Young Life Capernaum is hosting it’s first event in Lake County on Friday, May 25. Abled and disabled youth are invited to bowl at the Brunswick Zone, 316 Center Drive in Vernon Hills at 6:30pm.
Young Life Capernaum represents a growing movement among Christian churches to reach out to those with disabilities and promote peer friendship through club, camp, service and other activities. There are several Young Life groups in Lake County, but this is the first Capaernaum group in the county. TheNemoNews has reported on efforts to organize this new group. There is already a group in Naperville.
The Young Life website describes the project as follows.
Young Life Capernaum gives young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the chance to experience fun and adventure, to develop fulfilling friendships and to challenge their limits while building self-esteem through club, camp and other exciting activities. Young Life staff and volunteers model Christ’s unconditional love and acceptance as they walk alongside these young adults — filling their lives with love and support.
