Pug Wugs is a national ministry reaching out to people with mental retardation and their families through the church.
The Pug Wugs at Bux-Mont Christian Church began in 1984 as a result of one father’s wish for his son with Down Syndrome to be an important and active member of the church family. The church then explored different options and came across the Pug Wug program for people with special needs. The group started with five of the young man’s friends; and today it is a group of thirty plus individuals ranging from the ages of fourteen to forty years old.
The program provides a time to come together and share God’s Word among peers. It has also been an opportunity for relationships to develop and grow over the years. For the family members, it has naturally created an environment to share concerns, ideas, and provide encouragement for each other.
Pug Wugs is a nationally known ministry to people with special needs and it allows one to be an active participant within the community through the church.
If you have a family member or know of someone with special needs, please contact the church for more information on enrollment into the Pug Wugs ministry.
