Grace 2 Go

Grace2Go is a mobile “church-on-wheels” that brings monthly worship services for special needs families to churches around the state of Connecticut. Grace2go was founded in 2014 by Sharon Betts from St. Michael’s Church in Naugatuck. Sharon works as a pediatric nurse for special needs children. Sharon discovered that many parents did not have a place to worship together, finding church services to be too difficult for their families. She founded Grace2go in order to “provide an inviting atmosphere that welcomes typically abled and and differently abled youth and children to worship together in a judgement-free environment.”

Grace2Go serves children with autism, ADHD, Epilepsy, Down Syndrome, sensory processing disorder, global development delay, cerebral palsy or any other challenge. Our goal is to bring the love of Christ to all of God’s children, to be Jesus’ “hands and feet in the world”by sharing His love with families for whom a “normal”church service might be a difficulty.
