KALEIDOSCOPE
A Ministry for People of All Abilities
 
The Well’s Kaleidoscope Ministry provides support and opportunities for a successful and meaningful experience for all people.
 
The ministry encompasses CONNECT, ENGAGE and SEND.
 
CONNECT 

The United Methodist Church recognizes and affirms the full humanity of personhood for people of all abilities as full members of the family of God.

Supported by the Kaleidoscope Team, The Well’s church family welcomes all visitors and members with intellectual, physical, developmental, and/or psychological and neurological conditions or disabilities. The Well’s facilities are accessible for all those attending worship, fellowship and Christian education. The church family is encouraged to recognize and receive all people’s gifts so that everyone may be a full participant in a community of faith.

One Sunday in October, the Kaleidoscope Team leads worship in order to further connect our community of faith with the lives and challenges of families.

At The Well, all are welcome.
 
 
 
 
ENGAGE 

The Well wants every child, youth and adult that may have intellectual, developmental, physical or mental health challenges to be in an environment where they can learn and flourish. Through the Kaleidoscope Team, The Well provides person centered learning by using the G.L.U.E. process (Giving, Loving, Understanding, Encouraging). Staff and volunteers work with families so people of all abilities can learn about our loving God and Jesus Christ.

Once a year, The Kaleidoscope Team invites people from the congregation to attend a smposium on Mental Health and Learning Disabilities. Open to the community, the Kaleidoscope Team also sponsors presentations focusing on Mental Health.
 
 
 
 
 
 
SEND
Carnivale! is a respite care ministry for parents who have children with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities and their siblings so parents may have a time to refresh themselves in order to take care of the demands of parenthood.Click HERE for more information on Carnivale!
 

The Shamrock Ball is a prom, held in May, for high school special education students at Rosemount High, who are members of The Well or the Carnivale! ministry and students who have graduated and are in a transition program. National Honor Society students from Rosemount High join in on the fun as escorts. Highlights of the evening are the Grand March, the dancing and the memories that all students take away with them.

For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.”
Romans 12:4-5
