We're glad you're here.

And look at this! Some people came in, carrying a paralyzed man in a chair.
They wanted to bring him to Jesus, but they were not able to find a way in because of the crowd.
So they went up onto the roof and let him and his chair down through it!
— Luke 5:18

The Task Force is dedicated to opening hearts, minds, and doors for people of all abilities in the United Methodist Church. As an agency of the United Methodist Church, we welcome interested people of all backgrounds. We draw our mandate from the story in Luke, which tells how many people displayed through their actions that the man was part of their community.

We'd like to be those friends Jesus mentioned, and help you with your questions, even if it means knocking down some doors or a roof!

This website is designed to be accessible to visitors with a variety of disabilities and to a variety of browsers. We hope that you will find it to be clear and easy to read. Please use our contact page if you have any problems or questions.
