Our Joyful Friends Sunday School

Our Joyful Friends Sunday School

Central Christian Church Bradenton is a place where children, adults and their families living with autism, Down Syndrome, epilepsy, developmental delay, neurodiversity, intellectual or physical disability are included in all aspects of worship and ministry.


To provide an inclusive environment that encourages all to participate; we believe all of us need to:

  • Serve those feeling “unwelcome” by society, other churches or God; by being with them, listening, giving them voice and advocating on their behalf.

  • Serve people living in group homes and those with special needs and their families.

  • Bring people to God’s redemption and a new life with Christ.

  • Help to facilitate everyone’s journey of faith.

This is where you can feel at home and belong.
