Church Of The Incarnation in Mineral invites you to attend a new worship experience at 4 p.m. in the fellowship hall. This service is ecumenical in nature and specially designed for individuals and families with special needs.

Approximately 20 percent of the population has a disabling condition. More than 400 students in Louisa County Schools are special needs students. It is often difficult for families with special needs members to find a worship experience that is welcoming. If that has been your experience, then this is the worship service for you. It will last between 30 to 40 minutes and include music, a lesson and short teaching, prayers and an activity based on the lesson. This will be an interactive service allowing people to participate at whatever level they wish to. The service will be followed by the Community Table dinner at 5 p.m. If there is a strong interest, we shall offer this service monthly or more often.
