Haven for Special Needs Families

Damascus Road Community Church is an inclusive, loving church, reflecting the heart of Christ - where everyone is welcome: children, teens and adults with disabilities, along with their families and friends.  Our Haven Ministry exists to prepare a place for families and individuals with special needs to worship and find Christ-centered community.  Beginning March 12, HAVEN will meet weekly...
