Rooftop Friends Disability Ministry

RTF Family Retreat 2015 Logo

 

Rooftop Friends is the disabilities ministry of Young Meadows Presbyterian Church, seeking to share the love of Christ with families and individuals who care for loved ones, or even themselves with a physical, cognitive or behavioral disability. YMPC believes as members of the Body of Christ, we all are given a certain purpose and responsibity in the Body and that we need to aid one another in helping carry out the work the Lord has for us to do for his kingdom service.

The great need for this ministry came about through Biblical teaching and studying of God's Word as it tells us in Luke 14:12-24 in the Parable of the Great Banquet to "Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor, and crippled and blind and lame"; and "Go out the highways and the hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled."(vs.21,23).

Rooftop Friends provides respite care for children and adults with disabilities, giving their regular caregivers a time to rest, run errands, or just be away for a brief time. 

Rooftop Friends has sponsored Family Retreats along with Hope Heals ministry (established by Katherine and Jay Wolf) for several years at Camps ASCCA and McDowell, enlisting more than 600 campers and volunteers for two weeks of outdoor activities, fellowship with one another, and spiritual renewal.
