Our Programs

Rainbow Express Ministries offers a variety of programming opportunities on both an annual and weekly basis. Some of these offerings are age group or program member-specific and others are open to the public.

 

SUMMER CAMPS

Rainbow Express Camp is a weeklong day camp offered each summer at Matthews United Methodist Church to serve children and youth with special needs, as they "team up" with youth and other children. This camp is designed, organized and led by students as an outreach ministry. 

HAITI PARTNERSHIP

Over the past six years Rainbow Express Ministries has established a partnership with the Wings of Hope family in Jacmel, Haiti. Each year we have worked alongside the staff of Wings of Hope in offering Rainbow Express day camp. 

YOUNG ADULT GROUP

Rainbow Express Ministries offers opportunities for young adults with disabilities to belong to a community where they can build friendships and explore, develop and share their gifts and abilities. This includes daily gatherings three times a week, serving others, retreats, Bible study, and fellowship. 

Consultant Work

Luke 14 calls the church to invite and welcome all persons. Does your church have the desire to create a disability ministry or a desire to reimagine/reenergize an existing disability ministry? If so, Rainbow Express Ministries is available to come alongside your church in a consultant role.
