Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

A community of parents and caregivers who come together to share advice, struggles, and the joys of caring for our family members with special needs

About our Ministry

Fearfully & Wonderfully Made is a support group for parents and caregivers of family members with special needs. Our group provides a safe place to discuss struggles, celebrate joys, learn together, and build fellowship in our parish. 

Our namesake comes from Psalm 139:13-14
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (NIV)
