Odyssey Church

Odyssey is…A ministry of Hopewell Reformed Church that focuses on providing a safe place for people with special needs to be part of a community of believers to experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ. A worship service looking to integrate all of God’s children. Our goal is to adapt worship for people with physical, emotional, and intellectual disabilities.
