Epworth UM Church Offers New Ministry for Deaf Community
Epworth United Methodist Church in Rehoboth Beach has launched a new video ministry to the deaf community which includes an American Sign Language Interpreter as the main focus with a picture-in-picture of the church service. The recordings are available online – and an audio track is available for the hearing who may also be listening.
Funding for the new Ministry came from several sources. Locally funds from the David Fariss Memorial Fund at Epworth and a grant from the Peninsula-Delaware Conference of The UMC. Funding also came from the NorthEast Jurisdiction of The UMC and The United Methodist Committee for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministries.
