in your faith communities. Our February resource email will focus on helping host sites lift up the gifts people with disabilities have and are to the church and society, but we could use your help to make this happen. We’re asking congregations to do one or more of the following things:

  1. Send us one to two prayer petitions to share with our Rejoicing Spirits Facebook page and online community.
  2. Commit to praying for the full inclusion of our brothers and sisters with disabilities in our houses of worship and other parts society. (Prayer petitions will be made available.)
  3. Invite people with disabilities to participate in and/or lead a part of a Sunday morning worship service.
  4. Share the work of Rejoicing Spirits with your church body and partners in ministry. (A bulletin insert will be made available.)

Let us know if you will participate, have prayer petitions or other ideas by emailing
