Special Needs

The mission of our Special Needs Ministry is to make sure that no one misses the grace of God by providing a safe, positive, welcoming environment for individuals with special needs, be it physical, intellectual, mental, behavioral, or any combination.

Our servant leaders, called Buddies, are the smiles, hands, and heart of Jesus. They pair up with individuals with special needs in both the inclusive environment and the special needs classroom.

Worship time, Bible stories, crafts, and fun are all a part of the Sunday morning program so that each individual can know God and learn about the love of Christ.
