The St. Paul Handicapable Ministry welcomes any person over 16 years old with cognitive or physical disabilities. This ministry seeks to encourage every person to discover their confidence and security in God's love revealed in Jesus.
For the safety of our members, many of whom have underlying health conditions that make them vulnerable to COVID-19, Handicapable is not currently meeting in person. We are working toward a safe return in the fall. Until them you can join us for virtual worship on YouTube!
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Bible study is normally held every Wednesday night at 6:15 p.m. in the LuAnne Willey Fellowship Hall in the Christian Life Enrichment Center. During this time we explore God's great love through stories from the Bible. We pray, sing, participate in skits, watch DVDs and enjoy refreshments. Because of COVID-19 we invite you to study with us online. Subscribe to our Youtube channel for a new video every Wednesday at 6:30 PM.

Social Events and Activities
Throughout the year Handicapable hosts special events and offers opportunities for members and friends to have fun together at craft nights, themed dances and parties, our annual talent night, trips to baseball games and retreats. Members also have the chance to serve by taking part in mission projects, helping lead worship at Sabal Palms Childrens' Center, caroling for residents at nursing homes and more.

Horton Townes, the Director of our Handicapable Ministry, was featured on Bay News 9 as one of their "Everyday Heroes." Earlier this month Horton and Handi members Wendy Johnson and her daughter Estelle were interviewed for the story, which aired Monday, January 5 on Bay News 9. We are so proud of Horton and the Handicapable Ministry for all that has been accomplished in the over 20 years since the ministry was founded. What a great opportunity to share with the wider community what God is doing here at St. Paul through our Handicapable Ministry!
