(July 29, 2014) -- Eastview Christian Church in Normal, Illinois is offering a vacation bible school program this week for children on the autism spectrum and their siblings. The program hopes to bring an autism-friendly experience for families to enjoy together. 

The program will take place each day this week from 5:00 pm to 7:45 pm. For more information and to sign up you can reach out to Kelly Woith at kmwoith1@gmail.com.

Faith is a very important part of life for so many families in the autism community. Many of these families often feel held back from becoming a part of their religious community because of their child's diagnosis. They might feel excluded, or just assume that they won't be supported or accepted. 

Our hope is that all families affected by autism may be welcomed in their house of worship, and able to become active participants in their faith community. We have put together a list of resources that families and faith leaders may find helpful.
