Friends for Life

Tuesdays, October 2nd – December 11th 7:40pm-8:45pm

2460 Potters Road, VB (Gym of London Bridge Baptist Church)
Cookies/dessert will be provided each time

Friends For Life is a group of young adults and adults with disabilities that
have graduated from high school. We will spend time getting to know one
another as well as spending some time in Bible study each time we are
together. The long term hope would be that we would be able to do
several service projects together, get these men/women plugged into local
churches, and even set up a mentoring program so that someone older in
the community is paired up with 1-2 of these men/women and is able to
spend time with them outside of the meetings together.
