Lovers Lane Deaf Ministry
Our Deaf Fellowship meets Sundays at the Christ Family Center (northwest side of campus) in room 103/105, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. for Bible study and worship in American Sign Language. We provide voice interpreting for our hearing friends and families of the Deaf.
On the first Sundays of the month, our Deaf Fellowship worships at the 10:50 a.m. traditional worship service in the Sanctuary (east side of campus) which is also captioned and interpreted in ASL. On all other Sundays of the month, the Deaf Fellowship worships with the CrossWalk modern service in Asbury Hall at 10:50 a.m., interpreted in ASL.
Our Deaf Fellowship and ministry offers Bible study, retreats, missions, and programs locally and globally in ASL. Our sign choir performs monthly at our traditional worship service and rehearses Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. downstairs of the Sanctuary. We offer pastoral care, baptisms, weddings, and funerals in ASL by our pastor of the Deaf, Rev. Dr. Tom Hudspeth, who is assisted by Certified Lay Deaf Servants Scott Burley, Susan Judd and Naomi Rapp. Upon consultation with our SEEDS team, we may provide life skills training for Deaf young adults, with one-on-one mentoring.
