St. John’s Episcopal Church offers Rhythms of Grace

From Massachusetts

This Sunday, Feb. 10, at 2 p.m., St. John’s Episcopal Church in Holbrook is hosting Rhythms of Grace, a new monthly church service designed for families with special-needs children.

“This is a form of worship that is more conducive for children with special needs,” said church priest-in-charge the Rev. Diane Wong.

Rhythms of Grace is an interactive, multi-age-appropriate worship service combining storytelling, arts and crafts, fine and large motor activities and Communion.

“Some children have a difficult time in a traditional church setting. It is hard for them to just sit and listen,” Wong said. “Rhythms of Grace allows them to get more out of a service. The children have things to touch and hold and activities related to the gospel lesson for that Sunday.”
