Special Needs Ministry



Embracing an inclusive community that breaks down barriers to value children and families with special needs while empowering all to live for and serve God together.

Programs & Events

Buddy Program
We want your child(ren) to worship and participate in their respective age groups with their peers! Each child in need is paired with a buddy during each Sunday service.

Respite Nights
Parents of children with special needs can drop off their kids and enjoy some “me time” during our Respite Nights! Fun activities will be provided for all children with buddies, while parents relax and have some free time! 

Parent Support Meetings
We understand that special needs families face challenges every day, so our Parent Support Meetings are designed to support you and provide a space to share, pray, and grow together in community in His Kingdom!

How to Get Involved

For Families
After meeting your beautiful family, we will arrange a buddy for your child as needed. We also will ask you to fill out a questionnaire so that we can get to know your child better.

For Volunteers
Each family with special needs requires our support! What an opportunity of growth! We want you to join us to serve in this special community. We will walk you through observations and provide you with trainings before you serve and walk alongside of you every step of the way.
