We are developing this page with listings of Deaf social events, an ASL theater group, and faith communities with ALS-interpreted services and technology to make activities accessible to hard-of-hearing congregants.
If you know of social and support groups in the Waco-area Deaf and hard-of hearing communities, please let us know on the form at the bottom of this page.
So far we have listings for:
Crestview Church of Christ Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministry
Crestview Church of Christ’s Sunday morning workshop is at 10 AM. They are meeting in person and broadcasting their services on Facebook live. Crestview has qualified interpreters for song and prayer services and certified and qualified interpreters for the sermon. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministry also participates in Deaf events, and sometimes the church hosts Deaf events. For more information about the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ministry at Crestview Church of Christ, please contact Jane Harvill at 254-710-1517 or Jane_Harvill@baylor.edu.
Facebook groups with Waco Deaf community activities
There’s always something new to do in Waco’s Deaf community. You’ll find the greatest variety of events on the Waco Deaf Events Facebook page. In July 2022 alone, members listed a picnic, an ASL-interpreted play, and bowling, miniature golfing, and roller skating events. There is also a weekly First Friday get-together, which presently meets from 6 to 9 PM at the Richland Mall. The Waco ASL Community Facebook page lists fewer events and more learning and job opportunities. Events listed on both pages welcome Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people, their family members, ASL interpreters, and anyone wanting to connect and learn.
