Wings and Prayers Ministry

Dear Friends,

Just a reminder that our next Wings & Prayers Service will be held on Sunday, June 15th at 3pm at Crossroads Chapel. Since it is Father’s Day we will be celebrating our Fathers and men who are like fathers in our lives. Please share the following Summer Worship service flyer with your networks as widely as possible. We want to get the word out about this ‘differently abled’ service, open to all but especially for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families and loved ones. Please feel free to contact me as listed below with any questions you may have.

The Lego Movie - A Sensory Friendly Showing

ASMC is partnering with Wehrenberg Galaxy 14 to present a sensory friendly showing of The Lego Movie. The lights are brought up and sound is turned down. It’s OK if people need to get up and move around or talk.

Download the attached coloring pages for the kids. Color them, scan them, and then email us (or give them to us at the movie) and we'll post them on our Facebook page.
We will also be giving away two lego sets, one for a girl and one for a boy. The kids will be handed a ticket when they arrive.

The movie starts at 11:00 AM, but please be there by 10:30 AM.

All families who have children and adults with autism welcome. 

The movie is free for ASMC members and $5.50 for non-members. Learn more about joining ASMC as a member.
