Churches are called to be a place of welcoming and belonging, but it is common for individuals and families with disabilities to not feel like they have a place in the Church. Seat At The Table is a ministry designed to address this problem and help families feel integrated into the local church. This ministry is a part of Plainfield Christian Church, located in Plainfield, Indiana. Seat At The Table desires to create a space for individuals and families to encounter Jesus and to form a deep and lasting relationship with Him. Along with this, they want participants in the ministry to learn to be Active in the Body, to Boast in the Gospel, to Live in Love, and to Engage in Community. This will be done through Sunday School – both Buddies and the Perfect Fit room, Vacation Bible School, Integrated Camp, Respite Nights, and Family Fest.
