Ministry to the Deaf/Hearing Impaired

When Eagle's Landing began 17 years ago, we began with a strong ministry to the Deaf.  We understand that the Deaf need a ministry tailored directly to their needs.  They cannot be expected to simply "blend in" with the hearing congregation.  Our deaf ministry is one of the strongest ministries we offer. We currently have 5 interpreters for the Deaf and two Bible teachers, one who is deaf and the other is hearing.  Both are excellent Bible teachers.  

When you arrive at Eagle's Landing you can expect to see other Deaf adults involved in Bible study and discipleship as well as ministry opportunities.  Here are some of our actvities that are available:

  • Sunday morning worship at 11:00 AM.  Every worship service is interpreted by one of our five trained interpreters.  The entire service is signed and a seating section is designated for the Deaf in every worship service.
  • Sunday morning Bible study class at 9:45 AM.  This Bible class is led by Richie Esposito. Richie is an experienced Bible teacher with a great sense of humor and solid Bible knowledge.    
  • Wednesday night Bible study/fellowship at 6:30 PM is led by our Music & Worship Leader, Denise Henderson.     Denise is also our pastor's wife and has a deep love for the Deaf and has been teaching the Bible for 40 years.       We are currently doing a Bible study overview of the New Testament.
  • Discipleship and Fellowship groups meet at other times also and are available to anyone who wishes to attend.     
  • Through the years many college students and also other adults have joined us in our Deaf Ministry area on Sunday mornings as a way to learn more about Deaf culture and also to learn to communicate.  If you are hoping to learn sign language this is an excellent way to get started!
